Home range size (males) dependences on two-month rainfall for average, minimum and maximum annual rainfall. The dependences of home range size for male koalas on two-month rainfall for the average annual rainfall of 515 mm (solid curve), for the minimum annual rainfall of 450 mm (dotted curve), and for the maximum annual rainfall of 575 mm (dashed curve) in the presence of freestanding water. The statistical contrasts (differences) between these three curves are significant (with p < 0.01). The grey band shows the 95% prediction interval for the average annual rainfall. No statistically significant dependence of home range size on two-month rainfall was found for female koalas.
