Table 3 Results of GLMMs testing the influence of animal species, sex, season and number of used tree holes on helminth prevalence

From: Are sleeping site ecology and season linked to intestinal helminth prevalence and diversity in two sympatric, nocturnal and arboreal primate hosts (Lepilemur edwardsi and Avahi occidentalis)?
