## Not run: 
  library(agridat)
  data(jayaraman.bamboo)
  dat <- jayaraman.bamboo

  # very surprising differences between locations
  libs(lattice)
  bwplot(height ~ family|loc, d2, main="jayaraman.bamboo")
  # match Jayarman's anova table 6.3, page 173
  # m1 <- aov(height ~ loc+loc:block + family + family:loc + family:loc:block, data=d2)
  # anova(m1)

  # more modern approach with mixed model, match variance components needed
  # for equation 6.9, heritability of the half-sib averages as
  m2 <- lme4::lmer(height ~ 1 + (1|loc/block) + (1|family/loc/block), data=d2)
