STATISTICAL SLEUTH is an innovative treatment of general statistical methods, taking full advantage of the computer, both as a computational and an analytical tool. The material is independent of any specific software package. In "The American Statistician" (February 2000, Vol. 54, No. 1), George Cobb commented, "What is new and different about Ramsey and Schafer's book, what makes it a 'larger contribution, ' is that it gives much more prominence to modeling and interpretation of the sort that goes beyond the routine patterns." His students did "substantially better" on term papers based on the analysis of data. In the book, the focus is on a serious analysis of real case studies; on strategies and tools of modern statistical data analysis; on the interplay of statistics and scientific learning; and on the communication of results. With interesting examples, real data, and a variety of exercise types (conceptual, computational, and data problems), the authors get students excited about statistics

Fire frequency effects on fuel loadings in pine-oak forests of the Madrean Province

Loadings of downed woody fuels in pine-oak forests of the Madrean Province are heavier on sites in southeastern Arizona with low fire frequencies and lower on sites in northeastern Sonora, Mexico, with high fire frequencies. Low fire frequencies in southeastern Arizona are attributed largely to past land uses and the fire suppression policies of land management agencies in the United States. Ecologists and land managers interested in reintroducing fire into these forests to reduce fuel loadings and meet other land management objectives could use information about fuel buildups in their planning efforts. Quantifying these fuel loadings could also be useful in improving fire behavior models for the forests.

La 4e de couverture indique : Cet ouvrage, à la fois complet et concis, a pour objectif d'offrir aux étudiants de 1er cycle des filières économiques, commerciales une introduction conceptuelle aux statistiques et à leurs applications. L'ouvrage comporte treize chapitres traitant de façon simple et claire les sujets majeurs en statistiques, de l'analyse des données à l'analyse de la régression simple et multiple, en passant par la théorie probabiliste, les méthodes d'échantillonnage, l'estimation par intervalle et les tests d'hypothèses. La compréhension des concepts statistiques présentés dans cet ouvrage ne requiert aucun outil mathématique autre que la connaissance de l'algèbre. L'un des atouts de cet ouvrage est son orientation clairement affichée vers l'application concrète des statistiques au travers d'exemples récents issus du monde économique réel, illustrant les concepts statistiques présentés dans chaque chapitre ou encore au travers d'exercices fondés sur des données réelles. L'objectif de cette démarche est de montrer aux étudiants comment les statistiques participent à la prise de décision quasi-quotidienne dans les entreprises. L'accent est mis sur l'utilisation pratique des différents outils statistiques, grâce à la présentation des techniques de programmation sous trois logiciels : Excel 2013, StatTools et Minitab.
