  1. The best fitting model included those terms shown in bold text; for AIC values of the best candidate models tested see Additional file 2.
  2. 1Categorical effect (yes, no); reference category was no anthropogenic influence. 2Categorical effect representing whether the mean DPL was calculated from >12 months study, <12 months, unknown. 3Standard deviation in rainfall across months. 4The frequency of GPS fixes taken per hour to calculate DPL.
