Revisiting the role of dissimilarity of host communities in driving dissimilarity of ectoparasite assemblages: non-linear vs linear approach.


We revisited the role of dissimilarity of host assemblages in shaping dissimilarity of flea assemblages using a non-linear approach. Generalized dissimilarity models (GDMs) were applied using data from regional surveys of fleas parasitic on small mammals in four biogeographical realms. We compared (1) model fit, (2) the relative effects of host… (More)
