Steps to reproduce

We used the statistical software R version 4.0.3 (R Core Team, 2020) with the packages nlme (Pinheiro et al., 2020) and ef- fects (Fox & Weisberg, 2018, 2019) for the statistical analyses, and dplyr (Wickham et al., 2018), plyr (Wickham, 2011), and ggplot2 (Wickham, 2009) for data manipulation and plotting. Other packages too (see main text for details).
