Table 2 SIMPER and ANOSIM results for the pooled data of bird feeding functional group between habitat pairs among the four habitat types (viz. Hg, Lf, Ew, and Pl) are presented

From: A study of composition and diversity variation of avifauna along with different types of agroforestry system in Kibet town, Southern Ethiopia

  1. Dissimilarities between pairs of groups and bird feeding guild contributions are indicated. The average dissimilarity is the contribution of each feeding guild to the dissimilarity between the two groups according to Bray-Curtis similarity. Contribution % indicated the contribution of each feeding guild to the group pair dissimilarity in percentage values. Cumulative % indicates the cumulative value of the contribution of each feeding guild to the dissimilarity. Only functional feeding groups that contributed the most (> 10%) to the dissimilarity are shown
