Table 2 Models included in selection using Akaike’s information criterion to analyse clinging performance in Oedura geckos, O. castelnaui, O. monilis and O. coggeri. Models are arranged in increasing order of ΔAIC values and top models are in bold

From: Geckos cling best to, and prefer to use, rough surfaces
