Univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA) results testing the effect of sex on several morphological traits of chela size for Cherax dispar

Analyses were performed on the relative size of morphological traits to chela size that was calculated as the first component derived from a principal component analysis (PCA) on the seven morphological variables (see Materials and methods for details). *Significant difference among groups taken after Bonferroni adjustment across the seven tests
