Sorry for bothering you - but I have a little problem. I`m completely 
new in R and trying to use lmer. That works, but I m not sure if my code 
is right, so I would just like to get an opinion from the experts.

I have a Growthrate of plants (RGR
Fixed Factors: Fertilizer, Status (alien or native plants) and their 
Random Factors: Age is a covariable; than I have plantfamily and Species 
nested within Family.
Now I want also to test for the interaction of Fertilizer with 
plantfamily and species. Did I do this the right way, and is the 0+ 


I`m thankful for any comments!
