Table 1 and Fig. 2 in the original publication need some change. However, there will be no change in the text and results section of Table 1 and Fig. 2. The revised version of Table 1 and Fig. 2 are displayed here.

Results of simple and partial Mantel correlations against chironomid species composition and (log transformed) TBT concentration (M tin ) and geographical distance between sampling locations (M geo )

The shared fraction was calculated as M tin,geo  − M tin where M tin,geo indicates the unique effect of organo-tin concentration (after a partial Mantel test where the effect of geographical distances was removed prior to estimating the effect tin) and M tin indicates the total effect of organo-tin concentration (including the shared component). The evaluation of statistical significance (p) was based on 999 random permutations

Fig. 2

Increasing concentration of sediment TBT is associated with chironomid species richness (a), the number of chironomid genera observed (b), and the total number of individuals (c). Pearsson’s correlation coefficients between respective variables in each panel are given (r, with p value given in the parenthesis). The dashed line indicates a fitted regression line
