Statistics for Environmental Biology and Toxicology presents and illustrates statistical methods appropriate for the analysis of environmental data obtained in biological or toxicological experiments. Beginning with basic probability and statistical inferences, this text progresses through non-linear and generalized linear models, trend testing, time-to-event data and analysis of cross-classified tabular and categorical data. For the more complex analyses, extensive examples including SAS and S-PLUS programming code are provided to assist the reader when implementing the methods in practice.Cl When it is unreasonable to assume a normal parent distribution for the observations, it is possible to conduct a distribution-free trend test. Given by Shirley (1977), the test is essentially a rank-based version of Williamsa#39; test, modified to takeanbsp;...
