Design and Analysis of Forest-Mammal Repellent Tests
A randomized complete block design consisting of 10 blocks with 10 trees per block for each of 8 treatments is applicable for evaluating candidate forest-mammal repellents on Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco seedlings. Percent damage for each treatment group of 10 trees is transformed to arc sine, and the null hypotheses tested by analysis of variance at α = .05. If the null hypothesis for treatments is rejected, Scheffé's S-method is employed to contrast the k experimental means at α = .10. The arc sine transformation provides an acceptable model and tends to minimize heterogeneous variance and nonnormality.
