Opis produktu

George Estabrook is a Professor of Botany in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. He is interested in the application of mathematics and computing to biology and has taught graduate courses on the subject for more than 30 years.This book teaches powerful methods to test hypotheses using statistical arguments without the constraints and sophisticated mathematics of classical statistics.Ideal for researchers who want to take control of their own statistical arguments this book teaches powerful computational methods to test hypotheses without the constraints and sophisticated mathematics of classical statistics. Examples of spreadsheet macros and real world applications are provided throughout to illustrate the concepts and techniques described.Ideal for researchers who want to take control of their own statistical arguments this book teaches powerful computational methods to test hypotheses without the constraints and sophisticated mathematics of classical statistics. Examples of spreadsheet macros and real world applications are provided throughout to illustrate the concepts and techniques described.Scientists need statistics. Increasingly this is accomplished using computational approaches. Freeing readers from the constraints mysterious formulas and sophisticated mathematics of classical statistics this book is ideal for researchers who want to take control of their own statistical arguments. It demonstrates how to use spreadsheet macros to calculate the probability distribution predicted for any statistic by any hypothesis. This enables readers to use anything that can be calculated (or observed) from their data as a test statistic and hypothesize any probabilistic mechanism that can generate data sets similar in structure to the one observed. A wide range of natural examples drawn from ecology evolution anthropology palaeontology and related fields give valuable insights into the application of the described techniques while complete example macros and useful procedures demonstrate the methods in action and provide starting points for readers to use or modify in their own research.Acknowledgements: 1.
