Table 3 Model-averaged parameter estimates. Model-averaged parameter estimates calculated over the model set in Table 2. The response variable was the total number of Ixodes ticks in a sampling plot. The explanatory variables included: ant nest volume, ant nest presence, high vegetation cover, and litter depth. The sum of model weights (∑wi) indicates the relative importance of each parameter

From: The negative effect of wood ant presence on tick abundance
