This textbook takes a unique approach to explaining and demonstrating how to use and interpret statistics for the physiological, medical, and life sciences. The first third of the book presents an integrated overview and introduction to experimental design and statistical inference. The restof the book provides an extensively cross-referenced set of 100 brief critiques of sample case studies embodying all the most common statistical errors or design problems found in the biological literature. These specific cases are effective for teaching the principles of biostatistics. The examplesare drawn primarily from biomedicine, yet the book is also valuable to psychologists, social scientists, environmental scientists, ecologists, and any discipline employing statistics.
James F. Zolman is at University of Kentucky College of Medicine, Lexington.

Editorial Reviews

"Here is a book for experimental biologists who design and interpret their own experiments as well as critically evaluate articles and papers in their field....Has some good features. There is much to be learned from the research design problems....The figures, tables, and flow charts in thefirst part of the book are helpful and great for reference....The intended audience of experimental biologists will gain much from this book." --Journal of the American Statistical Association
