Now that we are all comfortable and confident about what the Experimental Unit is in our research – we now need to think about replication. Are we currently taking proper replicates? Or are we taking sub-samples or pseudoreplicates?
Join us on October 3rd, to discuss replicates, sub-sampling, and more. To prepare for this session, please take a few minutes and review the following papers:
- Lee, C. and Rawlings, J.O. 1982. Design of experiments in growth chambers – Uniformity trials in the North Carolina State University Phytotron. Crop Science: 22: 551-558 doi:10.2135/cropsci1982.0011183X002200030028x
- Hurlbert, S.H. 1984. Pseudoreplication and the design of ecological field experiments. Ecological Monographs: 54(2): 187-211 doi: 10.2307/1942661
During this 50 minute session, we will review the definition of an experimental unit, subsampling unit, and discuss the papers above.
