The Virtual Rocky Shore
The Virtual Rocky Shore (VRS) is an interactive computer simulation allowing the design of manipulative experiments as would be conducted on a real rocky shore. The companion website explains experimental design from the basics, through to conducting an experiment using the simulation. Further guidance on the statistical analysis (using SPSS and R) is given, along with how to write up the experiment as if it was a real scientific paper. The full website is provided here, with an external link t

De Vany on Steroids, Baseball, and Evolutionary Fitness
Arthur De Vany, of the University of California, Irvine, and creator of Evolutionary Fitness, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about performance-enhancing drugs in baseball and Evolutionary Fitness, De Vany's ideas about diet and fitness. In the first part of the conversation, De Vany argues that there is little physiological or statistical evidence that steroid use increases home run totals in baseball. The second part of the conversation turns to De Vany's theories of diet and exercise. D

Statistics - an intuitive introduction : central tendency
Statistical data have a tendency to cluster around some central point. How do we determine this point? Is there just one way of doing it or more than one?

Radiolarian Micropalaeontology: Analysing Radiolarian Microfossil Data
Professor Simon Haslett discusses analysing radiolarian microfossil data. Radiolaria are marine single-celled organisms that possess a silica shell and are preserved in the fossil record. Radiolarian data can be analysed by individual species plots/graphs, or through numerical and statistical analysis of assemblage datasets. Such data can be used in stratigraphy to date layers of rock and sediment through geological time, and also to reconstruct past environments and establish palaeoclimate hist
