Table 1 P values obtained from linear mixed model analyses investigating the effects of baiting history (consistent, historically baited in both treatments before cessation of baiting in the unbaited area, or historically unbaited in both treatments before commencement of baiting in the baited area), treatment (baited or unbaited) and their interaction on overall mean (Mn) and overall median (Med) predator and prey PTI at nine sites across Australia
