Effect size (η2) of pathogen and host genotype on pathogen life-history stages
Life-history stage SSWP SSP 2 SSSP SSH 2
Total spore production 23.86 4.74 0.199 9.19 3.80 0.414
Infection efficiency 27.56 6.50 0.236 ns ns ns
Latent period 25.45 3.59 0.141 11.58 5.78 0.499
Sporulation capacity 22.42 4.40 0.196 8.25 3.44 0.417

Pathogen effect sizes (Pη2) were calculated by dividing the sum of squares explained by the pathogen (SSP) by the total sum of squares at the whole-plot level (SSWP). Host effect sizes (Hη2) were calculated by dividing sum of squares explained by the host (SSH) by the total sum of squares at the split-plot level(SSSP).We did not calculate the effect size for host genotype on infection efficiency because the term was not significant (ns).
