Table I

P values of paired t tests (N = 32) comparing means of % Visual Crown Transparency or % Visual Crown Discoloration (in italic) of poplar trees calculated with different combinations of one, two or three sub-plots per stand, after angular transformation (arcsin (x)).

Numbers in lines and columns indicate sub-plot numbers and combinations. Light grey cells indicate inappropriate comparisons, those in which the two compared tree samples were not independent (i.e. sharing common trees).
