About this book

Many biologists remain unfamiliar with statistical analysis and modelling, yet need to apply these techniques increasingly in their research. This volume describes how to analyse biological data, with commonly available software packages. Many examples of computer commands and output are given to illustrate the different analytical approaches. Available in two formats - paperback edition, or spiral-bound edition which includes a PC disk.

"Such a diversity of topics is unusual in a textbook on data analysis. The book is valuable because it provides, in one place, data analysis oriented toward biologists, synthesizing a wide variety of essential methods. . . . concise and clear. . . . the book is worth having and . . . it would be a valuable teaching and research tool." --Mark Burgman (University of Melbourne, Australia), The Quarterly Review of Biology
