This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value—this format costs significantly less than a new textbook.
Statistics for the Life Sciences, Fourth Edition, is the perfect book for introductory statistics classes, covering the key concepts of statistics as applied to the life sciences, while incorporating the tools and themes of modern data analysis. This text uses an abundance of real data in the exercises and examples to minimize computation, so that students can focus on the statistical concepts and issues, not the mathematics. Basic algebra is assumed as a prerequisite.
This latest edition is also available as an enhanced Pearson eText. This exciting new version features an embedded version of StatCrunch, allowing students to analyze data sets while reading the book.
For graduate or undergraduate courses in biology, agronomy, medical and health sciences, nutrition, pharmacy, animal science, physical education, forestry, and other life sciences.
