  1. Logit 1 represents the logistic link function for chamois vs. ibex core foraging areas, logit 2 the logistic link function for chamois vs. red deer core foraging areas. Coefficients of the parameters (Coeff) for plant biomass rescaled (BiomRS = fresh weight of plant biomass/100 (g.m−2)), plant nitrogen content (N (%)) and their interaction (BiomRS:N), standard errors (SE), Wald Z-statistic values (z) and corresponding p-values (p) are indicated.
