Miscellaneous data formatting conventions: Please follow the following recommendations when presenting data in text, figures or graphs.

Standard deviations and standard errors should be expressed as mean (SD), not mean ± SD.

Composite units of measurement should be expressed as (for example) g·L-1 or mL·kg-1·min‑1, not g/L or mL/kg/min

Please use a space between symbols like <, >, ≤, ≥. Thus (for example) > 25, not >25.

Please use decimal points and not commas in decimals. For example: 2.5, not 2,5.

Numbers greater than 999 should contain commas. For example: 1,000 or 25,300,000.

Please leave a space between a number and unit of measurement. For example: 25 msw

Please italicise n when used to indicate number and P when used to indicate P-values

Please leave spaces in expressions like n = 25 or P < 0.05 (not n=25 or P<0.05).

For number ranges please use an en dash without spaces. For example: 17−420. This also applies to page ranges when citing references.

Percent signs should immediately follow a number without a space. For example: 51% not 51 %.
