Extended Data Fig. 1

The effect is considered significant when its credibility interval (CI) does not overlap zero. Extinction risk (ordinal, from 1 = LC to 5 = CR) was modelled so that a negative effect of, for example, innovativeness, means that innovative species have a lower risk of extinction, and population trend (ordinal, from 1 = decreasing to 3 = increasing) was modelled so that a positive effect of, for example, innovativeness, means that innovative species are more likely to have increasing populations. All parameters are in the same model which also includes phylogeny and geographic region as random factors. Error bars are the 95% CIs estimated by MCMCglmm.
