Figure 3

Maize pollen deposition versus distance to the next maize field. Data points from field measurements 2001 to 2010 (gray/dark, data from 2001 to 2006; light blue/light, data from 2007 to 2010; N =216) and results of regression analysis (linearized power regression equation log10Y = −0.585 · log10X + 6.104, R2 = 0.709, p <0.001; power regression equation, Y = 1.271 · 106 · X−0.585; Y, deposition in n/m2; X, distance to nearest maize field in m). Central bold blue line, expected deposition; dashed lines, confidence interval for expected deposition; red solid lines (outer lines), 95% confidence intervals for single predictions. Deposition values in n/cm2 were obtained by multiplying displayed deposition values by 0.0001.
