Table 3 Pearson correlations for mosquito species with two or three ordination axes produced by nonmetric multidimensional scaling (NMS). Correlation values in boldface were significant (P < 0.005) using a Bonferroni-corrected alpha value. *Mosquito community (all species were used for the analysis); ** Vector Community (only species capable of vectoring alpha-, flaviviruses and protozoans were considered for the analysis); *** All Seasons (wet and dry seasons combined)

From: Mosquito communities and disease risk influenced by land use change and seasonality in the Australian tropics
