Table 2 The best supported mixed effects model to estimate detection probability

From: Acoustic telemetry detection probability and location accuracy in a freshwater wetland embayment

Factor Coefficient Standard error z-value p-value
Intercept − 1.29 0.43 − 3.01  < 0.001
Distance 50 m − 0.42 0.46 − 0.91 0.36
Distance 100 m − 1.08 0.48 − 2.26 0.02
Distance 200 m − 2.77 0.64 − 4.32  < 0.001
158-dB transmitter 0.77 0.36 2.10  < 0.04
Within vegetation 1.80 0.38 4.74  < 0.001
  1. Coefficients (estimates) and standard error of each of the factors in the best supported binomial mixed effects model with logit transformation to estimate detection probability using an active tracking unit (AICc = − 202.13, ΔAICc=0). Coefficients indicate log of odds ratios. compared to the first case of that factor: the distances are all compared to the distance of 25 m, the 158-dB transmitter is compared to the 152 dB and within vegetation is compared to outside of vegetation.
