Summary

"Statistical analysis is increasingly being recognized as a fundamental quantitative skill for all biology students to master. This accessible text provides the necessary foundation for them to do just that. Glover and Mitchell emphasize the application of statistics using examples from many areas of the life sciences, but without sacrificing theoretical rigor. Along with standard parametric analyses, many examples of nonparametric analysis are incorporated to better simulate the situations that undergraduates encounter in their own research projects and to accommodate those readers with more modest backgrounds in mathematics. A large number of end-of-chapter problems provide ample opportunities to apply the concepts presented in the text."--BOOK JACKET.
