Analysis of Biological Data

Teaching resources




Roberts & Co. site



The second edition of Whitlock and Schluter is now out, and we have a new web-site, which includes all the data for the 2nd edition and pages with example R code showing how to do all the analyses in the examples of the book.


This site provides additional resources to support classes teaching from The Analysis of Biological Data, by Michael Whitlock and Dolph Schluter.

This book provides an introduction to the use of modern statistical techniques for analyzing biological data, aimed at introductory and intermediate classes of biology students. The book uses hundreds of real, interesting biological examples to demonstrate these techniques.

More background on the book and its purposes can be found at the web site of Macmillan Learning .
