Table 2 Output of the models describing the relationship between nymph density and environmental determinants including deer density, each investigating the data at a different scale: (i) observation level; (ii) transect level; and (iii) site level

From: Sampling scale and season influence the observed relationship between the density of deer and questing Ixodes ricinus nymphs
