  1. x: p-value of the GCT is > 0.05, meaning that the time series for C. puteana cannot be used to predict the corresponding series for R. solani and/or vice versa (= time series are different). x: p-value < 0.05 for the MWT, meaning that the median difference between two corresponding time series is not equal to zero (= time series are different). The GCT and the MWT for the environmental condition at 25 °C and 80% RH are highlighted for the sake of comparison with Fig. 3.
