Title: Hierarchical spatio-temporal models for ecological processes
Author: Hooten, Mevin B., 1976-
Date: 2006
Publisher: University of Missouri--Columbia
Abstract: Ecosystems are composed of phenomena that propagate in time and space. Often, ecological processes underlying such phenomena are studied separably in various subdisciplines, while larger scale, interlinking mechanisms are overlooked or only speculated about. As grows the burden of global climate change and human disturbance of natural systems, so grows the need for rigorous statistical methods focused on characterizing and forecasting large scale spatiotemporal environmental and ecological processes in the presence of limited data and multiple sources of uncertainty. Hierarchical models offer a powerful means with which to study complex phenomena in space and time. This dissertation develops and illustrates the utility of spatiotemporal hierarchical models for studying ecological phenomena.
