  1. Direct effect refers to the treatment where animals were raised directly in conditioned water, whereas the maternal effect refers to the offspring of these manipulated mothers. Traits measured include the body size and lifetime fecundity of animals that survived until the end of the experimental period. Presented are the appropriate test statistics (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***P < 0.001), and relative effect sizes (partial-η2) that estimate the proportion of variability associated with a particular effect
