With an emphasis on why statistical techniques are essential tools for bioscientists, the book removes the stigma attached to statistics by providing the means to use and further explore the key techniques in the field independently. 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 covers descriptive statistics and inferential statistics, explaining how and why each type of technique is used, and how each can help interpret data. The book goes on to present nine key statistical tests and discuss which test to apply in different situations.
