Asking Questions in Biology is all about scientific discovery. Biology students must be able to analyse data and produce high quality reports, but before this they need to work out exactly what it is they are trying to discover. Asking Questions in Biology begins with the often overlooked (yet crucial) skill of asking the right question, in the right way. It then moves on to present the tools and techniques required to gather data, analyse this data and finally to present this data (either orally or in a formal report).

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.
