jvs1370-sup-0001-AppendixS2.docxWord document24KAppendix S2. Effects of a randomization of C, S and R scores on pls models. The box plots show the distributions of coefficients of determination (R2) in 100 permutations. In the left plot (A), underlying CSR scores were weighted means with weights corresponding to original cover values. In the right plot (B) the CSR scores were derived from log-transformed cover values. The dotted, horizontal lines indicate the R2 in the original models without randomization of CSR scores. (a) All scores randomized; (b) randomized scores of species with original cover values lower than 5%; (c) randomized scores of species with original cover values higher than 5%.
