TABLE SI. Parameter estimates (β), lower and upper 95% c.i. for β, F statistics and probabilities of significance, and generalized χ2; χ2 divided by d.f. (i.e. dispersion parameter) for alternative full models describing daily numbers of individual Acipenser fulvescens observed entering the Upper Black River, Michigan, from 2000 to 2002 and daily numbers of individuals captured at upstream spawning locations from 2001 to 2008 as a function of environmental conditions 0, 1, or 2 days before observation. Day was included to correct for intra-annual trends (i.e. slope) in the number of new migrants observed. A day × sex interaction term was included to correct for intra-annual trends (i.e. slope) in the number of new male and female migrants captured arriving upstream.
