Description

A good working knowledge of statistical principles is needed for both the design and analysis of biological experiments and the subsequent handling of the large amounts of data generated if worthwhile, reliable conclusions are to be reached.

Practical Statistics for Experimental Biologists, Second Edition provides biologists with a user-friendly, non-technical introduction to the basics of statistics. The book has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate:

  • Worked examples and printouts from MINITAB
  • Relevant case studies and applications
  • Further Notes section for background explanations

Written by a biologist with extensive experience of applying statistical procedures to experimental systems, this book will be invaluable to undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, botany, zoology, physiology, pharmacology and pharmacy.
