Productivity and fishing pressure drive variability in fish parasite assemblages of the Line Islands, equatorial Pacific. Ecology 96:13831398. http://dx.doi.org/10.1890/13-2154.1

Appendix E. Number of individual hosts and intestines dissected from each unfished island (Jarvis, Kingman, Palmyra) and fished island (Teraina, Tabuaeran, Kiritimati), for each of the seven fish species sampled (across-islands analysis).

Table E1. (a) Number of individual hosts dissected from each unfished island (Jarvis, Kingman, Palmyra) and fished island (Teraina, Tabuaeran, Kiritimati), for each of the seven fish species sampled in 2010. We supplemented our data set with data on fish dissections from our own sampling in 2009 (indicated in dark purple shading), Wood et al. (in press; indicated with light purple shading), and Wood (unpublished data; indicated with dark blue shading). Where we lack any samples for a host–island combination, cells are shaded in gray. Where we were unable to collect a particular species because that species was absent from the fish assemblage of an island, cells are hatched. (b) Number of individual intestines dissected from each unfished island (Jarvis, Kingman, Palmyra) and fished island (Teraina, Tabuaeran, Kiritimati), for each of two herbivorous fish species sampled in 2010. We supplemented our data set with data on fish dissections from Wood et al. (in press; indicated with light purple shading). Where we lack any samples for a host–island combination, cells are shaded in gray. Both tables reproduced from Wood et al., in press.
