We therefore compared the effect of innovation propensity on extinction risk in subsets of species exposed vs. not exposed to each threat. If innovation propensity limits the effects of a specific threat on extinction risk, it should decrease extinction risk in species exposed to the threat, but not in species that are not exposed. If innovation propensity does not buffer the effect of a certain threat, its effect on extinction risk should not differ between exposed and non-exposed species. Posterior effect size means, credibility intervals and species numbers are shown.
