Power Analysis: An Introduction for the Life Sciences

By Nick Colegrave and Graeme D. Ruxton


Written primarily for mid-to-upper level undergraduates, this introduction to power analysis in a biological context offers a clear, conceptual understanding of the factors that influence statistical power, and emphasises the importance of high power in experiments. It also explains how to improve the power of an experiment and offers guidance on how to present the outcomes of power analyses to justify experimental design decisions.
