We survey the results of Rubinfeld, Batu et al. (, ) on testing distributions for monotonicity, and testing distributions known to be monotone for uniformity. We extend some of their results to new partial orders, and provide evidence for some new conjectural lower bounds. Our results apply to various partial orders: bipartite graphs, lines,, trees, grids, and hypercubes.
