Abstract

Does your data have repeated measurements; is it nested (hierarchical)? Is it sampled at multiple locations or sampled repeatedly over time? Or is your response variable heterogeneous? Welcome to our world, the world of mixed effects modelling. The bad news is that it is a complicated world. Nonetheless, it is one that few ecologists can avoid, even though it is one of the most difficult fields in statistics. Many textbooks describe mixed effects modelling and extensions, but most are highly mathematical, and few focus on ecology.
