Table 1 A summary AICc table for generalized linear mixed models that considered both host ages simultaneously and an age*WNV serostatus interaction effect

From: An inverse association between West Nile virus serostatus and avian malaria infection status

  1. Models with ΔAICc < 3.0 are shown. However, when only one model had a ΔAICc < 3.0, the next best model was listed for comparison. Abbreviations are as follows: mon = month of capture, yr = year of capture, age = age class, wnv = WNV serostatus (seropositive, seronegative). Species was a random effect in all models tested.
