Gaston, K.J. (2006) ‘Biodiversity and extinction: Macroecological patterns and people’, Progress in Physical Geography, 30 (2): 258–69.

This demonstrates that statistical methods are routine in that area of geography (biogeography), and that a basic understanding of data presentation is important for understanding the literature; it also includes discussion of species-area relationships, which are used as an example through this chapter.

Song, C., Dannenberg, M.P. and Hwang, T. (2013) ‘Optical remote sensing of terrestrial ecosystem primary productivity’, Progress in Physical Geography, 37 (6): 834–54.

Elwood, S. (2011) ‘Geographic Information Science: Visualization, visual methods, and the Geoweb’, Progress in Human Geography, 35 (3): 401–8.
