Providing clear examples of the use of state-of-the-art computer programs for analyses of bioassay data, this second edition explains the statistical basis and analysis for each kind of quantal response bioassay. The first edition was a must-have reference for designing, conducting, and interpreting bioassays: this completely revised and updated second edition is positioned to take its place. The authors delineate methods and ideas that are nearly impossible to explain clearly to those who do not already know both. They lead readers through the methods and concepts so easily, they suddenly find themselves processing information they did not think you could understand, and were convinced they never would.
