M | S | |||||
logit | probit | log-log | logit | probit | log-log | |
CONC. | 60.26 | 59.23 | 59.24 | 55.71 | 55.59 | 107.29 |
log(CONC.) | 141.41 | 166.22 | 108.86 | 27.42 | 27.73 | 33.62 |
All models have a binomial errors structure but differ in the scale of the explanatory variable (CONC., i.e. ammonia concentration, linear vs. log-transformed), or the link function of the linear predictor (logit vs. probit vs. complementary log-log). The minimal adequate model for each taxon, i.e. that having the lowest AIC, is shown in bold.
