New book: Spatial, Temporal and Spatial-Temporal Ecological Data Analysis with R-INLA

Alain Zuur
We are pleased to announce the following book:

Spatial, Temporal and Spatial-Temporal Ecological Data Analysis with R-INLA
Authors: Zuur, Ieno, Saveliev


Book website: www.highstat.com
Paperback or EBook can be order (exclusively) from www.highstat.com
TOC: http://highstat.com/Books/BGS/SpatialTemp/Zuuretal2017_TOCOnline.pdf


Summary: We explain how to apply linear regression models, generalised
linear models (GLM), and generalised linear mixed-effects models (GLMM)
to spatial, temporal, and spatial-temporal data.


Outline
In Chapter 2 we discuss an important topic: dependency. Ignoring this
means that we have pseudoreplication. We present a series of examples
and discuss how dependency can manifest itself.

We briefly discuss frequentist tools that are available for the analysis
of temporal and spatial data in Chapters 3 and 4, and we will conclude
that their application is rather limited, especially if non-Gaussian
distributions are required. We will therefore consider alternative
models, but these require Bayesian techniques.

In Chapter 5 we discuss linear mixed-effects models to analyse
hierarchical (i.e. clustered or nested) data, and in Chapter 6 we
outline how we add spatial and spatial-temporal dependency to regression
models via spatial (and/or temporal) correlated random effects.

In Chapter 7 we introduce Bayesian analysis, Markov chain Monte Carlo
techniques (MCMC), and Integrated Nested Laplace Approximation (INLA).
INLA allows us to apply models to spatial, temporal, or spatial-temporal
data.

In Chapters 8 through 16 we present a series of INLA examples. We start
by applying linear regression and mixed-effects models in INLA (Chapters
8 and 9), followed by GLM examples in Chapter 10. In Chapters 11 through
13 we show how to apply GLM models on spatial data. In Chapter 14 we
discuss time-series techniques and how to implement them in INLA.
Finally, in Chapters 15 and 16 we analyse spatial-temporal models in INLA.
