  1. Notes: Models were ranked in terms of the difference between a given AIC score and that with the lowest AIC score (minAIC): ΔAIC=AIC-min(AIC). K represents the number of parameters in each model
  2. *Two variables with full factorial interaction comprised of main effects and interaction terms; “:”, cases where only the interaction term is evaluated
