Appendix A. A mixed-model ANOVA table showing fixed effects of seed species and burial location (crown) on seed survival and an ANOVA table showing effects of provenance, burial location, and maternal source on seed survival.

TABLE A1: Mixed model ANOVA to test fixed effects of seed species and burial location (crown) on seed survival. Maternal source (nested within species), was treated as a random effect. Maternal source was used to test species, the residual was used to test crown and crown × species. Bold P values indicate significance.
