On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the rotifer data set which pertains to Numbers of Rotifers by Fluid Density. The rotifer data set is found in the MASS R package. You can load the rotifer data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("rotifer"). This will load the data into a variable called rotifer. If R says the rotifer data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("MASS") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the rotifer R data set. The size of this file is about 403 bytes.
Numbers of Rotifers by Fluid Density
The data give the numbers of rotifers falling out of suspension for different fluid densities. There are two species,
pm Polyartha major and
kc, Keratella cochlearis and for each species the number falling out and the total number are given.
specific density of fluid.
number falling out for P. major.
total number of P. major.
number falling out for K. cochlearis.
total number of K. cochlearis.
