Table 5 A: GLMM exploring the effects of chick type (sired by the social or extra-pair mate) on chick multi-locus internal relatedness (IR), B: Relative variable importance given by Akaike weights (ΣAIC ω )

From: Females tend to prefer genetically similar mates in an island population of house sparrows

A. Variables Model K AICc ΔAICc ω
  IR Year 3 −231.1 0.00 0.308

   Year + chick type + year*chick type 5 −229.5 1.55 0.142
   Year + chick type 4 −229.4 1.70 0.132
   Chick type 2 −229.2 1.90 0.119
B. Variables Source of variation ΣAIC ω    
  IR Year 0.58
