9780131228115: Statistics for the Life Sciences (International Edition)

For graduate or undergraduate courses in biology, agronomy, medical and health sciences, nutrition, pharmacy, animal science, physical education, forestry, and other life sciences.

With a strong emphasis on real data, exploratory data analysis, interpretation of results, and checking assumptions, this text clearly conveys the key concepts of statistics as applied to life sciences while incorporating tools and themes of modern data analysis. The authors' goal is to help students understand concepts not memorize formulas; they make liberal use of exercises, worked examples, and graphical methods to do so.
