  1. Bayesian estimation (\(\beta\), highest posterior density interval [HPDI], and Bayesian probabilities) for the seasonal difference (wet season minus dry season) between fecal organic matter content within a group, arranged along a decreasing synanthropy scale (principal component [PC1], association with humans: see [39]). Combined analyses for broad categories are below the horizontal lines and may include groups not already listed (e.g. for groups that had data for only one season)
