Table 2 Post hoc comparisons of the treatment level combinations of environment during invasion and evolutionary background of community

From: Invasion triple trouble: environmental fluctuations, fluctuation-adapted invaders and fluctuation-mal-adapted communities all govern invasion success

Community’s evolution:   Constant Fluctuating Constant Fluctuating
   Environment: Constant Constant Fluctuating Fluctuating

  1. Treatment combinations of environment, and community evolution are indicated by the first two columns, and rows. In each submatrix, diagonal rows denotes median invasion success (%) in a given treatment, whereas off diagonal rows give propability of rank order change in posteriori estimates between treatment combinations
