Table 5 Comparative success of four different statistical models aiming to predict the mating status of male An. gambiae as a function of their reproductive morphology (as described in Table 2). Mating-specific success indicates the proportion of virgin (0) and once-mated males (1) that were correctly classified by each model.

From: A reliable morphological method to assess the age of male Anopheles gambiae
