Practical Statistics for the Biological Sciences is a handbook of statistical methods for use by workers in the biological sciences at all levels from undergraduate to post-doctoral researcher.
The book presents, in a clear and compact form, the most common statistical tests used in the biosciences. It provides a series of flow charts to help in selecting the appropriate test. Each test is described concisely and illustrated by worked examples.
The text is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing both Windows and Apple Macintosh versions of PractiStat, a new programme for statistical analysis. PractiStat can be used both as a teaching aid to work through the examples provided and as a valuable, easy to use tool for analysis of the users' own data. The programme provides a simple, intuitive interface and permits the application of the common statistical tests and procedures used by bioscientists.
