9781584881872: Statistical Methods in Agriculture and Experimental Biology, Third Edition (Texts in Statistical Science)

The third edition of this popular introductory text maintains the character that won worldwide respect for its predecessors but features a number of enhancements that broaden its scope, increase its utility, and bring the treatment thoroughly up to date. It provides complete coverage of the statistical ideas and methods essential to students in agriculture or experimental biology. In addition to covering fundamental methodology, this treatment also includes more advanced topics that the authors believe help develop an appreciation of the breadth of statistical methodology now available. The emphasis is not on mathematical detail, but on ensuring students understand why and when various methods should be used.
New in the Third Edition:

  • A chapter on the two simplest yet most important methods of multivariate analysis
  • Increased emphasis on modern computer applications
  • Discussions on a wider range of data types and the graphical display of data
  • Analysis of mixed cropping experiments and on-farm experiments
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    Review:

    "The book is written in a concise and engaging style. The equations and formulas are well explained. This is one of the most readable statistics books in this area that we have seen. It focuses on issues of importance to researchers in the life sciences, and presents the methods motivated by practical considerations. The topics covered by the book are comprehensive enough for use as a text for M.S and PhD students in the agricultural sciences. It is not easy to find a book which earns a stamp of approval from both a statistician and a research agronomist, but this book has done just that. We have found that this book is well-written and will be useful as a textbook for students and a key starting reference for professionals in many areas of agricultural and biological research." -The American Statistician, 2003 Praise for the previous editions: "this book is outstandingly well doneThis is the Concise Oxford Dictionary of biological statistics-a four-square, middleweight companion which greatly deserves a wide circulation." Roderick Hunt, Journal of Applied Ecology, Vol. 21 "Well-organized...The crisp style of presentation distinguishes the book from other texts...I recommend it highly as a reference handbook for use by biology students and a convenient source for statistical practitioners...the book has the broadest coverage of relevant topics among applied texts at this level...the authors s are obviously well-acquainted with their business and communicate their ideas clearly and succinctly." - Journal of the American Statistical Society "This is a good introductory book, by authors who understand the limitations and statistical requirements of agriculturists and biologists." --R. M.Gatenby, Animal Breeding Abstracts
