Hi everyone. I am trying to add a formula to my data using the groupedData function.
My experiment consists of randomized block design using fruits, vegetation and time as factors. The idea is to see if fruits, vegetation and time explain the abundance of mice. I am using tree density as a covariate. So I tried to fit the following structure to my data.
> traps<-groupedData(mice~tree|plotID,outer=~time*fruit*veget|block,data=trap)

but time and block are still considered to be numeric, while in fact they should be factor and ordered, respectively.
> sapply(traps,data.class)

     mice plotID veget fruit time block tree "numeric" "ordered" "factor" "factor" "numeric" "numeric" "numeric"

Is there a way to change that?

Thank you very much.

PS: the levels for fruit and veget are intact or removed
