Model B tested the effect of diet on fecundity tolerance
Factor F-value p-value
Uninfected fecundity 3.12 0.078
Load 15.08 <0.001
Diet 35.1 <0.001
Day 44.22 <0.001
Load*Day 2.1 0.078
Diet*Load 0.14 0.709
Diet*Day 0.36 0.837
Load*Diet*Day 1.21 0.307

The response variable is Infected Fecundity. Genotype is a random factor in the model. Load, Diet, and Day predict Infected Fecundity. Diet does not affect fecundity tolerance (Diet*Load). Day post-infection marginally predicts fecundity tolerance (Load*Day).
