Vital statistics

argylesock says… I like this post. And I want to add something to the list of responses that people give when you mention statistics. When I say that I love doing stats, nearly everybody calls me ‘weird’ and announces that they’ve ‘never been any good at sums.’ That might bother me less if it weren’t for the fact that I’m an academic biologist. Science has numbers in it! I’ll post this to the ‘Statistics’ category of my science blog, and I’ll get moving again on writing about this wonderful topic.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
