8a the distribution is more or less symmetrical, with a peak close to the centre. 8a, the mode and the arithmetic mean amount to the same thing. 8 Histogram frequency distributions of: (a) the length of the right forelimb of field cricket (Gryllus bimaculatus) nymphs, (b) the number of aggressive encounters per day between male mice (Mus musculus) in an enclosure and (c) the duration of the aggressive displays of male Siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens) in pairwise encounters. central tendency.

For instance, a common cause of early despair among students watching animals in a tank or arena for the first time is the mêlée of ceaselessly changing activities, many of which seem directionless and without an obvious goal. An equally common complaint is that the animals seem to be doing nothing at all worth mentioning. It is not unusual for both extremes to be generated by the same animals. In both of the earlier mentioned cases, the problem almost always turns out to be not what the animals are or are not doing, but the ability of the observer to observe.

5 (halfway between 20 and 23). Note that the median may yield a value close to or very different from the mean. 1 and thus similar to the median. 58. 2â•… Exploratory Analysisâ•… 31 Again, we want some way of indicating how much confidence to place in the median. By far the simplest way is to find the confidence limits to the median using a standard table, part of which is shown in Appendix I. All we need to do is rank order our data values as before, count the number of values in the sample (n), then use n to read off a value r from the table.
