Table 1 Summary results of the multinomial logistic regression modeling of the occurrence of DQA1 genotypes in the currently studied golden jackals after model averaging

From: Positive selection on the MHC class II DLA-DQA1 gene in golden jackals (Canis aureus) from their recent expansion range in Europe and its effect on their body mass index

  1. The reference category is the homozygous DLA-DQA1*00402 genotype, 2 is heterozygous, and 3 is homozygous for alleles DLA-DQA1*03001. All model averaged coefficients are shown along with the respective relative variable importance (RVI) values. Variables with RVI values above 0.7 are conventionally considered as a key variable of statistically meaningful importance. tf1 stands for temperature factor 1, tf2 temperature factor 2, pf precipitation factor, Lat latitude, Lon longitude. Statistically meaningful variables are shown in bold
