- I have a study where I have two stress zones (high and low stress).
- In each zone, I have 10 sites.
- Within each site, I am setting up traps at 1m, 2m, 3m, 4m, and 5m away from a focal plant.
- My response variable is number of insects caught per trap.
I am interested in if the response changes with distance away from the focal plant and if there is an interaction between distance x stress zone.
Would a repeated measures analysis be a appropriate way to analyze these data? I keep reading about repeated measures through time, but repeated measures through space at the same site might make sense. Like a two-factor experiment with repeated measures on one factor, I think I would use site nested within stress zone as the error term for the effect of stress zone. Is my logic correct?
