  1. The support for the 5 most important explanatory variables is shown from the AIC-based model selection table of the NIP. This support is calculated as the sum of the Akaike weights for all the models in the set that include that particular explanatory variable (see Table 1 for the acronyms of the explanatory variables). Additional file 1: Section 5 shows the results for all the explanatory variables.
