Table 3 The generalized linear mixed model of Apodemus semotus reproduction

From: The effects of mite parasitism on the reproduction and survival of the Taiwan field mice (Apodemus semotus)

Effect Num DF Den DF F P
Sex 1 65 1.81 0.18
Season 2 65 10.7 <.0001
Mite abundance 2 65 5.19 0.008
Sex × season 2 65 6.71 0.002
Sex × mite abundance 2 65 0.93 0.40
Season × mite abundance 4 65 0.51 0.73
  1. The mite abundance is categorized into three levels (0 to 9 mites, 10 to 19 mites, and 20 mites or more). The seasons are spring (April and June 2011, June 2012), summer (August 2011, July, August, and September 2012), and winter (December 2010 and February 2011). Due to model convergence issue, the three-way interaction (sex × reproduction × mite abundance) is not included. Significant results are in italics.
