Unformatted text preview: Is the result consistent with his theory? • Give the predicted values for (Foul, 1), (Foul, 3), (Not Foul, 1), (Not Foul, 3). Part 2 – Bird Species in Solomon Islands A study looked at the relationship between: • S = # of Species living near sealevel on the individual islands of Solomon archipelago • A = Area in miles 2 • D = Distance from center of archipelago in miles (many have 0 for value) The authors fit the model: Fit the regression model. As a starting set of values, set β =35, β 1 =5, all other β s = 1.This is based on fitting a simple linear regression between S and log(A) for the islands with D=0, to get starting values for β and β 1 . (Why?). Give the fitted values for the following combination of values of A and D : A\D 25 75 225 0.5 2 10 1000...
