Table 1 Degrees of freedom (df), log-Likelihood (log(L)), AICc, ΔAICc (AICcmodel − AICcmin model), and AICc w (AICc weight) for each linear model in the conversion analysis ordered in descending fit (best-fitting model at the top)

  1. The response variable for each model is the log10-transformed conversion rate. “Parasite schedule” refers to parasites either in-synch or out-of-synch with the host, and “donor photoschedule” corresponds to parasites taken from donor mice kept in either the standard or reversed light:dark schedule. The null model includes only “mouse” as a random effect
