Blocked vs. randomized block design affected by a light gradient

EVO routines have been developed to visualize several standard experimental designs with different numbers of replications and including randomization procedures. Via these routines the visualized designs can be scaled relative to environmental gradients (confounding factors) with repercussions on the experimental outcome.

Plants: Plant growth

ShopStrip_PlantGrowthPlant growth visualization is quite challenging but can be approximated using different techniques. EVO routines have been developed for visualization of plant growth (plasticity) in relation to time and other input parameters, however only for limited shoot complexity (including first level branches).

Experimental Design

This EVO visualizes model experimental setups (factorial pot experiments with growing plants) in an inhomogeneous environmental setting. Students can directly observe plant responses to changes in the experimental design and environmental factors. The response data can be exported for analysis with statistics packages.
