Proportion of explained variance in a mixed-effects model

I do not know if this has been asked before, but I do not found anything about it. My question is if anyone can provide a good reference to learn how to obtain the proportion of variance explained by each one of the fixed and random factors in a mixed-effects model.


I can provide some references:
