Table 2 Comparisons of the effect of breeding stage on overall mosquito abundance using consecutive contrasts for Poisson GLMMs. The reported values show the mean differences in abundance between the corresponding breeding stage pairs (see also Figs. 2a, 3a)

From: West Nile virus host-vector-pathogen interactions in a colonial raptor
