  1. Significant Pagel’s λ p-values (< 0.05, in bold) indicate phylogenetic bias in the distribution of linear regression residuals; and only when Pagel’s λ is significant, were phylogenetically-corrected regression results accepted for interpretation. The p-values of regressions indicated by Pagel’s λ test (either linear for non-significant λ, or phylogenetic for significant λ) are also in bold when significant to indicate which result was accepted for interpretation. Individual species ranges of depth, latitude and longitude can be found in Table S2
