  1. I created 5 figures and two graphs for my project. Table 2 gave summary statistics. I did have to get R to create a table for categorical variables and one for continuous variables, otherwise it would automatically use a t test for all the data, instead of a chi-squared or fisher’s exact (which is what I wanted to categorical). I almost didn’t catch this mistake!

    The figures I created were to demonstrate the lack of correlation between my x variables and to plot the means of my univariate models stratified by tree type. I didn’t have much difficultly creating these, and the results were what I had expected.

    Although not shown in a figure, my data did surprise me in that moisture and tree distance were both significant predictor variables for ivy presence and density. Had I known this, I maybe would have expanded my study area to include non-infected trees/trees with no ivy present at the base (just like Percy suggested I do! Oh well).
