Table 2: Results of general linear model relating the number of parasitic lycaenid species associated with an ant genus to its species richness (log-transformed), ecological prevalence, geographical distribution, and importance in nonparasitic lycaenid-ant associations (log-transformed). Given are standardized regression coefficients β, and the and scores for each variable. SS: sum of squares; MS: mean of squares. Overall model fit: R = 0.5394, , ; .
