In the published paper (Bebbington et al.) a panel in the panel plot of Fig. is duplicated and the confidence intervals in Fig. are excluded. The corrected figures are provided below. The results and conclusions published originally are unaffected. (Figure presented.) Relationship between standardized individual homozygosity (graphs a) and c)) or standardized maternal homozygosity (graphs b) and d)) and relative telomere length of juveniles born in years of high and low food availability, using raw data. In the left-hand plots, food availability was split into a factor according to the median value for visual clarity, but was modelled as a continuous variable. Right-hand plots display the conditional effect of homozygosity on RTL, across the range of food availability values. The value on the y-axis indicates the direction of the homozygosity effect on RTL, given the value on the x-axis. Bars represent 95% confidence limits. (Figure presented.) Relationship between (a) standardized individual homozygosity and (b) standardized maternal homozygosity and relative telomere length in adult Seychelles warblers. Points represent raw data, lines represent fitted values (linear regression), and shading represents credible intervals.
