If one or more parasitised nests were found in an annulus which had few nests dug in total, the results were pooled with those of an adjacent annulus in order to give a total of at least 10 nests before calculating the dispersal distance. The annuli were 0.2 km wide up to 2 km from the release site then 0.5 km wide thereafter (see Table 1). Aggregating the data and annuli into fewer groups with larger total numbers of nests in each had little effect on the resulting estimates of mean… CONTINUE READING
