Results of ANOVAs for length and weight data using diet group and either body weight or LPJ weight as factors. Given are the p-values of the ANOVAs and the p-values from a subsequent Tukey honest significant difference-test for each group comparison. WS: 'with shell'-group; NS: 'no shell'-group; G: 'ground'-group
