  • Spearman's rank-order correlation coefficients between measures of spatial structuring of the environment (du and ds) on the one hand, and taxic rates, spatial turnover of faunas (βsim) and sampling probability (R) on the other. An asterisk indicates correlations that remain significant at P<0.05 after correction for the effects of multiple comparisons.
