A wide variety of information can be gained on the spatial pattern of the individuals within a population with the help of the grid analysis developed by GREIG-SMITH . Though the statistical testability of the method is rather weak owing to the dependence of the samples, it is less time consuming than other methods, which is an advantage. Following the detailed description of the method, a demonstration is given in respect to a few characteristics of the pattern analysis, using a computer program. Following the questions related to aggregation square size and the detectability of the intensity of group formation, the problems pertaining to aggregate orientation are discussed. Based on the one-way complete reduction of the fundamental units of the quadrat grid, the specific spatial orientation of the aggregates is demonstrable. At the end of the paper, a concrete example is given for the course of the calculation and the mode of evaluation of the analysis.
