Statistical analysis is increasingly being recognized as a fundamental quantitative skill for all biology students to master. This accessible text provides the necessary foundation for them to do just that. Glover and Mitchell emphasize the application of statistics using examples from many areas of the life sciences, but without sacrificing theoretical rigor. Along with standard parametric analyses, many examples of nonparametric analysis are incorporated to better simulate the situations that undergraduates encounter in their own research projects and to accommodate those readers with more modest backgrounds in mathematics. A large number of end-of-chapter problems provide ample opportunities to apply the concepts presented in the text.

Designed to provide a nonmathematical introduction to biostatistics for medical and health science students, graduate students in the biological sciences, physicians, and researchers, this text explains statistical principles in non-technical language and focuses on explaining the proper scientific interpretation of statistical tests rather than on the mathematical logic of the tests themselves. Intuitive Biostatistics covers all the topics typically found in an introductory statistics text, but with the emphasis on confidence intervals rather than P values, making it easier for students to understand both. Additionally, it introduces a broad range of topics left out of most other introductory texts but used frequently in biomedical publications, including survival curves. multiple comparisons, sensitivity and specificity of lab tests, Bayesian thinking, lod scores, and logistic, proportional hazards and nonlinear regression. By emphasizing interpretation rather than calculation, this text provides a clear and virtually painless introduction to statistical principles for those students who will need to use statistics constantly in their work. In addition, its practical approach enables readers to understand the statistical results published in biological and medical journals.
