PIv table has incorrect values

Posted by vmatzek on 04 Dec 2012 at 16:25 GMT

To quantify trait plasticity, I calculated a plasticity index (PIv) [32] as the difference between the maximum and minimum values of the trait mean, divided by the maximum value, for each species.

Due to a production error by PLOS ONE, Table 4 containing the PIv values was reproduced without decimal points. The values should all be between zero and 1. For instance, the first value in the table that reads as 133±016 should read 0.133±.016.
