Yesterday I asked my beloved Twitter nerds to recommend to me their favourite quantitative texts in Ecology:
my postdoc super tells me I can BUY BOOKS! 💓📚📚💓 quick sweet friends, what are your fun statistical ecology book recommendations?— Andrew MacDonald (@polesasunder) December 2, 2016
As a way of saying “Thank you!” I thought that I would put all the books in a list for anyone who is curious.
