  1. Results for Kruskall Wallis tests and Dunn’s post hoc test, with: inter: inter-specific, dist intra: ‘distant intra-specific’, and intra: true intra-specific comparisons between populations. Values in bold are significance at the 0.01 level, after sequential Bonferroni correction for 6 (K-W) and 18 (Dunn) comparisons respectively
