Multiple regression results for analyses of the relationship between the two principal components (PC1 and PC2) describing host life history and reservoir competence for three tick-borne pathogens.

The correlation coefficients for each independent variable (b), corresponding t-value (*P≤0.05), and whole model R-square values are given. “Huang et al. variables” refers to the life history traits used by Huang et al. [22], whereas “All variables” refers to the larger data set.
