All students and researchers in environmental and biological sciences require statistical methods at some stage of their work. Many have a preconception that statistics are difficult and unpleasant and find that the textbooks available are difficult to understand.

Practical Statistics for Environmental and Biological Scientists provides a concise, user-friendly, non-technical introduction to statistics. The book covers planning and designing an experiment, how to analyse and present data, and the limitations and assumptions of each statistical method. The text does not refer to a specific computer package but descriptions of how to carry out the tests and interpret the results are based on the approaches used by most of the commonly used packages, e.g. Excel, MINITAB and SPSS. Formulae are kept to a minimum and relevant examples are included throughout the text.

From the Back Cover:

Practical Statistics for Environmental and Biological Scientists is a concise, user-friendly, non-technical introduction to statistics. Starting from basics, this book carefully introduces those statistical methods and techniques that all students and researchers need to know.

Written in an accessible style, the book divides into two parts. The first part covers statistical principles, how to plan and design experiments and surveys, and the presentation of data. The second part introduces a range of statistical tests and methods commonly used in environmental and biological sciences. The limitations and assumptions of each statistical method are clearly described along with numerous relevant examples for the applications of the techniques.

Practical Statistics for Environmental and Biological Scientists:

  • Is an accessible introduction to key statistical techniques used in the environmental and biological sciences.
  • Includes relevant examples throughout the text with references for further reading.
  • Illustrates concepts and methods and the presentation of data through numerous tables and figures.
  • Provides an appendix describing how many of the tests can be carried out using Excel and Minitab

Written for undergraduate students studying within the environmental and biological sciences. Researchers and professionals will also find this an invaluable reference.
