Table 1 AIC and coefficients of models which had ΔAIC < 2 compared to the lowest AIC model for explaining the occurrence of debarking on saplings

From: Susceptible conditions for debarking by deer in subalpine coniferous forests in central Japan

  1. aCoefficient of elevation zone was calculated as a relative value when the coefficient of the low-elevation zone (2000 m) was set to 0. bCoefficient of species was calculated as a relative value when the coefficient of Abies mariesii was set to 0. c Picea jezoensis was excluded from the analysis of saplings because no P. jezoensis saplings were debarked, so it was impossible to estimate the coefficient
