Abstract The corrected Akaike information criterion (AICc) is a widely used tool in analyzing environmental and ecological data, and it outperforms the Akaike information criterion (AIC), especially in small-size samples. To take advantage of this property, we propose a modified version of the AICc in a generalized linear model framework, referred to as the blockwise AICc (bAICc). Compared with some other information criteria, extensive simulation results show that the bAICc performs well. We also analyzed two environmental datasets, one for snail survival and the other for fish infection, to illustrate the usefulness of this new model selection criterion.
