This course is designed to introduce students to research approaches and statistical methods that are commonly used by environmental scientists and field/lab biologists. A wide variety of research designs (e. g., completely randomized, randomized block, continuous, tabular), descriptive statistics (central tendency, variability, distribution), and parametric and nonparametric hypothesis tests (chi-square, contingency table, paired sample, unpaired sample, multiple sample, correlation, regression) are examined. Students collect, analyze and interpret their own data, and real examples from the literature are discussed. Proficiency in preparing and interpreting scientific graphs is also emphasized. ENSC 345 / BIOL 354 Research Design and Statistics is a required course for the Environmental Science major, and it can be used to fulfill one of the math requirements for the Biology major or as an elective for the Biology major/minor and the Environmental Science minor. This course is cross listed with BIOL354.
