Sourhope - Experimental design
Please note: This research Programme is no longer active
The Rigg Foot Experimental Site at Sourhope consists of 5 replicate blocks arranged in downslope environmental gradients in the chosen area of grassland. Each block contains 6 main plots with treatments allocated at random. The main-plots are subdivided into sub-plots to allow for the individual sampling strategies of award-holders
The following diagrams give further
details of the experimental design set-up at the Sourhope site, showing the plot
layout, the treaments types and also the sampling areas allocated to each of the projects
involved in the Programme.
The above main plot design was agreed
by the Steering Committee in London on December 8th 1998.
