Johnson (1984) sampled the young-of-year (YOY) gizzard shad (Dorosoma cepedianum) pop- ulation at four different sites in Kokosing Lake (Ohio) in summer 1984. The data are lengths (mm) of the YOY gizzard shad and a subset is given: Site 1 Site 2 Site 3 Site 4 46 42 38 31 28 60 33 30 46 32 26 27 37 42 25 29 32 45 28 30 41 58 28 25 42 27 26 25 45 51 27 24 38 42 27 27 44 52 27 30 Test whether there are any differences between the lengths for the YOY gizzard shad popula- tions in the four Kokosing Lake sites. What specific sites, if any, are different? Use the all possible analysis you can think of, and be sure to be clearly stating HYPOTHESIS and what your assumptions are.
