The rate of colony growth is represented by the number of days from the hibernation end date to the emergence of the 1st, 5th and 15th offspring and the number of days to the emergence of the 15th offspring from the 1st offspring, respectively, with respect to inbreeding treatment, maternal colony and the co-variate hibernation end date. Degrees of freedom are given in parentheses.
