  1. Only data from the 2010 to 2011 survey was used (189 unique individuals). The mite abundance is categorized into four levels (zero mite, 1 to 9 mites, 10 to 19 mites, and 20 mites or more). Mean mite abundance is used for repeatedly captured individuals. The logit link function is applied. The primary CJS model is φ(sex)p(.), which has sex-specific survival functions (φfemale = intfemale + βfemale × mite abundance, φmale = intmale + βmale × mite abundance) and a recapture probability function (p = intp + βp × mite abundance). A reduced CJS model, φ(.)p(.), has the constraints that βfemale = βmale and intfemale = intmale. The parameter estimates of the survival and recapture probability functions are expressed as the means followed by their 95% confidence limits in parentheses.
