Ben, your plug is welcome. There is a hole to be filled in this area, and I'm looking forward to checking your plug for shape and size!

A question or two: I notice that one can get the whole book in one shot from

  http://www.zoo.ufl.edu/bolker/emdbook/book.pdf

rather than piece by piece from the individual chapter links (though the revision status may differ). But must one also get the Exercises, R code, Data and Scripts separately?

And/or can one use wget for it all?

Thanks, Ben, and best wishes for its future! Ted.
