Table 1 Matrix of Pearson correlation coefficients for the Gini coefficient (G), the intensity (or the number of gravid females), the mean worm position, and the standard deviation (SD) of the mean worm, per host, for females of three developmental stages of the acanthocephalan Corynosoma cetaceum in ten franciscana dolphins, Pontoporia blainvillei. Correlations in bold remain significant after the sequential Bonferroni correction
