I am attempting to assess the ecological validity of an animal testing procedure as follows:
I have notated x number of events that occur in the wild. During each event, the speed of the animal is recorded in categorical terms (walk, run, sprint). eg. The animal walked 35 times, ran 70 times, and sprinted 3 times.
I then placed different animals in a lab and notated events again. Let's say this time the animal then walks 20 times, runs 30 times, and sprints 5 times.
How can I calculate if the distribution of running gaits within the lab fits the distribution of the running variables seen in the wild? I'm assuming I should use a chi-square test of some kind, but I'm not sure if I should use a chi-square goodness of fit test or a chi-square test of independence.
I am looking to undertake the statistical procedure using R if that changes anything.
