Appendix B. An ANOVA table showing macroalgal recruitment among transplanted shells with and without Corynactis californica in barren and forested areas at Carpinteria Reef and Coal Oil Point.

TABLE B1. Three-way ANOVA results for the effects of Corynactis, habitat, and reef on algal biomass (g wet mass) among Corynactis colonies transplanted to barren and forested areas at both Carpinteria Reef and Coal Oil Point. The three-way interaction was not significant (P < 0.37) and the reduced model is shown.
