Question description

This question is in honor of my alma mater, Texas Christian University. Young et al. (2006) studied horned lizard (aka horned frogs) survival at the hands of predators. They measured the length (in mm) of the squamosal horn of living horned lizards and of recently killed horned lizards to see if this structure might affect survival. For each outcome (alive or dead), they obtained data from 10 individuals from three populations. Live individuals were obtained from Lubbock, Austin, and Waco; dead individuals were obtained from Stillwater, Norman, and San Antonio. The lengths of the squamosal horn are given below for each population:

A)  You should analyze these data using one of the following options: two-factor ANOVA; nested ANOVA; repeated-measures ANOVA. Which is the correct option, and why is that the best analysis to use?

B)  Analyze the data using the ANOVA technique you selected for the answer to part A. The data may need to be rearranged in order to do this correctly in either Excel or some of the other online statistics calculators!
