Table 3 

Correlation between dissimilarity matrices based on eight PCA factors (unsquared Euclidean distances), and different levels of community organisation (Jaccard's index). The correlation coefficients are followed by significance (p) values in parentheses. The pvalues were estimated by 1000 Monte Carlo randomizations of each pair of matrices. Correlations with p values >0.05 not reported. See the text and 3 to see loadings of habitat variables for the PCA factors.
