Book News Annotation:

Ireland (Writtle College, Essex) introduces correct experimental design and appropriate methods of statistical analysis that will allow valid and acceptable conclusions to be drawn from the results of experiments. He concentrates on students of agriculture and horticulture, but the material should be appropriate for students of any life science who have never used statistics before. After reading the book, he says, students should be able to plan an experiment that will provide valid data that can be meaningfully analyzed, identify an appropriate statistical technique, appreciate the assumptions and limitations of the chosen method of data analysis, and produce valid interpretation of the data analysis. They should also be able to tell when they need more advanced statistics that they got here. Examples are worked out using two popular software packages. Dist. in U.S. by Stylus Publishing.

Synopsis:

Providing practical training supported by a sound theoretical basis, this textbook introduces students to the principals of investigation by experiment and the role of statistics in analysis. It draws on the author's extensive teaching experience and is illustrated with fully worked contextualized examples throughout, helping the reader to correctly design their own experiments and identify the most appropriate technique for analysis. Subjects covered include sampling and determining sample reliability, hypothesis testing, relationships between variables, the role and use of computer packages such as Microsoft Excel, Toolpak and Genstat, and more complex experimental designs such as randomized blocks and split plots.
