Decision tree model of Bml infection in the studied population. The decision tree model consists of predictors chosen according to their statistical significance, thereby allowing the detection of interactions with the previously selected variable (PCR-confirmed Bml-infected dogs). There are six terminal nodes that show a higher risk of infection with Bml according to the study area, dog population studied, age (years) and habitat (independent variables). Nodes 7 and 8 indicate a higher risk of Bml infection and nodes 4, 6, 9 and 10 a lower risk of Bml infection
