Individual-Based Models and Approaches In Ecology: Populations, Communities and Ecosystems

D. L. DeAngelis
November 29, 2017

Until fairly recently, populations were handled as homogenized averages, which made modeling feasible but which ignored the essential fact that in any population there is a great variety of individuals of different ages, sizes, and degrees of fitness. Recently, because of the increased...

Remote Sensing of Hydrometeorological Hazards

George P. Petropoulos, Tanvir Islam
November 02, 2017

Extreme weather and climate change aggravate the frequency and magnitude of disasters. Facing atypical and more severe events, existing early warning and response systems become inadequate both in scale and scope. Earth Observation (EO) provides today information at global, regional and even basin...

Bioassays with Arthropods, Third Edition

Jacqueline L. Robertson, Moneen Marie Jones, Efren Olguin, Brad Alberts
June 19, 2017

Imagine a statistics book for bioassays written by a statistician. Next, imagine a statistics book for bioassays written for a layman. Bioassays with Arthropods, Third Edition offers the best of both worlds by translating the terse, precise language of the statistician into language used by the...

Spatial Data Quality: From Process to Decisions

Rodolphe Devillers, Helen Goodchild
May 24, 2017

Producing maps that depict the real world accurately has been a major concern of cartographers for centuries. This is especially true today as escalating access to geospatial data and the subsequent increase in user-generated content provided by Web 2.0 have significantly altered the typical...

Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis

Jingxiong Zhang, Peter Atkinson, Michael F. Goodchild
April 06, 2017

Now ubiquitous in modern life, spatial data present great opportunities to transform many of the processes on which we base our everyday lives. However, not only do these data depend on the scale of measurement, but also handling these data (e.g., to make suitable maps) requires that we account for...

Animal Movement: Statistical Models for Telemetry Data

Mevin B. Hooten, Devin S. Johnson, Brett T. McClintock, Juan M. Morales
January 17, 2017

The study of animal movement has always been a key element in ecological science, because it is inherently linked to critical processes that scale from individuals to populations and communities to ecosystems. Rapid improvements in biotelemetry data collection and processing technology have given...
