Even though an understanding of experimental design and statistics is central to modern biology, undergraduate and graduate students studying biological subjects often lack confidence in their numerical abilities. Allaying the anxieties of students, Introduction to Statistics for Biology, Third Edition provides a painless introduction to the subject while demonstrating the importance of statistics in contemporary biological studies.

New to the Third Edition
  • More detailed explanation of the ideas of elementary probability to simplify the rationale behind hypothesis testing, before moving on to simple tests
  • An emphasis on experimental design and data simulation prior to performing an experiment
  • A general template for carrying out statistical tests from hypothesis to interpretation
  • Worked examples and updated Minitab analyses and graphics
  • A CD-ROM that contains a free trial version of Minitab

    Using Minitab throughout to present practical examples, the authors emphasize the interpretation of computer output. With its nontechnical approach and practical advice, this student-friendly introductory text lays the foundation for the advanced study of statistical analysis.
