Optimising survey effort to monitor environmental variables

A new statistical power analysis R package simr informs environmental monitoring design within New Zealand's main kiwifruit growing region (Bay of Plenty). The pilot data for 13 environmental variables were gathered from 30 orchards between 2004 and 2010 by the Agricultural Research Group on Sustainability (ARGOS).

The data support an article submitted to Journal of Environmental Management: "Optimising survey effort to monitor environmental variables: a case study using New Zealand kiwifruit orchards" by Catriona J. MacLeod, Peter Green, Daniel M. Tompkins, Jayson Benge and Henrik Moller. In review.

Research completed as part of the New Zealand Sustainability Dashboard project (http://www.nzdashboard.org.nz/)
