otherwise identical, the A individuals had some factor inducing a larger female percentage; also,
looking at the brood sizes for both, it is also clear that there was a significantly reduced brood
size for the AxA cross. Together, both these factors strongly suggest that the AxA cross had
involved male killing, which would induce both effects, and together with the suspected
cytoplasmic incompatibility in the Male A and Female B cross, the data seems to suggest that the
individuals of Strain A are infected with Wolba chi a , while those from Strain B are uninfected.
From the ANOVA table, however, we see that there is only an approximately 84% and
approximately .89% chance that the observed differences between the number of males, and
between the number of females are real and not just coincidence, respectively; moreover, we also
see that there is only a 61% chance that the differences in the sex ratios are also real and not
coincidence. Based on these numbers and the 95% confidence standard established at the
beginning, there is not enough evidence to prove a definite correlation between t...
