The Regression shows a very large coefficient of association
between the PDP and the OPS with full significance 0.
If as we suggest the two strategies are net substitutes with respect to many of these characteristics, we should expect (1) the coefficient of association
member to be negative and those of many of the other explanatory variables in Table 3 to have signs opposite to those reported in Table 2 for association membership.
Laland and Kendal (2003) show that a correlation between the coefficient of association
and the order of information acquisition can provide evidence to distinguish directed social learning from asocial learning, while cases of acquisition by offspring before parents may often render a genetic account implausible (unless there are developmental constraints on the adoption of the new behaviour).
Yule's coefficient of association
is tested in the data if Y is found to be +1 there is perfect association and if Y = -1 there is perfect negative association(Pillai and Bagavathi 2001).
The Winter coefficient of association
for bull elk in the PRCSF was significantly smaller than for bulls in the Camp 30 Hills and cows in both the PRCSF and Camp 30 Hills.
