Yatquat fruit evaluation

Description

The quality of yatquat tree fruit is assessed in terms of relative proportions by volume of flesh, skin and stone. In an experiment an arboriculturist uses 40 trees, randomly allocated 20 to the hormone treatment and leaves untreated the remaining 20 trees. Data provides fruit compositions of the present season and the preceding season, as well as the treatment: 1 for the treated trees, -1 for untreated trees.

Format

A 40x7 data matrix

Details

The yatquat tree produces each season a single large fruit. Data provides fruit compositions of the present season, the compositions of the fruit of the same 40 trees for the preceding season when none of the trees were treated, and in addition the Type: 1 for the treated trees, -1 for untreated trees. For each of the 40 cases we have two 3-part composition on flesh, skin and stone. The column names are:

prFL portion of fruit flesh in the present season,
prSK portion of fruit skin in the present season,
prST portion of fruit stone in the present season,
Type 1 for treated, $-1$ for untreated trees,
paFL portion of fruit flesh in the preceding season,
paSK portion of fruit skin in the preceding season,
paST portion of fruit stone in the preceding season,

All 3-part compositions sum to one.
