Editorial Reviews

Papers presented at the Symposium on Biostatistics held at McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada, represent many areas of Dunnett's contributions, and, in combining the topics of multiple comparison methods and selection procedures, serve as impetus for further work defining their affinities. Topics of the 32 contributions encompass both theoretical and practical concerns and are unified by the quest which motivates Dunnett's work--developing methods for better understanding of data.
