In many practical situations the most appropriate alternative in hypothesis testing is order restricted, and is therefore in the investigators best interest to use testing procedures developed for the specific alternatives at hand. Some of the most commonly seen applications of order restricted inference can be found in biology. A collection of tests for inference regarding equality of k correlation coefficients against ordered alternatives will be presented. Also inference under order restrictions for k means from a lognormal distribution will be discussed. We will also be investigating inference on lognormal populations in the presence of inflated zeros for ordered alternatives. The focus will be on the most common type of order restriction seen in practice, which is the simple order, however tree order and umbrella order will also be examined briefly.
