[R] In fact this is a Stats question, but... "The return."

*Thanks* all those who took the time to help me (even if the "question" was not related to - the use of - R).

Now I think I can soundly make my point w/ the referee (can I use your replies? If so I intend to properly cite its use?!?).

ps - Sorry for not explaining the "biological details" of my posting: RNA/DNA is the ratio of RNA content to DNA content obtained for individual fish larvae (plus for each one I noted if it had visible prey items in the gut or not, thus the levels Prey and Empty of factor Gut); and sl is the standard length (distance from the tip of snout to the posterior extremity of the hypurals, the expanded bones at the end of the backbone that support the caudal fin, in mm) of the specimens. In the MS, I consider the relationship RNA/DNA to sl to be biologically irrelevant (due to the very low r2) although statistically significant. Furthermore, no effect of gut content upon that relationship is significant (facilitating further analysis of pooled data).
