Table 2 Estimated marginal means ± SE for body mass of offspring from first and third litters, calculated from models one and two (Table 1.), compared pairwise with Tukey’s HSD test adjusted for multiple comparisons. Significant differences are indicated in bold

From: Polymorphism of winter phenotype in Siberian hamster: consecutive litters do not differ in photoresponsiveness but prolonged acclimation to long photoperiod inhibits winter molt
