  1. Results of nonparametric two-way crossed Scheirer–Ray–Hare test and Mann–Whitney pairwise comparisons to test for differences in C. fornicata densities between two parallel transect with varying distance to 0 m above C.D. at four study sites (BR Beggars Reach, CO Cosheston, HA Hazelbeach, PE Pennar). Nonparametric tests were chosen due to heterogeneity in variances that could not be removed with data transformations. Significant differences are shown in bold
