About this book

Asking and answering questions is the cornerstone of science, yet formal training in understanding this key process is often overlooked.

Asking Questions in Biology unpacks this crucial process of enquiry, from a biological perspective, at its various stages. It begins with an overview of scientific question-asking in general, before moving on to demonstrate how to derive hypotheses from unstructured observations. In the main sections of the book, it then explains how to use statistical tests as tools to analyse data and answer the questions, before finally showing the best practice in presenting scientific reports.

This edition has been revised, reorganised and updated throughout with additional coverage of topics such as extracting information from the scientific literature. Throughout, examples are shown using R, by far the most important statistical tool available for the modern student.

Asking Questions in Biology is an indispensable companion to all students of biology, but particularly those enrolled in courses concerning experimental design, data analysis, hypothesis testing, research methods, or any practical project work.

If you've been spoon fed pre-prepared protocols for all your practical classes, this is a great antidote, thoroughly and carefully explaining how to progress from having a little science-y think in the bath to actually carrying out an experiment to test your ideas. It demands that you justify not only your methods but also your rationale, something even professional scientists can take for granted. - Karen Dawe, Faculty of 1000
