  1. Shown are standardized coefficients and their standard errors (s.e.) for variables included in the top models with ∆AICc less than 2, following model selection based on AICc. All variables were standardised and climatic variables identified as important in the best model have 95% CIs of estimated coefficients that do not overlap zero and are shown in bold. Models were ranked by ∆AICc values. NA represents variables that were not included in the model
