Appendix B. Relationship between soil predictor variables.
Table B1. Mixed model treating stand treating stand as a random effect (n = 18). Marginal R² values indicate the percentage of variation in the response variable explained by the predictor. Arrows indicate the direction of the relationship, with arrows pointing up indicating a positive effect, and arrows pointing down indicating a negative effect. P values for the coefficient is isted in parentheses. Dependent variables are listed in rows, independent variables in columns.
