"Focuses on the importance of careful experimental design and provides a great diversity of statistical techniques needed to analyze the data obtained. These designs and methods are classified for easy reference. Fully examines the assumptions underlying practical methods in current use, together with procedures for testing their validity. Every technique is demonstrated by at least one worked example, using data gathered from natural or free-ranging populations in numerous lands. Includes new chapters on recent developments in closed and open populations."--The publisher.
