Book Description

Nov. 4 2005 1405115440 978-1405115445
During the last 10 years numerical methods have begun to dominate paleontology. These methods now reach far beyond the fields of morphological and phylogenetic analyses to embrace biostratigraphy, paleobiogeography, and paleoecology. Paleontological Data Analysis explains the key numerical techniques in paleontology, and the methodologies employed in the software packages now available.
  • Following an introduction to numerical methodologies in paleontology, and to univariate and multivariate techniques (including inferential testing), there follow chapters on morphometrics, phylogenetic analysis, paleobiogeography and paleoecology, time series analysis, and quantitative biostratigraphy
  • Each chapter describes a range of techniques in detail, with worked examples, illustrations, and appropriate case histories
  • Describes the purpose, type of data required, functionality, and implementation of each technique, together with notes of caution where appropriate
  • The book and the accompanying PAST software package (see www.blackwellpublishing.com/hammer) are important investigative tools in a rapidly developing field characterized by many exciting new discoveries and innovative techniques
  • An invaluable tool for all students and researchers involved in quantitative paleontology

    Review

    "I would definitely encourage students, later-year undergraduate or graduate, embarking on palaeontological research involving more than the most trivial statistics to buy this book, not just rely on the library copy."
    Newsletter of Micropalaeontology <!--end-->

    'I warmly encourage all graduate students, post-docs, and academics in palaeontology to acquire a copy - and to use it.'
    Geology Today

    "All in all this is to my mind and excellent book."

    Book Description

    During the last 10 years numerical methods have begun to dominate paleontology. These methods now reach far beyond the fields of morphological and phylogenetic analyses to embrace biostratigraphy, paleobiogeography, and paleoecology. The availability of cheap computing power, together with a wide range of software products, has made increasingly complex algorithms accessible to the vast majority of paleontologists.Paleontological Data Analysis explains the key numerical techniques in paleontology, and the methodologies employed in the software packages now available.

    This book is well organized, very easy to understand. I think it can be used as introductory textbook for senior undergraduate student who is interested in evolution and paleontology.

    It would be better if the authors can include more information about diversity change, life-and-death mole as well as comparative phylogenetic analysis etc.

    finally, I learned a lot from this this book!
