The effects of time, space and their interaction on the taxon composition in the Vír reservoir. The table shows the results of the multinomial generalised linear model (GLM), analysed in the R package, testing the effects of time (i.e. five time points), space (i.e. three stations) and their interaction term (time × space) on taxon composition (i.e. five classes resulting from the NewHybrids analyses: D. galeata, D. longispina, F1 hybrids, backcross to D. longispina and unidentified). The command "anova.multinom" was used to perform analyses of deviance.

The effects of time, space and their interaction on the clonal composition within taxa in Římov and Vír reservoirs. The table shows the results of multinomial generalised linear models, analysed in the R package, testing the effects of time, space and their interaction (as fixed factors) on clonal composition within taxa in each reservoir (i.e. on the response matrix containing the common multilocus genotypes and the "rare" category). The command "anova.multinom" was used to perform analyses of deviance.
