From: Evaluating the biological effectiveness of fully and partially protected marine areas

All MPA case-studies included
Moderator variable N oMPAs Slope [95% CI] Q M, p-val
MPA age (year) 16 −0.03 [−0.06 → -0.003] QM = 4.57, p = 0.03
Log10 (size) (km2) 17 −0.07 [−0.25 → 0.11] QM = 0.60, p = 0.44
Min. Distance (km) 14 0.007 [−0.05 → 0.06] QM = 0.06, p = 0.81
