This is a very user-friendly introduction to statistical methods for first-year undergraduate biology students. F. James Rohlf, in Quarterly Review of Biology, September 2010 Even from reading the first chapter only it is clear that the writer has put some thought into making the book entertaining to read. Oddly, it has worked! Her style of writing is casual, readable and humorous. This simple and 'easy to read' style makes the book inviting to use. The writer has achieved something I thought was impossible and made statistics interesting/appealing to study! Bethan Clifford, Student, University of Nottingham The presentation allows readers easily to access material which is relevant to their needs. Chapter 13, on presentation of data, provides an ideal conclusion to book. The Society of General Microbiology Biomeasurement is a well researched and planned book. The audience of the book is clearly identified and targeted by the material. The Society for General MicrobiologyFrom the Publisher:
Statistical analysis allows us to attach meaning to data which we have collected; it helps us to understand what results really mean, and to assess whether we can trust what experiments seem to be telling us. Yet, despite being a collection of the most valuable and important tools available to bioscientists, statistics is the aspect of study which most students fear more than any other. Biomeasurement offers a refreshing, student-focused introduction to the use of statistics in the study of the biosciences. With an emphasis on why statistical techniques are essential tools for bioscientists, the book removes the stigma attached to statistics by giving students the confidence to use and further explore the key techniques for themselves. The book starts by placing the role of data analysis in the context of wider scientific method, and introduces the student to the key terms and concepts which are common to all statistical tools. It then guides the student through descriptive statistics, and on to inferential statistics, explaining how and why each type of technique is used, and what each can tell us in order to better understand our data. The book goes on to present the key statistical tests, walking the student step-wise through the use of each, with carefully integrated examples, and plentiful opportunities for hands-on practice. The book closes with an overview of choosing the right test to suit your data, and tools for presenting data and their statistical analyses. Written by a talented educator, whose teaching has won praise from the UK's Quality and Assurance Agency for Higher Education, Biomeasurement is sure to engage even the most wary of students, demonstrating the power and importance of statistics throughout the study of bioscience.
