Table 5 The correlation between the numbers of substrates colonized by species of a taxon and the residuals from a 1:1 prediction of their frequency in Surprise age 7.5 yr from frequency in London 2005 and 2010. Cell values are correlation coefficient R. Significant correlations are followed by level of significance (1 tail, positive correlations expected). Organic substrates are wood, bark, and organic matter other than wood or bark. Mineral substrates are stone, soil, and charcoal.
