Nested GLM models of fraction of QTL effect size, including only QTL controlling traits for which more than 5 QTL were detected. LL (log likelihood) values and AICc values, used to calculate AIC weights, are shown for more complex global models including all parameters, as well as models with abiotic v. biotic status removed. AIC weights indicate the relative support of the data for each of the models.
