Ecological Models and Data in R
  • miscellaneous thoughts (a pseudo-blog/catch-all space)
  • errata (not too many I hope)
  • answers to frequently asked questions
  • clarifications or extensions of discussions in the book, etc.. I am starting out by posting (in the chapters section) (1) notes that I took as I went through the proofs about things I wished I'd said but didn't have room for or couldn't change (2) points that people have made in e-mail since then.
  • Courses around the world offered on these topics
  • Worked examples of various sorts
  • To do list: things I intend to get around to

    • B. Hanowell's Evolutionary Modeling Survival Kit blog entry says:

Get this book or something remotely like it and nerd out despite your [partner]'s protests (besides, you know [they] think deep down in [their] heart that Bayesian inference is sexy!).

C’est LE LIVRE qu’il faut avoir quand on fait de la modélisation en écologie et qu’on utilise R. Idéal pour ceux qui veulent s’initier à la modélisation et à l’inférence statistique avec R et Winbugs. N’hésitez pas à consulter le site internet de Benjamin Bolker qui met beaucoup de choses à disposition de qui veut bien (même une version presque complète de son livre en pdf…)

Happy modeling!

Ben Bolker
