  1. Models are arranged by increase of Akaike information criterion (AIC) and decrease of Akaike weight (w i ). Models with w i  < 0.01 are not shown. The probability associated to each fixed effect is also given; significant values are in bold. Abbreviations: HS host species, HI host individual, RI random intercept, I intensity
