Statistical design is one of the fundamentals of our subject, being at the core of the growth of statistics during the previous century. In this book the basic theoretical underpinnings are covered. It describes the principles that drive good designs and good statistics.
Design played a key role in agricultural statistics and set down principles of good practice, principles that still apply today. Statistical design is all about understanding where the variance comes from, and making sure that is where the replication is. Indeed, it is probably correct to say that these principles are even more important today.
