For over a decade, Glover and Mitchell have provided life-sciences students with an accessible, complete introduction to the use of statistics in their disciplines. The authors emphasize the relationships between probability, probability distributions, and hypothesis testing using both parametric and nonparametric analyses. Copious examples throughout the text apply concepts and theories to real questions faced by researchers in biology, environmental science, biochemistry, and health sciences. Dozens of examples and problems are new to the Third Edition, as are "Concept Checks" —short questions that allow readers to immediately gauge their mastery of the topics presented. Regardless of mathematical background, all readers will appreciate the value of statistics as a fundamental quantitative skill for the life sciences.

The authors have prepared a companion guide to using R, a free online statistical tool. The guide, as well as additional appendices and 300 additional problems to supplement the book, is available for download at no additional cost. Not-for-sale instructor resource material available to college and university faculty only; contact publisher directly.
