Table 2 Alternative models (generalized linear mixed-effects models; negative binomial distribution) and predictor variables explaining Florida bonneted bat (Eumops floridanus) activity across 149 sites. Number of parameters (K), difference between Akaike Information Criteria (AIC) score of each alternative model and model with the lowest AIC score (ΔAIC), and Akaike weights (ωi) are listed for the top five models within 5 ∆AIC. All data were collected in 2015 and 2016 in South Florida, USA
