9780128013700: Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, Bugs, and Stan: Including Comparisons to Frequentist Statistics

Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, BUGS, and STAN introduces the Bayesian and frequentist methods of conducting data analyses. The book provides the theoretical background in an easy to understand way and it encourages the reader to think about the processes that generated their data. Model selection and multi-model inference are discussed and effort is made to create effect plots that allow a much more natural interpretation of the data rather than simple parameter estimates. Model checking by graphical analysis and by posterior predictive checking is also discussed. Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, BUGS, and STAN encourages readers to think about the processes that generated their data and to build models that reflect these processes as close as possible. Therefore, the Bayesian software, BUGS, JAGS, STAN and LaplacesDemon are introduced. This book guides the reader from easy towards more complex (real) data analyses, step by step. The problems and solutions, including all R codes, presented in the book are most often replicable to other data and questions. Thus, this book can be used continually as a resource for all sorts of questions and field data collected. * Offers Bayesian data analysis, allowing users to obtain uncertainty measurements easily for any derived parameter of interest* Written in a step-by-step approach, which is accessible to non-statisticians* Includes companion website containing R-code to help users conduct Bayesian data analyses on their own data

About the Author:

Fr nzi Korner-Nievergelt has been working as a statistical consultant since 2003. Dr. Korner-Nievergelt conducts research in ecology and ecological statistics at the Swiss Ornithological Institute and oikostat GmbH. Additionally, she provides data analyses for scientific projects in the public and private sector. A large part of her work involves teaching courses for scientists at scientific institutions and private organizations. Tobias Roth is a postdoc at the University of Basel where he teaches masters level courses in statistics for ecology and biology students. In addition, Dr. Tobias Roth is co-owner and project manager at Hintermann & Weber AG, where he is responsible for data analyses and develops analytical methods for biodiversity monitoring programs. Stefanie von Felten has a PhD in Plant Ecology and a diploma of advanced studies in statistics. Since 2010 she works as statistician at the University Hospital Basel where she is involved in planning, analysis and publication of clinical studies. In addition, Dr. von Felten is a statistical consultant for oikostat GmbH. She has been teaching statistics in several courses for Master and PhD students at various academic institutions and for doctors and other health personnel at the Hospital. J r me Gu lat has been leading the GIS team at the Swiss Ornithological Institute for more than 6 years. He uses spatial statistics to provide guidance to applied conservation problems. He also teaches a short course on spatial and Bayesian statistics. Bettina Almasi has a PhD in eco-physiology and ecology from the University of Zurich and a post-diploma course in applied statistics from the ETH Zurich. Dr. Almasi conducts research in stress physiology and behavioural ecology at the Swiss Ornithological Institute and works part-time as a statistical consultant at oikostat GmbH Pius Korner-Nievergelt has a PhD in ecology, conservation biology and a post-diploma course in applied statistics both from ETH Zurich. Dr. Korner-Nievergelt works as a statistician at oikostat GmbH as well as at the Swiss Ornithological Institute for data analyses, mainly regarding ecological questions.
