    Barranquilla is known as a dynamically growing city in the Colombian Caribbean. Urbanisation induces land use and land cover (LULC) changes in the city and its hinterland affecting the region’s climate and biodiversity. This paper aims to identify the trends of land use and land cover changes in the hinterland of Barranquilla corresponding to 13 municipalities in the north of the Department Atlántico. Landsat TM/ETM/OLI imagery from 1985 to 2017 was used to map and analyse the spatio-temporal development of land use and land cover changes.

    The factors influencing the size and shape of exptl. field plots (area of exptl. lot, soil types, trial objective, no. of replicates, and degree of accuracy and homogeneity of the exptl. material) for the execution of field expt. are discussed. The basic principles of the following different methods to determine plot size are described: max. curve method, method of Koch and Rigney, Hatheway's method, and the max. curve method using the multiple linear regression model. Some considerations are presented on the border effect and on plot size in bush and climbing bean trials.
