Scientific research is a proven and powerful tool for discovering the answers to biological questions and, as such, today's students need to be well-versed in experimental design, analysis, and the communication of research. As a resource which skillfully integrates all of the key aspects relating to biological research, Research Methods for the Biosciences is the perfect stand-alone guide for undergraduates.Students often struggle
to see the relevance of studying research methods. Research Methods for the Biosciences brings the subject to life through the use of examples taken from real undergraduate research. Furthermore, friendly
guidance and advice is provided throughout the text, and little prior knowledge or mathematical experience is required. Since statistics is a subject best learned through doing, frequent worked examples appear throughout Part Two, 'handling your data', showing step-by-step how to carry out the various statistical tests.
