Optimal generalized additive models of adult BDs per species-sex-origin combination. These results are displayed graphically in Figure 3. Only the specimen's collection day of the year with a smooth term is included as an explanatory variable here. For each origin-sex combination per species (row), sample size (n), standard error (SE), intercept, explained deviance (adjusted; R2), effective degrees of freedom (edf), log-likelihood (log(L)), second-order AIC (AICc), and the significance level of the smoothed day of the year (p-value) are provided. Despite low adjusted R2 values, p-values less than 0.05 suggest significantly non-linear patterns in BDs. Note: sample sizes do not sum to the sample sizes of each species (M. erminea = 512, M. nivalis = 847) since this analysis focuses solely on a subset of the entire data set for which we have sufficient sample sizes and variation in day of year, within a sex-origin combination.
