   Notes: ANCOVA for the effects of Family (random), Cross (inbred or outbred), Spray Treatment (weekly insecticide spray applications/no-spray), mean mass of 25 seeds from a fruit (covariate) and all two-way interactions involving Family, Cross, and Spray Treatment and the three-way interaction on seed germination (SAS Institute, 2002). P = probability.
