C. E. Cáceres, S. R. Hall, M. A. Duffy, A. J. Tessier, C. Helmle, and S. MacIntyre. 2006. Physical structure of lakes constrains epidemics in Daphnia populations. Ecology 87:1438–1444.

Appendix A (Table A1). Habitat characteristics for the 18 lakes included in this study, listed in order of increasing Fee's probability. Total phosphorus values are an average of 3–8 years of spring values. Fee's probability and host densities were calculated as the average August–September values. Lakes that do not stratify thermally have a Fee's probability of 1.
