  1. VEG: presence (1) vs. absence of vegetation; DIST: distance; HEIGHT: height of the receiver and transmitter (reference class 0 [both devices located at ground level]: 0-0; 1 [both devices located at 1 m]: 1-1 and 2 [receiver located at 0 m and transmitter at 1 m, or vice versa]: 0-1); BMASS: presence of body mass around the receiver and transmitter (reference class 0 [without body mass]: 0-0; 1 [body mass around both the receiver and the transmitter]: 1-1 and 2 [body mass around only one device, receiver or transmitter]: 0-1)
  2. p values: p ≥ 0.1 “ns”; p < 0.1 “·”; p < 0.05 “*”; p < 0.01 “**”; p < 0.001 “***”
