Table 3 Summary of results of the most plausible model to predict male mating tactics

From: Males of a sexually cannibalistic spider chemically assess relative female quality

Female size class Estimates ± SE Z P
Intercept (small ♀♀) −1.85 ± 0.92 −2.00 0.045*
Medium-sized ♀♀ 1.85 ± 1.16 1.60 0.111
Large ♀♀ 4.27 ± 1.88 2.28 0.025*
  1. In a Firth-corrected binary logistic regression (N = 23), we tested the effects of female size class on the probability of monogyny in males that survived the first copulation. The estimates and standard errors (SE) of the estimates are Firth bias-corrected and logit-transformed. Asterisks indicate significant values
