His goal is to split the difference between textbooks that load on the technical matters on the assumption that an instructor will be on hand, and popular accounts that avoid mathematics and any other dimension that might frighten general readers.
The project follows a bottom-up approach from experimental assessments of the uptake of single cells attached to rotifers to the statistical inference on the effects of rotifer and bacterial communities.

Though probability is fascinating in its own right, says Meyer, as she introduces it, she keeps always in mind the statistician's point of view, which sees probability as a tool for building models to do statistical inference. Her topics include discrete random variables and expected values, moments and the moment-generating function, jointly continuously distributed random variables, hypothesis tests for a normal population parameter, quantifying uncertainty: standard error and confidence intervals, and information and maximum likelihood estimation.
