This book takes the standard methods as the starting point, and then describes a wide range of relatively new approaches and procedures designed to deal with more complicated data and experiments - including much recent research in the area. Throughout mention is given to the computing requirements - facilities available in large computing packages like BMDP, SAS and SPSS are also described.
"This book is a welcome addition to the analysis of dose-response quantal bioassays which are so important in toxicology and pharmacology…it contdains the best collection and description of all known methods in bioassays."
-Short Book Reviews of the ISI
"…a thorough and readable reference…"
"I believe that this book should be in the library of all applied statisticians…an excellent reference. It serves as a model for books on statistical methods in special areas and is a worthy successor to Finney's work, which has dominated the field for so long."
