Blog Post 8 Maple Tables and Graphs

Hello everyone!

I did not have any difficulties organizing, aggregating, or summarizing the data. The statistical outcome of the data was interesting. The tree bark temperature is related to air temperature through the equation y=1.2316x–6.3894. Statistically, air temperature accounted for 74.37% of the variation of tree bark temperature. The results were expected and comply with my hypothesis and prediction. Another 25.63% (100%-74.37%=25.63%) of variation is accounted for by combinations of factors other than air temperature. This reveals future directions of study on tree bark including: temperature sensitive proteins in bark, metabolic responses to temperature, biochemical composition of tree bark, biochemical processes within tree bark tissue, and geothermal conductance as factors relating to tree bark temperature.
