Table 2 Results of a stepwise multiple regression

From: Nest site selection by the hazel dormouse Muscardinus avellanarius: is safety more important than food?

Variable B Standard error t (47) p Input to adjusted R2
Number of shrub species 3.413 0.559 6.100 0.0001 0.809
Cover of hazel shrubs taller than 4 m 0.013 0.003 3.949 0.0002 0.041
Number of Norway spruce trees in canopy -0.075 0.025 -2.955 0.005 0.020
  1. These results relate indices of nestbox use by Muscardinus avellanarius with vegetation parameters in the vicinity of the nestboxes in the most parsimonious model (adjusted R2 = 0.870; F (3,47) = 112.95; p < 0.0001).
