Table 2

Differences in four macro-habitat parameters across plots. All variables were normally distributed, but not homoscedastic (Levene's test, p < 0.001), so Tamhane's T2 (a conservative pair wise comparisons test based on a t test) was used as a post-hoc multiple range test (F ⇒ F-ratio of one-way parametric ANOVA; ** ⇒ p < .005; * ⇒ p < .05; – ⇒ Not significant;).
