Comparing rates example

A conservationist thinks that squirrels exhibit higher aggression rates when crowded together. To test this, they compare three parks with different squirrel populations and areas. By calculating squirrels per hectare, they find Park C to be the most crowded, followed by Park B and Park A. The conservationist expects the highest aggression rate in Park C due to its crowdedness.
