Periphyton-Water Quality Relationships along a Nutrient Gradient in the Northern Florida Everglades
The Everglades periphyton assemblage is sensitive to phosphorus enrichment and may provide one of the first reliable indications of eutrophication in the marsh.
Impact Assessment Using the Before-After-Control-Impact (BACI) Model: Concerns and Comments
The effect of a change in an ecosystem can often be assessed through the use of a statistical model that incorporates the change. A sensible approach for assessing the effects of an industrial or p...
Nonparametric estimation of species richness
Two procedures, the jackknife and the bootstrap, are discussed as methods for estimating the number of species by the sampling of quadrats. Explicit formulas for both procedures are presented and
Using R for Introductory Statistics
This book has done a good job in elaborating select statistical tools and concepts that are useful for Six Sigma practitioners and could be used as a stepping stone for practitioners to more formal statistical references if they are interested in further details in the inner mechanism of a statistical approach and/or if their tasks require nonstandard assumptions.
Niche Breadth, Resource Availability, and Inference
Methods are developed for comparing breadth measures, testing a breadth measure equal to a given value, and for estimating confidence intervals and a new breadth measure is presented which has good statistical properties and is related to some commonly used niche overlap measures.
