Summary: In Volume II we apply zero-inflated models and generalised 
additive (mixed-effects) models to spatial and spatial-temporal data. 
Data and all R code is available.


In Chapter 18 we will explain how to deal with zero-inflated data. We 
introduce so-called zero-inflated Poisson (ZIP) models, zero-inflated 
negative binomial (ZINB) models, zero-altered Poisson (ZAP) models and 
zero-altered negative binomial (ZINB) models.

In Chapter 19 we extend the ZIP, ZINB, ZAP and ZANB models with spatial 
correlation. Both these chapters use a skate data set from South 
America. In the appendix accompanying Chapter 19 we also explain how to 
manipulate maps and create spatial polygons (e.g. for coastlines).

In Chapter 20 we revisit a data set with which we have been battling 
since 2006. It is about begging behaviour of owl nestlings. In Zuur 
(2009a) we applied linear mixed-effects models on it, and in Zuur et al. 
(2012a) we analysed it with a zero-inflated GLMM. Thanks to R-INLA we 
finally cracked this data set and apply a zero-inflated GAMM.

In Chapter 21 we analyse sandeel count data. This work came out of a 
consultancy project that we carried out for Wageningen Marine Research 
(The Netherlands) in 2017. Although the setup of the experiment is 
simple (approximately 400 sites sampled once per year, for 4 years), 
analysing these data and writing this chapter took about 30 days. This 
should give you an idea about the complexity of the statistical tools 
(zero-inflated GAMMs + spatial-temporal correlation) that we discuss in 
this book.

Chapter 22 is about zero-inflated bird densities sampled in the Labrador 
Sea, located between the Labrador Peninsula (Eastern Canada) and 
Greenland. This chapter is about the analysis of zero-inflated 
continuous data with spatial correlation. A zero-altered gamma model 
with spatial correlation is used.

In Chapter 23 we analyse coral reef data sampled around an island. A lot 
of misery comes together in this chapter: smoothers, zero-inflation and 
spatial dependency that should not cross land as benthic species that 
live in a coral reef do not walk over land! We will discuss barrier 
models (Bakka et al. 2018) which ensure that spatial correlation seeps 
around a barrier (in this case an island).

Up to Chapter 23 all data sets analysed were geostatistical data and not 
areal or lattice data. The reason for this is that most ecological data 
is geostatistical. In Chapter 24 we analyse aggregated tornado data in 
102 counties in Illinois. This is areal data. We will use various CAR 
models (e.g. iCAR, BYM, BYM2) for zero-inflated spatial and 
spatial-temporal correlated data.
