I just replaced my environmental data with some random data to make things easier to run, and accordingly I had to make up some story around the data (testing bootstrap resampling). Fee free to rework the code as you see fit, but hopefully this is a helpful example. http://www.nabble.com/file/p24764036/boxplotExampleForums.png -------------------------- boxplotdemo.py -------------------------- import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt from matplotlib.patches import Polygon #Generate some data from five different probability distributions, each with #different characteristics.
