Table 2 Regression coefficients with standard errors (SE) for the fixed effects of the two final general linear mixed models with (i) a binomial error distribution for the total number of female Culicoides spp. collected and (ii) a negative binomial error distribution for the total number of male Culicoides spp. collected

From: DNA barcoding and surveillance sampling strategies for Culicoides biting midges (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) in southern India
