Analysis of Variance One-Way (1-Way ANOVA) - parametric, comparison, 3,4,5-group Example: Problem Set A

A marine biologist in charge of four marine reserves located on a small island noticed that one of the marine reserves (Area ‘A’) was twice the size of the other areas (‘B’, ‘C’, and ‘D’). Considering that all other aspects of the marine reserves were equal except for size, the biologist wanted to find out if the size of the marine reserve had an effect on the overall size of fish species living within them. To test this, he designated a single fish species Acanthurus olivaceous as the test species, and collected 10 specimens of this fish in each of the four marine reserves. He measured each fish (in cm) and tabulated the data below. 78 88 87 88 83 82 81 80 80 89 78 78 83 81 78 81 81 82 76 76 79 73 79 75 77 78 80 78 83 84 77 69 75 70 74 83 80 75 76 75 Hypotheses:

Considering that all other aspects of the marine reserves were equal except for size, the biologist wanted to find out if the size of the marine reserve had an effect on the overall number of fishes living within them. To test this he designated a single species Acantharus olivaceous as the test species, and established ten counting stations and noted the number of A. olivaceous  in each station and noted those in the data sheet. He did this for all areas and listed his data below.

The Jackson’s chameleon is a very popular animal among reptile keepers owing to the horns possessed by the males. The larger the horns, the more expensive the price. An exotic animal breeder wanted to find out if the length of the horns of males are related to the mass (weight) of the animal rather than size (length). He collected data from his captive stock males and got the following data:

A reforested area consists of three tree species A, B, and C, and four species of endemic bird species 1, 2, 3, and 4. The timber concession that owns the area is preparing to cut down trees for use as wood pulp for paper manufacturing. As part of the deal with the WWF, the timber concession can only cut down one species of tree. To help them decide what species of tree to cut, the company hired an ornithologist who did a survey of each tree species, and what bird species was found utilizing each tree species. The results of the survey are listed as:

- relies on a constellation of 24 NAVSTAR satellites launched and maintained by the U.S. Department of Defense

- uses at least 5 satellites/space vehicles (SVs)  Satellites are used to transmit the signal by letting

these signal bounce on them since sound and light travel in a straight line.

SVs orbit at an altitude of about 21,000 km

SVs keep time using an atomic clock that loses or gains one second every 30,000 years

Unlike other devices like communication gadgets, GPS doesn’t need an importance signal.

It only needs the signal to be bounced back to the recipient.

REMINDERS in using the GPS:

Use it in an open area.Move slowly, do not run.Do not cover the transmitter.

Other information GPS can give you:

- applies to a square sample unit or plot - may be a single sample unit or be divided into

subplots

the richer the flora, the larger or more numerous the quadrats must be b. Transect Line

- across section of an area

- used to relate changes in vegetation within it to changes in the environment

c. Point-Quarter

- most useful in sampling communities in which individuals are widely spaced or in which the dominant plants are large shrubs or trees

The classic distance method is the point quarter method which was developed by the first land surveyors in the U.S.A. in the nineteenth century. The four trees nearest to the corner of each section of land (1 sq. mile) were recorded in the first land surveys and they form a valuable data base on the composition of the forests in the eastern U.S. before much land had been converted to agriculture. The point quarter technique has been a commonly used distance method in forestry. It was first used in plant ecology by Cottam et al. (1953) and Cottam and Curtis (1956). Figure 5.10 illustrates the technique. A series of random points is selected often along a transect line with the constraint that points should not be so close that the same individual is measured at two successive points. The area around each random point is divided into four 90° quadrants and the distance to the nearest tree is measured in each of the four quadrants. Thus, 4 point-to-organism distances are generated at each random point, and this method is similar to measuring the distances from a random point to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th nearest neighbors.

Figure 5.10 Point-quarter method of d ensity estimation. The area around each random point is subdivided into four 90° quadrants and the nearest organism to the random point is located in each quadrant. Thus four point-to-organism distances (blue arrows) are obtained at each random point. This method is commonly used on forest trees. Trees illustrate individual organisms
