This handbook provides an overview of principles and methods for approaches to experimentation and data analysis for adaptive management studies. Topics include design of experiments, non-experimental studies, retrospective studies, measurement and estimates, errors of inference, Bayesian statistics, and decision analysis. The handbook is targeted at resource managers, researchers, and biometricians.
