Models will be evaluated based on "in-sample" statistics, such as the Bayesian p-value (Gelman and Hill, ) and on predictive performance on "out-of-sample" independent validation data. The book will be a valuable resource for graduate students incorporating landscape ecology and/or species modeling in their degree programs.
