spruce data frame has 1027 rows and 6 columns. The data consists
of measurements on 79 sitka spruce trees over two growing seasons. The trees
were grown in four controlled environment chambers, of which the first two,
containing 27 trees each, were treated with introduced ozone at 70 ppb whilst
the remaining two, containing 12 and 13 trees, were controls.
This data frame contains the following columns:
a numeric vector of chamber numbers
a factor with levels
a numeric vector of tree id
a numeric vector of the time when the measurements were taken, measured in days since Jan. 1, 1988
a numeric vector of the measurement number
a numeric vector of the log-size
