Meta-analysis in ecology and evolutionary biology

29 Juin 2011,

Publié par JMB

Meta-analysis represents a set of statistical methods for quantitative research synthesis developed in medicine and social sciences in late 1970s and introduced to ecology in early 1990s. It provides a more objective and informative alternative to narrative reviews and "vote-counting" approaches traditionally used for research synthesis in ecology.

The aims of this working group are to facilitate and to promote the thoughtful and critical use of meta-analysis for research synthesis in ecology, and to improve the power and rigour of ecological meta-analysis.
