Burned Forest Vs Unburned Forest

Decent Essays
In comparison of the burned forest (forest A) and the unburned forest (forest C), it was found that the evidence rejected the null hypothesis that there would be a significant difference between the leaf litter depths of the two forest types (d.f. 49, p= 0.0036, t= 3.061). Further analysis shows that the unburned forest has a leaf litter depth mean of 2.97 cm and a standard deviation of 0.935. The burned forest was represented by a mean of 3.93 cm and a standard deviation of 1.26. The data collected also found that according to the Shapiro-Wilk test, there is not enough evidence to reject our null hypothesis that there would be a normal distribution in the leaf litter depths between the unburned forest (W=0.96, p=0.4341) and the burned forest
