Table 2 The mean number of mosquitoes attracted to each of nine Kenyan males and parameter estimates calculated for each individual person from the log-linear model. Calculations used person P1 as the reference standard. Ranks of attractiveness are based on the level of significance of differences in the number mosquitoes attracted by pairs of persons. N, number of replicates. s.e., standard error of the mean.

From: Host-specific cues cause differential attractiveness of Kenyan men to the African malaria vector Anopheles gambiae
