Independent analysis project

Independent Analysis Project

  • Data Screening - Due April 10 ( 5 points)

Instructions:

Submit one file by email to khyrenba@gmail.com

A ppt file with your name as suffix

(e.g., MARS6300_DataScreening_KDH.ppt) containing PC-ORD output text and figures


Independent analysis project

Screening #1 – Data Summary (2 points)

  • Provide a summary of the data sets you will use in your project, making sure you explicitly discuss:

  • How many species / variables selected for analysis ?

  • What criteria did you use to make this selection ?

  • How many environmental variables used ? Are they Q / C ?

  • Summarize environmental variables (skewness) (use PC ORD)

  • Summarize species data (skewness) (use PC ORD)

  • Perform outlier analysis for species / samples (use PC ORD)

  • Summarize sums / ranges for species / variables (use PC ORD)

  • Summarize “zero” data; “empty” species / samples (use PC ORD)

  • Report species dominance (plot / table) – if you have species data


Independent analysis project

Screening #2 – Data Transformations (2 points)

  • Provide a summary of the data transformations you will do, making sure you explicitly explain:

  • Which transformations you propose to do and why . Hint: use PC-ORD to identify outliers and to summarize descriptive statistics?

  • Changes in Environmental variable skewness after transformation

  • Changes in Species data skewness after transformation

  • Perform outlier analysis again for species and samples after transformations, to see if they solved problems identified above


Independent analysis project

Screening #3 – Cross-Correlations (1 point)

  • Provide a summary of the data cross-correlations, making sure you report the following:

  • Cross-correlations of environmental variables (r and p values)

  • Plot scatterplots of environmental variables (use PC-ORD)

  • Brief narrative explaining what these cross-correlations show
