Table 2 Partial Pearson correlation coefficients (with nominal P-values in parentheses) between the Gini coefficient, and intensity or number of gravid females [controlled for the standard deviation (SD) of mean worm], and between the Gini coefficient and SD (controlled for intensity, or the number of gravid females) for individuals of the acanthocephalan Corynosoma cetaceum collected in ten franciscana dolphins, Pontoporia blainvillei. Correlations in bold remain significant after the sequential Bonferroni correction
