Julian M. Norghauer and David M. Newbery. 2011. Seed fate and seedling dynamics after masting in two African rain forest trees. Ecological Monographs 81:443–468.

Appendix D. ANOVA statistical tables for the five seed fates investigated inside compared to outside the grove of Microberlinia bisulcata trees.

Split-split-split ANOVAs on the five types of seed fates for Microberlinia bisulcata and Tetraberlinia bifoliolata for INSIDE vs. OUTSIDE the adult Microberlinia grove (n = 15  experimental blocks inside paired with 15 blocks outside, each pair forms a 'stripblock').
