This seminar discusses some aspects of research planning that can be more effective through the use of statistical ideas. These include: setting your study objective; choosing your experimental ‘treatments’ and material; ideas that affect the structure of an experiment such as of ‘blocking’ and replication; trial ‘layout’; sampling, and data management. Most of these ideas apply whether the study/experiment uses people, plants, insects or any other biological material, and apply wherever the experiment might be based (many fields, fields, laboratory, tasting room, analytical instrument, etc.).
