Predictor-effect plots [55] for the aquatic contribution to the diet of the web weaver with a aquatic prey dry biomass per trap day, b the first SPCA axis and the diet of the ground-hunter with c in-stream pesticide toxicity in terms of logarithmic sum of the toxic unit [max sumTU] and d the second SPCA axis based on the final models. See Table 2 for loadings of variables composing the SPCA axis, indicating their relevance for the axis. Grey areas indicate 95% confidence bands for the explanatory variable. Dashes, so-called rugs, show the marginal distribution of an explanatory variable. Note that the plot only displays fitted values for the response based on the partial effect of a predictor with the other predictor held at a typical value. The original values of the response depend on multiple predictors and therefore would be misleading when included in the plot. For details see [56]
