Table 1 Relationships between egg size and clutch size, female body mass, laying date, apparent nest survival rate and temperature variables in four populations of two congeneric plovers (PGLMM)

From: The allocation between egg size and clutch size depends on local nest survival rate in a mean of bet-hedging in a shorebird
