Appendix D. Effects of rainfall on small mammal abundance.


Fig. D1. The strongest proximate driver of animal abundance (number unique animals captured per trap night) across all sites was the amount of rainfall at the site. Higher rainfall levels were related to higher abundance of animals (P = 0.001; F = 11.6, df = 1, R² = 0.09).
