  1. The three columns represent the estimated coefficient value, standard error and the p-value for the respective covariate obtained by fitting a multiple mean regression model with sample size 808. The significant p-values are marked with a ‘*’, for a significance level of 0.05. The variable condition is a dummy variable and was coded 1 for non-saline conditions and 0 for saline conditions. a × b represents the interaction between a and b
