## Fitting Models to Biological Data Using Linear and Nonlinear Regression: A Practical Guide to Curve FittingMost biologists use nonlinear regression more than any other statistical technique, but there are very few places to learn about curve-fitting. This book, by the author of the very successful Intuitive Biostatistics, addresses this relatively focused need of an extraordinarily broad range of scientists. |
