Table 4 Results of testing fixed-effects of aridity class variable using generalized linear mixed-effects (GLMM) on number of local valuation criteria cited by agro-pastoralists for (I) rainy season (CriRS), (II) dry season (CriDS) and (III) cattle (Cricattle), while aridity class and educational background of local agro-pastoralists influenced (IV) goats (Crigoats) and (V) sheep (Crisheep) as metric of regional-level variance. Detailed corresponding follow-up post hoc tests for the analysis of deviance results using Wald chi-square (χ2) tests were also calculated
