Using segmented regression to analyse the response of germination to temperature
The use of a quadratic function to describe the response of germination to temperature may not be appropriate and can lead to inappropriate estimates. It is argued that the data generally suggest a different paradigm for the response. When segmented regression was used to fit the proposed paradigm there were more reliable and realistic estimates of important features of the germination response of a range of species to temperature than could be provided by the quadratic function.
