The editors have assembled 23 chapters covering all aspects of conceptualizing, designing, analyzing, and even terminating an ecological monitoring program. Many have lamented the sorry state of many monitoring efforts. Yet, there is a large body of technical expertise and experience that tells experts how to design a good monitoring program and then how to analyze the data appropriately. This book was written and edited to present that knowledge to a broad audience of ecologists.
