Practical Statistics for Field Biology

Practical Statistics for Field Biology Lowest new price: $31.52
Lowest used price: $6.66
List price: $61.00
Author: Jim Fowler
Brand: Jim Fowler

Provides an excellent introductory text for students on the principles and methods of statistical analysis in the life sciences, helping them choose and analyse statistical tests for their own problems and present their findings.

An understanding of statistical principles and methods is essential for any scientist but is particularly important for those in the life sciences. The field biologist faces very particular problems and challenges with statistics as "real-life" situations such as collecting insects with a sweep net or counting seagulls on a cliff face can hardly be expected to be as reliable or controllable as a laboratory-based experiment. Acknowledging the peculiarites of field-based data and its interpretation, this book provides a superb introduction to statistical analysis helping students relate to their particular and often diverse data with confidence and ease.

To enhance the usefulness of this book, the new edition incorporates the more advanced method of multivariate analysis, introducing the nature of multivariate problems and describing the the techniques of principal components analysis, cluster analysis and discriminant analysis which are all applied to biological examples. An appendix detailing the statistical computing packages available has also been included.

It will be extremely useful to undergraduates studying ecology, biology, and earth and environmental sciences and of interest to postgraduates who are not familiar with the application of multiavirate techniques and practising field biologists working in these areas.

SPSS Explained

SPSS Explained Lowest new price: $50.00
Lowest used price: $1.98
List price: $53.95
Author: Perry R. Hinton

SPSS Explained provides the student with all that they need to undertake statistical analysis using SPSS, guiding the student from the basic rationale behind the statistics, through detailed explanations of the procedures, and finally to all aspects of the SPSS output.

The SPSS output is explained in a unique way: for each part of the output the explanation is divided into both an essentials section and an advanced section. The essentials section covers the basics that the student will need to write up statistics for a research report. The advanced section provides the more advanced student with an explanation for every part of the output to help with further understanding of the statistics.

SPSS Explained is supported by Perry Hinton's highly successful textbook Statistics Explained which outlines all the major statistical tests used by undergraduates in psychology and the social sciences. Both books will be warmly welcomed by students at all levels, and by the lecturers who teach them.

The authors collectively have many years' experience of teaching statistics to undergraduates in the social sciences. They all have current teaching expertise and deal with student SPSS questions on a daily basis.

It is used widely for training public health and environment professionals, undergraduate medical students, and students in other health professions.

The second edition provides updated examples of how and why the basics of
epidemiology are essential to anyone who is required to understand and apply the principles of disease causation and prevention. The book has a particular emphasis on modifiable environmental factors and encourages the application of epidemiology to the prevention of disease and the promotion of health, including environmental and occupational health. It prepares members of the health-related professions to respond to the need for health services to address all aspects of the health of populations, and to ensure that health resources are used to the best possible effect. It shows how good clinical practice is informed by clinical epidemiology; and its lively, concise style is designed to stimulate a continuing interest in the subject.

This edition includes comprehensive chapters on the nature and uses of epidemiology; the epidemiological approach to defining and measuring the occurrence of health-related states in populations; the strengths and limitations of epidemiological study; designs, causation; the contribution of epidemiology to the prevention of disease; the promotion of health and the development of health policy; and the role of epidemiology in evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of health care.

It enables students to describe the common causes of death, disease and disability in her or his community; outline appropriate study designs to answer specific questions concerning disease causation, natural history, prognosis prevention and the evaluation of therapy and other interventions to control disease and critically evaluate the literature.

How can social scientists assess the reliability of the measures derived from tests and questionnaires? Through an illustrative review of the principles of classical reliability theory, Ross E Traub explores some general strategies for improving measurement procedures.

Beginning with a presentation of random variables and the expected value of a random variable, the book covers such topics as: the definition of reliability as a coefficient and possible uses of a coefficient; the notion of parallel tests so as to make possible the estimation of a reliability coefficient for a set of measurements; what to do when parallel tests are not available; what factors affect the reliability coefficient; and how to estimate the
