Appendix C. Standard lengths of focal individuals and prior residents.

   FIG. C1. Standard length (mm) +/- 95% CI's of focal individuals and prior residents for (a) Thalassoma hardwicke response to T. quinquevittatum prior residents, (b) T. quinquevittatum response to T. hardwicke prior residents, and (c) T. hardwicke response to T. hardwicke prior residents. In panels (a) and (b) the standard lengths of individuals in experimental runs one two are indicated by white and gray bars respectively. For each experimental run, a one-way ANOVA indicated that standard lengths of individuals at the time they were introduced to reefs did not statistically differ across levels of prior residency (i.e., 0-d, 5-d, and 12-d), or between focal individuals and prior residents: (a) df = 3, F = 2.526, P = 0.060 and df = 3, F = 1.623, P = 0.187 for experimental runs one and two respectively; (b) df = 3, F = 1.838, P = 0.143 and df = 3, F = 2.328, P = 0.077 for experimental runs one and two respectively; and (c) df = 3, F = 1.012 and P = 0.388.
