significant in this experiment, there must be 95% confidence of the difference of the means, and
such confidence is equal to being over ~1.26 standard deviations from the mean, it means that for
any difference between the means to be significant, they must be over 1.26 standard deviations
apart from one another, and seeing how all the box plots in each group overlap each means. Therefore, by the data presented, there is no significant difference between any of the
recorded intervals in any of the crosses tested. Similarly to the sex-ratio scenario, had more
crosses been observed, there would have been more datapoints, resulting in more accurate,
smaller standard deviations, and possibly thereby enhancing the results, and possibly
demonstrating a difference between the times of the distinct crosses. Bilbiography: Werren, J.H. 2003. Invasion of the Gender Benders. N a tur a l H istory 112: 58-63
