Table 3 The results of a general and genaralized linear model predicting the influence of different factors on the prevalence or infection intensity of Digenea and Cestoda parasites in raccoons

From: Host-parasite interactions in non-native invasive species are dependent on the levels of standing genetic variation at the immune locus
