Hello, I use lme4 package. library(lme4) fit=lmer(y ~ time+dye+trt+trt:time + (1|rep), data=dataset, na.action='na.omit') anova(fit) The anova gives sequential F-tests and sequential SS. My question is: how I can get partial F-tests and partial SS? For lm (not lmer) anova(lm(y~x+z)) we can use anova(fit, ssType=3) but it is not work for lmer. Natalia.
