Table C1. Summary statistics for 2011 hand pollination and egg removal experiment. Summary statistics for 2011 Hand pollination and egg removal experiment. Mean values (± 1 SE) of reproductive success and predation rates for females (F) and hermaphrodites (H) in the 2011 hand pollination and egg removal experiment. Treatmeants at the plant level include controls (C), hand pollination (HP), egg removal (ER), and hand pollination and egg removal (HP and ER). Controls stalks are denoted "c" and treatment stalks "t".
