Abstract: This remarkably engaging textbook is the perfect learning resource for undergraduate and postgraduate biology students studying statistics and data analysis. Part of the best-selling Moore family of statistics books, it covers essential statistical topics with examples and exercises drawn from across the field of life sciences, including disciplines such as nursing, public health, and allied health. Based on David Moore's classic The Basic Practice of Statistics, this textbook applies the bestseller's signature emphasis on statistical thinking, real data and what statisticians actually do, to the world of life sciences, helping engage students and underlining how statistics can directly apply to the projects they're working on. The new edition includes new and updated exercises, examples, and samples of real data, as well as an expanded range of media tools for students and instructors. This textbook is also available on LaunchPad.
