Introductory probability and statistics: applications for forestry and natural sciences.

Book cover for Introductory probability and statistics: applications for forestry and natural sciences.

Description

This book with 15 chapters utilizes basic descriptive statistics and probability, as well as commonly used statistical inferential tools to introduce topics that are commonplace in a forestry context such as hypothesis texting, design of experiments, sampling methods, non-parametric tests and statistical quality control. It also contains examples and exercises drawn from the fields of forestry, wood science, and conservation.
