Appendix B. Tests for differences in macroalgal assemblage structure among grazer diversity treatments.

Table B1. PERMANOVA post hoc pairwise tests of differences in macroalgal assemblage structure among grazer diversity treatments (None = no grazers; P, L and G = monocultures of Patella, Littorina and Gibbula, respectively; PLG = polyculture containing all three species). Significant differences are highlighted in bold.
