Parasite Prevalence Corresponds to Host Life History in a Diverse Assemblage of Afrotropical Birds and Haemosporidian Parasites
Fixed effects in the set of 15 models and the relative support of data for these models (ΔAICC values) from AIC-based multi-model comparisons. We used these comparisons to identify life history traits associated with rates of haemosporidian parasitism of avian hosts. An “X” indicates that a given trait (column) was used as a fixed effect, categorical variable in a given model (row). For each parasite genus the model with the ΔAICC value of zero is the best-supported model.
