All students and researchers in environmental and biologicalsciences require statistical methods at some stage of their work.Many have a preconception that statistics are difficult andunpleasant and find that the textbooks available are difficult tounderstand. Practical Statistics for Environmental and BiologicalScientists provides a concise, user-friendly, non-technicalintroduction to statistics. The book covers planning and designingan experiment, how to analyse and present data, and the limitationsand assumptions of each statistical method. The text does not referto a specific computer package but descriptions of how to carry outthe tests and interpret the results are based on the approachesused by most of the commonly used packages, e.g. Excel, MINITAB andSPSS. Formulae are kept to a minimum and relevant examples areincluded throughout the text.

This is the first book to show the capabilities of Microsoft Excel to teach environmental sciences statistics effectively. It is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for students and practitioners who need to master Excel to solve practical environmental sciences problems. If understanding statistics isn’t your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you. Excel, a widely available computer program for students and managers, is also an effective teaching and learning tool for quantitative analyses in environmental science courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functions make learning statistics much easier than in years past. However, Excel 2010 for Environmental Sciences Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Problems is the first book to capitalize on these improvements by teaching students and managers how to apply Excel to statistical techniques necessary in their courses and work. Each chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the reader to use Excel commands to solve specific, easy-to-understand environmental science problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of each chapter with their solutions in an appendix. Separately, there is a full Practice Test (with answers in an Appendix) that allows readers to test what they have learned.

This reference overflows with an abundance of experimental techniques, simulation strategies, and practical applications useful in the control of pollutants generated by combustion processes in the metals, minerals, chemical, petrochemical, waste, incineration, paper, glass, and foods industries. The book assists engineers as they attempt to meet emerging environmental regulations and decrease combustion-induced pollutants in the modern industrial era. Brimming with more than 1300 references and 750 tables, figures, and illustrations, Industrial Combustion Pollution and Control reduces theory and provides a wide spectrum of schemes useful for system construction and planning.

In modern society, we are ever more aware of the environmental issues we face, whether these relate to global warming, depletion of rivers and oceans, despoliation of forests, pollution of land, poor air quality, environmental health issues, etc. At the most fundamental level it is necessary to monitor what is happening in the environment – collecting data to describe the changing scene. More importantly, it is crucial to formally describe the environment with sound and validated models, and to analyse and interpret the data we obtain in order to take action. Environmental Statistics provides a broad overview of the statistical methodology used in the study of the environment, written in an accessible style by a leading authority on the subject. It serves as both a textbook for students of environmental statistics, as well as a comprehensive source of reference for anyone working in statistical investigation of environmental issues. Provides broad coverage of the methodology used in the statistical investigation of environmental issues. Covers a wide range of key topics, including sampling, methods for extreme data, outliers and robustness, relationship models and methods, time series, spatial analysis, and environmental standards. Includes many detailed practical and worked examples that illustrate the applications of statistical methods in environmental issues. Authored by a leading authority on environmental statistics.

Practical Statistics for Field Biology

Provides an excellent introductory text for students on the principles and methods of statistical analysis in the life sciences, helping them choose and analyse statistical tests for their own problems and present their findings. An understanding of statistical principles and methods is essential for any scientist but is particularly important for those in the life sciences. The field biologist faces very particular problems and challenges with statistics as "real-life" situations such as collecting insects with a sweep net or counting seagulls on a cliff face can hardly be expected to be as reliable or controllable as a laboratory-based experiment. Acknowledging the peculiarites of field-based data and its interpretation, this book provides a superb introduction to statistical analysis helping students relate to their particular and often diverse data with confidence and ease. To enhance the usefulness of this book, the new edition incorporates the more advanced method of multivariate analysis, introducing the nature of multivariate problems and describing the the techniques of principal components analysis, cluster analysis and discriminant analysis which are all applied to biological examples. An appendix detailing the statistical computing packages available has also been included. It will be extremely useful to undergraduates studying ecology, biology, and earth and environmental sciences and of interest to postgraduates who are not familiar with the application of multiavirate techniques and practising field biologists working in these areas.

Many gross errors in applying statistical methods arise through not knowing when they work, or when the results are a nonsense, and through using methods that are not entirely appropriate to the problems being analysed. The most effective way of learning to use and appreciate statistical methods is through an applied approach. Clarke's popular textbook provides a non-mathematical account of all the statistical methods commonly used by students and researchers in the biological sciences. It describes the methods, their uses and the interpretation of results and in addition, presents the ideas behind, and the limitations of, standard statistical procedure. The text acknowledges the importance of computers in the analysis of data and gives students advice on the use of MINITAB in statistical work and the use of computer graphics to illustrate reports.
