mead.germination {agridat}R Documentation

Seed germination with different temperatures/concentrations

Description

Seed germination with different temperatures/concentrations

Format

A data frame with 64 observations on the following 5 variables.

temp

temperature regimen

rep

replication factor (not blocking)

conc

chemical concentration

germ

number of seeds germinating

seeds

number of seeds tested = 50

Details

The rep factor is NOT a blocking factor.
