In science:

Observe that the percentages and Figure 9 are suggestive of segregation for all tree species, especially for Carolina ashes, water tupelos, black gums, and the “other” trees since the observed percentages of species with themselves as the NN are much larger than the row percentages.
Overall and Pairwise Segregation Tests Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
Figure 9: The scatter plot of the locations of water tupelos (triangles △), black gum trees (pluses +), Carolina ashes (crosses ×), bald cypress trees (diamonds ⋄), and other trees (inverse triangles ▽).
Overall and Pairwise Segregation Tests Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
We will only consider the three most frequent tree species in this data set (i.e., water tupelos, black gums, and Carolina ashes).

Table 8: The NNCT for swamp tree data and the corresponding percentages (in parentheses), where the cell percentages are with respect to the row sums and marginal percentages are with respect to the total size. W.T. = water tupelos, B.G. = black gums, and C.A. = Carolina ashes.
New Tests of Spatial Segregation Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
Based on Cuzick-Edwards k-NN tests (i.e., Tk ), water tupelos and black gums exhibit significant segregation since all Tk values are significant.
New Tests of Spatial Segregation Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
Likewise for water tupelos versus Carolina ashes and bald cypresses versus Carolina ashes.
New Tests of Spatial Segregation Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
Water tupelos exhibit aggregation for the range of the plotted distances; black gums exhibit significant aggregation for distances t > 1 m; and Carolina ashes exhibit significant aggregation for the range of plotted distances.
New Tests of Spatial Segregation Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
Wide dashed lines around 1 (which is the theoretical value) are the upper and lower (pointwise) 95 % confidence bounds for the L-functions based on Monte Carlo simulations under the CSR independence pattern. W.T. = water tupelos, B.G. = black gums and C.A. = Carolina ashes.
New Tests of Spatial Segregation Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
Observe that the percentages and Figure 3 are suggestive of segregation for all tree species, especially for Carolina ashes, water tupelos, black gums, and the “other” trees since the observed percentage of species with themselves as the NN is much larger than the marginal (row or column) percentages.

Wide dashed lines around 0 are the upper and lower 95 % confidence bounds for the L-functions based on Monte Carlo simulations under the CSR independence pattern. W.T. = water tupelo, B.G. = black gum, C.A. = Carolina ash, B.C. = bald cypress, and O.T. = other tree species.
