Table 4 Climate variables and bivariate factors related to fly density and the percentage of males. Values of coefficient (r) and P-values obtained by Spearman’s correlation analysis

From: Detection of Thelazia callipaeda in Phortica variegata and spread of canine thelaziosis to new areas in Spain

  Fly density % males Tset RHset Tmax daily Tmin daily Tmean daily Tmean monthly Wind speed Rainfall monthly
Fly density r(23) = 1 r(23) = -0.44 P = 0.03* r(17) = -0.18 P = 0.4 r(17) = 0.07 P = 0.7 r(24) = 0.33 P = 0.11 r(24) = 0.45 P = 0.02* r(24) = 0.42 P = 0.04* r(24) = 0.50 P = 0.11 r(22) = 0.27 P = 0.22 r(21) = -0.16 P = 0.47
