Statistical analysis of comparative field trials of acute rodenticides

  • L. W. Huson (a1)

Summary

The present method of analysis of data from comparative field trials of acuterodenticides was compared with two alternative methods of analysis, using computer simulation techniques. One of the proposed alternative analyses, the use of post-treatment census takes as a percentage of pre-treatment census takes in an analysis of variance, was found to be more accurate, to avoid a theoretical difficulty associated with the present method, and is computationally much simpler.
