box.cork {agridat}R Documentation

Weight of cork samples on four sides of trees

Description

The cork data gives the weights of cork borings of the trunk for 28 trees on the north (N), east (E), south (S) and west (W) directions.

Format

Data frame with 28 observations on the following 5 variables.

tree

tree number

dir

direction N,E,S,W

y
