Last year I published a paper with my friend Johan on the evils of log transformations in the analysis of count data. We went for the subtle title “Do not log-transform count data“. Now, I was aware that this wasn’t the only statistical sin perpetrated by ecologists (and other scientists), and there’s quite a seam to be mined if only you know a bit more than non-specialists.
Evidently, Dave Warton has decided to mine the same seam. And how can you resist this title for his new paper?
If I had it on, I’d take my hat off to salute him.
