  1. For each model, the value of deviance, number of parameter (np), the corrected Akaike’s Information Criterion with quasi-likelihood adjustment (QAICc) and the QAICc-deviation to the best model (ΔQAICc) are given. For all models an over-dispersion factor ĉ = 1.192 was used. Model notation: Φ, survival probability; p, re-encounter probability; +, additive effect; ·, interaction; tag, radio-tagged/color marked; type, four categories of radiated power.
