Figure 4

Important predictor variables describing variation in sexual signals. Response curves of input variables retained as significant predictors of variation in the full model of (a) plumage hue and (b) male tail length. Maximum height is indicative of the relative importance of each input variable, and the slope indicates the predicted rate of change in the response variable as a function of the predictor variable. Response curves for models of morphometric traits are not shown.
