Partitioning of variation in dung beetle communities at three spatial scales using redundancy analysis on composition, abundance and biomass.

E: environmental model, S: spatial model, constructed from MEM variables, E | S: environmental model without spatial patterns within each spatial scale, S | E: spatial model without environmental patterns within each spatial scale, R2adj: data variation explained by the model (values are in percentage), DF: degrees of freedom of model. Significant models are in bold.
