Platt's research strategy called 'strong inference' is often studied, but is difficult to apply. Here strong inference is applied in selecting differential equation models of sugar maple, Acer saccharum M., height growth.:594-616.) are supplemented with two additional groups, 1) size decline and 2) second order differential equations, nearly exhausting the(More)
We provide here our response to Zeide (2010) comment (Zeide, B. 2010. Using strong inference to falsify differential equation models of sugar maple height growth—Discussion. MCFNS 2(1):12-14) on our earlier article of the same title. Zeide (2010) concludes his discussion by stating: " With regard to the differential equation models of height growth sugar(More)
