Table 2 Summary of the experimental design for simulations, which consisted of seven scenarios

From: Simulated dynamics of southern cattle fever ticks (Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus) in south Texas, USA: investigating potential wildlife-mediated impacts on eradication efforts

Scenario number Species present Species treated
1 Cattle, white-tailed deer, and nilgai None
2 Cattle None
3 White-tailed deer and nilgai None
4 Cattle, white-tailed deer, and nilgai Cattle
5 Cattle, white-tailed deer, and nilgai Cattle and white-tailed deer
6 Cattle, white-tailed deer, and nilgai Cattle and nilgai
7 Cattle, white-tailed deer, and nilgai Cattle, white-tailed deer, and nilgai
  1. Three scenarios involved different combinations of host species in which no eradication schemes were applied. Four scenarios involved different eradication schemes in which all three host species were present
