Soil preferences
calcium λ = 0.0001(0.0001,0.98) 1,(0.15,1) 0.008(0,1)
potassium λ = 0(0,0) 1,(1,1) 0(0,0.01)
phosphorus λ = 0.0001(0.0001,09) 1,(0.06,1) 0.0001(0,0.16)
nitrate λ = 0(0,0) 1,(1,1) 0(0,0.004)
pH λ = 0(0,0) 1,(1,1) 0(0,0)
organic matter λ = 0.99(0.0001,1) 0.001,(0,1) 1(0.002,1)
silicon λ = 0(0,0) 1,(1,1) 0(0,0.03)

For regeneration mode the test statistic is D, for all other variables the test statistic is λ. Values shown are medians (with 2.5th and 97.5th percentiles) from 1000 trees sampled from the Bayesian posterior distribution.
