Table 1 Results of association between habitat type (e.g. vegetation cover PC) and different measures of colour contrast for different body patches in females (top) and males (bottom), against green and brown backgrounds. Intervals represent variation in β (estimate) across phylogenetic trees. A significant association between colouration and habitat type is considered when the intervals presented do not overlap with zero (shown in bold). Average level of contrast per patch in JNDs and standard deviation is also shown for 23 taxa in females and 26 taxa in males
