Table 4 has incorrect values

No significant difference in the plasticity index, PIv, between the groups of invasive species and non-invasive species was apparent for any trait, after correction for multiple comparisons (Table 4).

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.
