  1. Source indicates the article and table within such article used for data extraction. Site describes single (adjacent) or multiple (non-adjacent) sampling sites in a given location. Values of the estimated C-score are the values calculated from the data, and Mean ± Variance are the results from the simulations. The values of p < exp and p > exp indicate the probability that the C-score value is significantly smaller (indicating aggregated pattern) or larger (segregated pattern) than that expected by random, with a p-value < 0.05 indicating statistical significance. When none of the p-values is below the threshold of 0.05 the pattern is random. Column "pattern" indicates the interpretation of the pattern.
