Ronald H. Karlson, Sean R. Connolly, and Terence P. Hughes. 2011. Spatial variance in abundance and occupancy of corals across broad geographic scales. Ecology 92:1282–1291.

Appendix D (TABLE D1). Relative residuals (RSSE2) in variance and occupancy predictions for 15 metacommunities using variance and occupancy data, respectively. Corrected 95% bootstrap confidence intervals (CL) correspond to a rejection criterion of P = 0.003. Significant differences in the residuals are indicated in bold.
