An error appeared in Table 4: the figures 0.000 and 0.857 were transposed in the Variable-level-model section of the Simpson’s diversity index column. The correct table appears here.
Table 4

Results of the hierarchical linear models applied to examine whether latitude affects the slope or intercept of the regression equations for \(\bar \alpha _2 \) against α3. In the analyses, both latitude and α3 were treated as fixed independent variables
