|Summary of ANCOVA results for latent period|
|Source||DF||Type II SS||F||p|
|Host x Pustule density||4||0.757||2.746||0.0556|
|Pathogen x Host||16||1.292||1.173||0.3604|
The response variable is latent period, and it was measured as days until 50% of the pustules were producing spores. Log transformed pustule density (pustules per cm2 of leaf tissue) was used as a covariate. The interaction effect of pathogen genotype by pustule density was not significant and was removed from the model.
