Table 3 Distance-based linear models (DistLM) for determination of environmental variables that explain assemblage variation. Variables included in the sequential analysis were Chlorophyll a, ODO, salinity, TDS, pH, temperature and depth, with only terms that remained in the best fit model presented

From: Diversity of dinoflagellate assemblages in coastal temperate and offshore tropical waters of Australia
