Table 4 Summary of the best GAMM model estimating the association between wing length, diet and conspecific density

From: Diet and density dependent competition affect larval performance and oviposition site selection in the mosquito species Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae)

   Fixed terms Smooth terms
Experiment Parameter Estimate SE Z P Structure DF P
1 Intercept 2.603 0.018 201 <0.001 f(Diet ~ CD)* 8 <0.001
2 Intercept 1.897 0.227 18 <0.001 f(Diet ~ CD) 5 <0.001
  1. * Represents the structure of the smoothing term: f(D) only Diet is significant, f(C) only conspecific density is significant, f(Diet ~ CD) the non-linear association between diet and conspecific density is significant.
