Summary
"This textbook, now in its second edition and with an accompanying CD provides the reader with the necessary information to handle numerical data and critically appraise the statistical methodology in the literature in the fields of veterinary and animal science. Written in a non-mathematical way with an emphasis on assimilating underlying concepts and correctly interpreting computer output, it contains numerous worked real examples to help the reader develop an understanding of the procedures. This book is specifically written for veterinary science and animal science students; researchers and practitioners for whom no other suitable text exists."--BOOK JACKET
