  1. Corresponding initial saturated model given in front of each final model. ∆qAICc, difference in qAICc from the model with the lowest qAICc value; d.f., degrees of freedom; w, qAICc weight; R2, McFadden’s pseudo-R2. See “Methods” for abbreviations of variables and saturated models; H2, T2 and W2 = linear term not retained in the final model; Q(x) = a second-order orthogonal polynomial of the variable x. Terrestrial species also include semi-terrestrial taxa
