Table 1 Summary of statistical analyses of lesser kestrel foraging movement variables

From: A few long versus many short foraging trips: different foraging strategies of lesser kestrel sexes during breeding

Level of Analyses Response Variable Predictors Tested Correction Factor Random Factors Error Distribution/Link Function
Daily Distance traveled Sex * Phenological period, GPS sampling frequency Individual, Year, Breeding colony Gaussian/Identity
# Foraging trips Poisson/Logarithmic
Colony attendance (arcsine-square-root) Gaussian/Identity
Nestling period (daily) Distance traveled Sex * Eldest chick age, Brood size Gaussian/Identity
# Foraging trips Poisson/Logarithmic
Colony attendance (arcsine-square-root) Gaussian/Identity
Foraging Trip Duration (logarithm) Sex * Phenological period, Gaussian/Identity
Distance (logarithm) Gaussian/Identity
Maximum distance (logarithm) Gaussian/Identity
Probability of perching bout Binomial/Logit
Total perching time (logarithm) Gaussian/Identity
Body condition Body mass Sex * Day-of-year Gaussian/Identity
