Statistical methods, experimental design, and scientific inference by Ronald Aylmer Fisher( Book )

38 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.A. Fisher has had more influence on the development of statistical theory and practice than any other twentieth-century statistician. His writings (both in paper and book form) have proved to be as relevant to present-day statisticians as they were when first published. This book brings together as a single volume three of Fisher's most influential textbooks: Statistical Methods for Research Workers, The Design of Experiments, and Statistical Methods and Scientific Inference . In this new edition Frank Yates has provided a foreword which sheds fresh light on Fisher's thinking and on the writing and reception of each of the books. He discusses some of the key issues tackled in the three books and reflects on how the ideas expressed have come to permeate modern statistical practice

Experiments in plant hybridisation by Gregor Mendel( Book )

13 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential and important scientific works ever written, the 1865 paper "Experiments in Plant Hybridisation" was all but ignored in its day, and its author, Austrian priest and scientist Gregor Johann Mendel (1822-1884), died before seeing the dramatic long-term impact of his work, which was rediscovered at the turn of the 20th century and is now considered foundational to modern genetics. A simple, eloquent description of his 1856-1863 study of the inheritance of traits in pea plants-Mendel analyzed 29,000 of them-this is essential reading for biology students and readers of science history. Cosimo presents this compact edition from the 1909 translation by British geneticist William Bateson (1861-1926) -- Back cover
