Table 2 Mean NIP and mean DIN for the four elevation sites on Chaumont Mountain

From: Masting by beech trees predicts the risk of Lyme disease

Site NIPa (%) NIP 95% CI DIN1b DIN1 95% CI DIN2b DIN2 95% CI
Low 15.3 15.0–15.6 2969 1882–4684 8.1 5.2–12.8
Medium 11.9 11.6–12.2 1775 1125–2800 4.9 3.1–7.7
High 10.8 10.4–11.1 983 623–1552 2.7 1.7–4.3
Top 12.7 12.3–13.1 246 156–388 0.7 0.4–1.1
  1. Values in Table 2 are presented as the means and their 95% confidence intervals (CIs). These means and 95% CIs were calculated from linear models that only contained the explanatory factor of elevation site.
  2. aThe NIP is the percentage of I. ricinus nymphs infected with B. burgdorferi s.l..
  3. b The DIN is the number of questing B. burgdorferi s.l.-infected I. ricinus nymphs per 100 m2. The DIN is given as the total for the whole year (DIN1) or the daily average (DIN2). DIN1 is calculated by multiplying the DON by the NIP. DIN2 is calculated by dividing the DIN1 by 365 days.
