Table 3 Relationships between the egg size-clutch size allocation strategy (higher value means larger egg size with small clutch size) and 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
