First column (“4 groups”): P values of an ANOVA on the size (estimated by the centroid size of the given module of the mandible) of the two parental groups, and the F1 and F2 hybrids. Next column: P values of the two-by-two post hoc Tukey tests. In italics significant probabilities (P < 0.05), in bold highly significant probabilities (P < 0.001).
