About this book

Designed to cover techniques for analysis of data in the animal sciences, this textbook provides an overview of the basic principles of statistics enabling the subsequent applications to be carried out with familiarity and understanding, followed by more complex applications and detailed procedures commonly used in animal sciences. Each chapter begins by introducing a problem with practical questions, followed by a brief theoretical background, and is supplemented with an abundance of examples in SAS from animal sciences and related fields.

'This book is an excellent text and should be on every animal scientist's bookshelf. It is easy to read and well formatted throughout with numerous easy to follow examples from various disciplines in animal science.' Terry A Gipson, Small Ruminant Research, 57, 2005 'This is likely to prove a useful text for the serious researcher. Its practical guidance on performing the analyses in SAS makes it a handbook for routine situations.' Nick Fieller, Laboratory Animals, 39, 2005
