Cover image: This figure shows the distribution of yields of 7 trials testing 240 wheat genotypes. We observe 1-2 yields for each genotype per trial. The large points in each facet show the observed yields for a particular genotype indicated in the facet title. Cases 1-2 shows where the observation in the second trial is flagged as an outlier only when considering information from other trials. Case 3 shows where the observation in the 7th trial is flagged as an outlier only if disregarding information from other trials. Case 4 shows that all methods considered picked observations in the first trial as an outlier. This comes from Figure 1 in the article authored by Emi Tanaka, and entitled "Simple outlier detection for a multi-environmental field trial."
