The homoscedasticity assumption, as verified by the Akaike criteria, was more likely for all variables, except for the following variables: [k.
Levene tests conducted for the PII score average per product revealed the heterogeneity of the variance, showing the violation of the homoscedasticity assumption.
Finally, because first-order autocorrelation and group homoscedasticity are rejected respectively by the Wooldridge and Wald tests, the preferred model is the fixed effects model estimated by Feasible Generalized Least Squares (FGLS) or simple Fixed Effects by FGLS as in the fourth column of table 2.
Statistical analyses: The number of attacks on individuals similar and dissimilar to the holdfast and the difference between the size of male and female were compared by the Mann-Whitney test, because data did not follow homoscedasticity.
