Asking and answering questions is the cornerstone of science yet formal training in understanding this key process is often overlooked. That is where this book comes in...
Asking Questions in Biology unpacks the 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. It then explains how to use statistical tests as tools to analyse data and answer those questions before, finally, showing the best practice in presenting scientific reports. As such it 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.
