Individual chapters cover facets of experimental design, statistics, experimental variables and treatments, measurements of plants and their environment, spatial pattern analysis, life tables, and modelling. Numerous citations to the current research literature are provided, and four case studies are referred to throughout the book to illustrate the use of methodology. The book provides guidance for researchers so that they can critically evaluate the problem they are addressing, and determine the most suitable approach. The book will be of value to teachers who are developing field and laboratory modules in population ecology. * A user-friendly primer on the methodology of plant population ecology research. * Describes what sort of experiments to use, how to design them, and how to interpret, analyse, and report the results. * Designed for enquiry-based courses where students are asked to design and conduct their own experiments.
