ANOVA? Looking at percentage habitat use (6 different habitats) across four seasons

#1
Hi,

I am trying to look at whether habitat use of 6 different habitat types differs across 4 seasons. I have managed to run ANOVA tests but I'm not convinced this is correct. The code I have been using is as follows;

an.aov=aov(Month~Heathland)
an.aov
summary(an.aov)
other.aov=aov(Month~Other)
other.aov
summary(other.aov)
scrub.aov=aov(Month~Scrubland)
scrub.aov
summary(scrub.aov)
wet.aov=aov(Month~Wetland)
wet.aov
summary(wet.aov)
wood.aov=aov(Month~Woodland)
wood.aov
summary(wood.aov)

I thought I'd be able to run a single test with all the variables included, is this not possible? I have attached the data table below for you to view. Thank you in advance!!!

Hi,

You haven't really described your data in a way that an expert would know what to do.

I suggest you do the following;

1) read the posting guidelines

2) Carefully study this table on test choice.

3) Know your variables, and show that you understand your data and variables when commenting here next.

I' m sure you will be in a much better position to get help, then you would be after your above post. Random tidbits of r-code don't tells us that much either!

Good luck,
TE
