MOESM3 of Plasmodium infection and oxidative status in breeding great tits, Parus major

Additional file 3. Minimal adequate models of superoxide production not corrected for mitochondria quantity. RBC superoxide production was log transformed and RBC mitochondria quantity was square root transformed (ntotal = 141, nsub-adult/adult = 47/94, nfemale/male = 70/71, nuninfected/infected = 80/61). The models considered reproductive effort as A: brood size and B: clutch size. Minimal models are given in bold with intercept, as well as estimate, standard error (se), t-value and p-value for each term. Non-significant terms that were tested, are given with the p-value of the likelihood ratio test before being dropped out of the model.
