Simple Data Analysis for Biologists

Publisher: WorldFish Center and the Fisheries Administration
This document was originally developed as lecture notes for hydrobiologists of the World Health Organization's Onchocerciasis Control Program in West Africa. Notes were substantially expanded during the World Fish/ADB project "Capacity building of the Inland Fisheries Research and Development Institute" in Cambodia. Feedback and demand from trainees contributed to reshaping the notes in order to better meet the needs of young fish biologists working in tropical countries. This was the main impetus for developing an additional section on statistical tests and highlights the diffuse but essential contribution of multiple members of the Cambodian Fisheries Administration to this document. This input was supplemented by that of trainees from Cantho University (Vietnam) in 2006, 2007, and 2008.
