  1. Within each period, we show the list of models up to the first one with a ΔAICc > 2, and the global (saturated) model
  2. Year, linear effect of year; Tmean, mean temperature; Tmin, minimum temperature; Prec, precipitation; Null; null model with a constant intercept; AICc, small-sample size corrected Akaike values; ΔAICc, difference in relation to the Akaike value of the first model
