For introductory undergraduate or graduate courses in statistics aimed at life science majors. Bringing Statistics to Life The Fifth Edition of Statistics for the Life Sciences uses authentic examples and exercises from a wide variety of life science domains to give statistical concepts personal relevance, enabling students to connect concepts with situations they will encounter outside the classroom. The emphasis on understanding ideas rather than memorizing formulas makes the text ideal for students studying a variety of scientific fields: animal science, agronomy, biology, forestry, health, medicine, nutrition, pharmacy, physical education, zoology and more. In the fifth edition, randomization tests have been moved to the fore to motivate the inference procedures introduced in the text. There are no prerequisites for the text except elementary algebra.UNIT I: DATA AND DISTRIBUTIONS 1. Introduction 1.1 Statistics and the Life Sciences 1.2 Types of Evidence 1.3 Random Sampling 2.
