I have been struggling with this problem:
I have the data of bird species richness which come from a factorial design
with 3 factors (topography, radiation, wetness). My problem is the
experimental plots were not located contigously. There were a
siginficant distance between plots. Because the birds is very mobile,
I suspect there is a spatial depedency among the experimental plots.
It means that we can't use the standard ANOVa which doesn't incorporate
the spatial phenomena. I guess the ANOVA model for this data, will be
different, where instead of one pure error term, we will have two error
terms, one for the spatial dependency and another for the pure error.
I read Cressie's book : Spatial Data Analysis which give some hints,
but I still confuse, anybody can help me to proceed with this problem?
Thanks a lot for explaining,
