  1. Model average parameter estimates, standard errors (se), 95% confidence intervals and relative variable importance, demonstrating the effects of climatic variables and pH on antimicrobial protein activities. Relative variable importance is the sum of all AICc weights (w i in Table 1) over all models containing the explanatory variable of interest. Effect sizes have been standardized on two SD following Gelman 2008[50].
