Mean model-averaged partial predicted responses (with 89% posterior probability intervals) of Borrelia burgdorferi prevalence among ticks (proportion of infected ticks) to six different variables: woody debris (%) (a); leaf litter volume (L/m2) (b); tick abundance (nymphs/24 h) (c); understory cover (%) (d); mouse abundance (mice per nest box per check) (e); distance to nearest road (m) (f). Overall, B. burgdorferi prevalence is predicted to increase with increasing woody debris, understory cover, mouse abundance, and distance to nearest road, while increasing leaf litter volume and tick abundance should decrease B. burgdorferi prevalence among ticks
