Fig. 5

Box and whisker plot showing the numbers of larvae and nymphs collected over the 6 year monitoring period according to temperature category. Each plot shows the median, 25th and 75th percentiles, and range of questing tick numbers; outliers are shown as individual points and defined as >75th percentile by ≥1.5 times the interquartile range (IQR) or <25th percentile by ≥1.5 times the IQR. IQR is defined as 75th percentile minus 25th percentile. The observations represent individual days when ticks were collected. 50 % observations for the indicated temperature range lie within the box plot
