The statistical analysis of several related variables simultaneously, whilst sometimes not met with in introductory courses in statistics, is essential in a wide range of disciplines. The first edition of bryan Manly's little blue book has therefore become a vade mecum for students who have previously taken a standard introductory course of statistical methods. This new edition has retained all of Professor Manly's crystal clear style, based on a course that has been taught successfully at the University of Otago for a number of years. It has increased coverage on measuring distances between cases based on presence-absence data, a new section on logistic regression, new exercises and two completely new chapters on graphical methods and ordination. The author has taken into account the major shift in the way in which computer software is used. But of course its not how to run software that is important; it's an understanding of the underlying statistical principles which are crucial, which this book supplies with the simplest and most concise account. This book should be of interest to introductory courses in statistics for biologists and general scientists.
