Sensory clones per ear | Observed (O) | Expected (E) |
---|---|---|

0 | 24 | 10.5 |

1 | 11 | 17.4 |

2 | 10 | 14.4 |

≥3 | 10 | 12.7 |

This analysis tested the hypothesis that the presumed clones did result from single infection events following the Poisson distribution (see Table 1 for statistical procedure). These data are inconsistent with the hypothesis for 2 df using the χ

^{2}test for goodness of fit (χ^{2}= 21.6, 0.001 >*p*); therefore we must reject the hypothesis.
