  1. Summary of the result of two-factor ANOVA with selection regime as fixed factor crossed with random blocks on (A) mean longevity under “non-reproducing” and “reproducing” treatments with all three regimes included in the analysis, (B) mean longevity under “non-reproducing” and “reproducing” treatments with C-regime excluded from the analysis, and (C) LH-female mortality - female mortality and mortality rate. Except female mortality rate, vial means were taken as the unit of analysis. Mortality rate of each population was calculated and these population level estimates were used as the unit of analysis. p-values in bold case are statistically significant.
