Parasite Prevalence Corresponds to Host Life History in a Diverse Assemblage of Afrotropical Birds and Haemosporidian Parasites

Table 3

Tests of statistical significance of host phylogenetic constraints on probability of parasitism. Phylogenetic effects were examined in our analyses by including nested random effects of host family, genus (within family), and species (within genus) on the probabilities of parasitism with each of the three genera of parasites. Statistical tests were likelihood ratio tests each with a single degree of freedom.
