data helping to generate a question
Augspurger et al. 2007, J. Exp. Bot.
Does variation in soil drainage
affect the frequency and mode of treefall?
and mode of death,
uprooted:snapped-off trees will be
greater in poorly drained than well-

t-test (frequency); chi-sq (ratio treefall type)
Results a temperate deciduous forestTreefall number depends on moisture
Number of treefalls
Results a temperate deciduous forestMode of death varies among soil types
Total Number of Treefalls
Conclusions: a temperate deciduous forest(summarize the results and draw an encompassing conclusion in the context of your introduction e.g., climate change, restoration ecology, spatial dynamics of fragmentation)
