Statistical Analysis of Behavioural Data
An Approach Based on Time-Structured Models
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
The authors show how to analyse behavioural data starting with a basic model, the continuous-time Markov chain. They then indicate how and when this model can be generalized and demonstrate the suitability of their approach for detecting, for example, the effects of different experimental treatments or of changes in the social or physical environment. Competitive interactions such as predator-prey or host-parasite are also good subjects for this type of analysis.

Biology takes a special place among the other natural sciences because biological units, be they pieces of DNA, cells or organisms, reproduce more or less faithfully. As for any other biological processes, reproduction has a large random component...

"A description of advanced statistical techniques used for the analysis of behavioral observations collected over time. The special mathematical techniques required to analyze these situations are developed and illustrate with worked-out examples. The book has a hands-on feel and discusses many practical issues that are likely to arise. Recommended." --Choice<br> "Considers quantitative data analysis methods based upon explicit methods of the temporal structure of behavior. . . . logically structured and information-packed." --Perceptual and Motor Skills<br>
