[R] Fwd: model simplification in repeated anova

I tried to do a model simplification in a repeated anova with 3
factors (population,treatment,site). I tried to get rid of some
interactions. Obviously it's not possible to use the function "anova"
straight away to compare the different models. I got the suggestion
to use the function proj (see below). In my data, however, I have in
"block" not the third order interaction (n:p:k), but two factors and
their interaction (population, site, population:site).
I somehow didn't manage to get the right aov after the projection.

> npk.proj <- proj(npk.aovE)
> npk.x <- npk.proj$block[,"N:P:K"]
> npk.aov <- aov(terms(yield ~ npk.x + block + N+P+K+N:P+N:K+P:K,
> keep.order=TRUE), npk)
> np.k.aov <- aov(terms(yield ~ block + N+P+K+N:P, keep.order=TRUE),
> anova(npk.aov, np.k.aov)
