Prerequisites: ENV 505, completion of 15 credits of required courses in the ENV program and at least a 3.0 grade point average, or permission of the instructor. (3 credits)
The course introduces the concepts and computational techniques of analysis of variance
(ANOVA), analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), multiple linear regression, logistic regression
and nonparametric multivariate analysis. The ability to critically evaluate the scientific merit of research proposals in environmental biology will be developed through peer review exercises.
Individual research proposals will be developed as the term project.
