Abstract

Biomeasurement provides an introduction to the use of statistics in the biosciences, emphasizing why statistical tools are essential tools for bioscientists. It begins by placing data analysis in the context of the wider scientific method and introducing key statistical concepts. It discusses inferring and estimating before showing how to choose the right test and graph and introducing null hypothesis significance testing. The following chapters focus on a variety of test types, including tests of difference and tests of relationship, such as regression and correlation. The book then introduces the generalized linear model, including logistic and loglinear models.
