4.0 out of 5 stars Useful but on occasion abstruse, March 24 2001

This review is from: The Ecological Detective: Confronting Models with Data (MPB-28) (Paperback)
Hilborn and Mangel should be congratulated, if only for re-publishing Chamberlain's essay on Multiple Woorking Hypotheses, which should be on every ecologist's "Must Read" list but has till now been all too hard to find. Beyond that however the authors give some fascinating examples of ecological analysis based on real-world data, with clear explanations of the perils & pitfalls that they themselves have had to skirt. I have most of the Princeton Monographs, but find that this one is already more dog-eared than many of the others that have sat on the shelf much longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!, May 24 2000

This review is from: The Ecological Detective: Confronting Models with Data (MPB-28) (Paperback)
The Ecological Detective was an excellent, very readable introduction to the idea of combining data and models. Hilborn and Mangel have made a good case for something other than Popperian hypothetico-deductive methods in ecology, and done so in a way that demystifes the use of ecological models, maximum likelihood estimation and Bayesian statistics. Very readable.
