Table 4 Model parameters and diagnostics from our best model of mosquito counts. Means and confidence intervals are given on the log-scale, and symbols correspond to parameters in equation 1

From: Effects of seasonality and land use on the diversity, relative abundance, and distribution of mosquitoes on St. Kitts, West Indies
