pine_full: Complete Pine dataset

Description Usage Format Details Source References Examples

Description

This is the complete caterpillar dataset from a 1973 study on pine_full processionary caterpillars. It assesses the influence of some forest settlement characteristics on the development of caterpillar colonies. The response variable is the logarithmic transform of the average number of nests of caterpillars per tree in an area of 500 square meters (x11). There are k=10 potentially explanatory variables defined on n=55 areas.

Usage

Format

A data frame with 55 observations on the following 11 variables.

x1

altitude (in meters)

x2

slope (en degrees)

x3

number of pine_fulls in the area

x4

height (in meters) of the tree sampled at the center of the area

x5

diameter (in meters) of the tree sampled at the center of the area

x6

index of the settlement density

x7

orientation of the area (from 1 if southbound to 2 otherwise)

x8

height (in meters) of the dominant tree

x9

number of vegetation strata

x10

mix settlement index (from 1 if not mixed to 2 if mixed)

x11

logarithmic transform of the average number of nests of caterpillars per tree

Details

These caterpillars got their names from their habit of moving over the ground in incredibly long head-to-tail processions when leaving their nest to create a new colony.
