PRACTICAL STATISTICS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL AND BIOLOGICAL SCIENTISTS
by John Townend
2002, 276 pages. Many students and researchers have a preconception that statistics are difficult, unpleasant, and find that available textbooks are difficult to understand. This book provides a concise, user-friendly, non-technical introduction to statistics. It covers planning and designing an experiment, how to analyze and present data, and the limitations and assumptions of each statistical method. The text does not refer to a specific computer package but descriptions of how to carry out the tests and interpret the results are based on the approaches used by many of the commonly used packages, e.g. Excel, MINITAB and SPSS. Formulas are kept to a minimum and relevant examples are included throughout the text. Hardcover; 6-3/4 x 9-1/2″.
