Table A1. Results from neighborhood analyses considering the effects of the density and frequency of neighbors on Solanum carolinense damage at three spatial scales. Using spatial maps of the full experiment, we considered "small" neighborhoods (plants within a 25 cm radius circle around each S. carolinense), "medium" neighborhoods (plants within a 1 m radius circle around each S. carolinense), and "large" neighborhoods (plants within a 4 m radius circle around each S. carolinense). AIC values indicate that neighborhoods at 1m best explained variation in S. carolinense damage. Models with different letters in superscript were significantly different based on log-likelihood ratio tests.
