Table 3 WAIC table of best models. Variables in the model set are coarse woody debris (CWD), leaf litter volume (litter), distance to the nearest road (dist. Road), mouse abundance in fall (mice), total understory cover (total cover), and nymphal tick capture rate (tick abundance). Field headings refer to the effective number of parameters (pWAIC), the difference between WAIC estimates for each model and the top-ranked model (ΔWAIC), the Akaike weight (Weight), the standard error of the WAIC estimate (SE), and the standard error of ΔWAIC value (ΔSE)
