From: Modelling adult Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus survival at different temperatures in laboratory and field settings

Model Median increase in AIC relative to GAM Optimal model choice (%)
( Ae. aegypti/ Ae. albopictus) ( Ae. aegypti/ Ae. albopictus)
Log-Logistic 320.40/22.620 4.4/1.5
Gompertz 304.83/0.005 2.2/21.9
Exponential 302.89/2.969 1.5/13.8
Weibull 302.90/0.023 0.7/13.3
GAM - 91.1/49.5
  1. AIC = Akaike information criterion, GAM = Generalised additive model.
