Effect of incorporating trophic level information and different weightings on average proportion of predator species per planning unit in unique chosen area. Average proportion of predator species for all planning units is indicated by orange line; Average proportion of predator species in chosen area unique to either runs without or with trophic information is shown for each target and each weighting. Proportion of predator species for runs without trophic information are drawn with thicker solid lines. Proportion of predator species for runs with trophic information are drawn with thinner dashed lines. Trophic weighting is ratio highest to lowest with 3 being a scaling of 0.3-1, 4 being 0.25-1, 5 being 0.2-1, 6 being 0.15-1, 10 being 0.1-1, 20 being 0.05-1 and 100 being 0.01-1. a and b indicate significant difference (p < 0.001 and p < 0.05 respectively) between scenarios with the same target.
