Table 2: Results of the germination study comparing treatments with standard deviations in parentheses. Four treatments were performed on seeds extracted from feces: SW (scarified and washed), SNW (scarified not washed), NSW (not scarified and washed), and NSNW (not scarified and not washed). Two treatments were performed on seeds extracted from fruit: CS (control scarified), CNS (control not scarified). Treatments in bold text performed significantly better than other treatments. Means sharing the same superscript within a species do not significantly differ from each other (Tukey's HSD, ); means determined to be significantly different from all other means do not have a superscript.
