Bayesian hierarchical models in statistical ecology
Pages 40

The Salmon life cycle and the biomass production model exemplify the key idea of this book: Hierarchical Bayesian Modeling (HBM) is a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) modeling technique with the capacity to cope with high-dimensional complex models typically needed for ecological inferences and predictions ([64]; [65]; [67]; [75]; [313]).
