Details

This dataset was originally part of package nlme, and that has methods (including for [, as.data.frame, plot and print) for its grouped-data classes.

Format

An object of class c("nfnGroupedData", "nfGroupedData", "groupedData", "data.frame") containing the following columns:

height
a numeric vector of tree heights (ft).
age
a numeric vector of tree ages (yr).
Seed
an ordered factor indicating the seed source for the tree. The ordering is according to increasing maximum height.
