RCB experiment of rice, 12 varieties with leafhopper survival

Description

RCB experiment of rice, 12 varieties with leafhopper survival

Usage

data("gomez.nonnormal3")

Format

A data frame with 36 observations on the following 3 variables.

gen

genotype/variety of rice

rep

replicate

hoppers

percentage of surviving leafhoppers

Details

For each rice variety, 75 leafhoppers were caged and the percentage of surviving insects was determined.

Gomez suggest replacing 0 values by 1/(4*75) and replacing 100 by 1-1/(4*75) where 75 is the number of insects.

In effect, this means, for example, that (1/4)th of an insect survived.

Because the data are percents, Gomez suggested using the arcsin transformation.

Examples

## Not run: 

library(agridat)
data(gomez.nonnormal3)
dat <- gomez.nonnormal3

# First, replace 0, 100 values
dat$thoppers <- dat$hoppers
dat <- transform(dat, thoppers=ifelse(thoppers==0, 1/(4*75), thoppers))
dat <- transform(dat, thoppers=ifelse(thoppers==100, 100-1/(4*75), thoppers))
# Arcsin transformation of percentage p converted to degrees
# is arcsin(sqrt(p))/(pi/2)*90
dat <- transform(dat, thoppers=asin(sqrt(thoppers/100))/(pi/2)*90)

# QQ plots for raw/transformed data
libs(reshape2, lattice)
qqmath( ~ value|variable, data=melt(dat),
       main="gomez.nonnormal3 - raw/transformed QQ plot",
