Overview

Experiments in ecology require careful planning to produce data that can be used correctly in statistical tests. Analysis of variance is an important set of tests which allow attention to be focussed on details of experimental design, such as the effect of different fertilizer treatments. This book introduces the need for a logical structure to experiments, describes procedures and explains the problems. All ecologists involved in fieldwork as advanced students or researchers will find this practical approach to statistics of great value.
