In the article “Occurrence and Distribution of Ammonium in Iowa Groundwater” (K. Schilling, Water Environment Research, 2002:177–186), ammonium concentrations (in mg/L) were measured at a large number of wells in the state of Iowa. These included five types of bedrock wells. The number of wells of each type, along with the mean and standard deviation of the concentrations in those wells, is presented in the following table.
Can you conclude that the mean concentration differs among the five types of wells?
Intro to Anthropology: Week 1 Biological Anthropology Seek to understand how humans adapt to diverse environments. They study other primates, the fossil record, prehistoric people and the biology and genetics of living populations. Archeological Anthropology Study past people and cultures. Use material evidence, such as bones, tools and pottery. Sociological Anthropology Examine social patterns and practices across cultures. Use participant observation which involves placing oneself in the research context for extended periods of time. Linguistic Anthropology Comparative study of ways in which language reflects in cultures.
