Table 1 Descriptions of variables used in generalized linear mixed-effects models explaining Florida bonneted bat (Eumops floridanus) acoustic activity relative to a landscape gradient of burn regimes

From: Restoring historical fire regimes increases activity of endangered bats

Variable type Variable name Variable description
Response BatActivity Florida bonneted bat acoustic files recorded per night
