Camille Melin, Cindy Huchery, M. Julian Caley, Mark G. Meekan, and Corey J. A. Bradshaw. 2010. Reef size and isolation determine the temporal stability of coral reef fish populations. Ecology 91:3138–3145.

Appendix D (TABLE D1). Summary of generalized linear model (GLM) comparisons using Akaike’s information criterion corrected for small sample sizes (AICc). Response variables include reef area (AREA) and reef isolation (ISO). Predictors include longitude (lon) and latitude (lat). Shown are the number of parameters (k), model maximum log-likelihood (LL), change in AICc (?AICc), AICc weight (wAICc) and the percent deviance explained (D). D is a measure of the structural goodness-of-fit of the model. Model sequences are ordered by increasing AICc.
