BIAD 12 Literature spring 2020
All literature needed for the course, mostly articles, will be provided by us on Canvas. We will be referring to three books, but it’s completely up to you to decide if you want to buy these books or not. You don’t have to buy any of the books to be able to pass the course.

The books are:
1. Dytham, C. (2011). Choosing and using statistics: a biologist’s guide. 3rd Edition. Blackwell Publishing, UK. 316 pages. ISBN: 9781405198394

2. Cargill, M & O’Connor, P. (2013). Writing scientific research articles: strategy and steps. 2nd Edition. Blackwell Publishing, UK. 236 pages. ISBN: 9781118570708

3. Zale, A.V., Parrish, D.L., Sutton, T.M. (2012). Fisheries techniques. 3rd Edition. Bethesda, Md: American Fisheries Society, 2012. 1009 pages. ISBN: 9781934874295

Books 1 and 2 can be found for < 500 SEK, also as pdf:s. Book 3 is more expensive and difficult to find, but can be bought from https://fisheries.org/bookstore/ as a hard copy or pdf. We have some copies of book 3 at KAU that you can borrow (difficult at the moment, I know). All books come in several editions, and any edition is OK to use.

BIAD 12 and Corona = Zoom
At the moment we are advised to conduct all teaching activities online, also for Campus students. So we plan for Zoom-activities only to begin with and hope for the situation to improve before the mandatory activities at KAU last week of April. For now there will be no changes for online (distans) students.

We"ll soon provide a detailed schedule and some recommended reading.
