Some recommended texts to assist experimental design and statistical analysis include Steel and Torrie (1980), Ramsey and Schafer (2002), Moore et al. (2012), and Welham et al. (2014). Data arising from a single experiment is just one realization of the many, many experiments that could have occurred under similar conditions. Statistical analysis allows statements to be made about the population of experiments of which the observed data is only a sample (Snedecor and Cochran, 1967). The data from one single experiment provides information about the particular system that we are studying and it is the system that is the focus of modeling, not the data.

2010). They further suggested that this technique may be an appropriate method to improve the fruit’s aroma where these effects were from an increase in pyruvate decarboxylase and alcohol dehydrogenase activities in the presence of calcium. Ortiz et al. (2011) indicated that preharvest calcium sprays enhanced most of the compounds contributing to overall flavor in ripe fruit, suggesting that this procedure may be suitable for improving the fruit’s aroma at harvest. The positive effects of calcium in enhancing postharvest quality of pear have confirmed earlier studies by Wills et al.
