“In this monograph, the authors present the work of a 4-year initiative undertaken in the United States and discuss several previously unpublished results and applications of composite sampling in environmental studies. … the theory presented is sufficient to understand the formal analytical approaches and the solutions presented. The text … is well worth reading. … will appeal to those practitioners needing to balance the desire for statistical rigour in sampling design with the constraints of ever decreasing financial budgets with which to undertake such sampling.” (Carl M. O’Brien, International Statistical Review, Vol. 80 (1), 2012)
