About this book


Statistical methods are becoming more important in all biological fields of study. Biometry deals with the application of mathematical techniques to the quantitative study of varying characteristics of organisms, populations, species, etc. This book uses examples based on genuine data carefully chosen by the author for their special biological significance. The chapters cover a broad spectrum of topics and bridge the gap between introductory biological statistics and advanced approaches such as multivariate techniques and nonlinear models. A set of statistical tables most frequently used in biometry completes the book.
