[…] used to map households and malaria infections detected throughout the surveys, which were collected using a hand-held GPS receiver (Garmin GPSmap62sc) and maps were constructed with spatial data from DIVA-GIS [] and using OpenStreetMap background with the OpenLayers plugin in QGIS 2.16.0. Reverse-catalytic conversion models were used to fit age-seroprevalence curves, using maximum likelihood metho […]

[…] hermal range of each locality sampled, thermal data (averages 1950–2000) were obtained from the Worldclim online database at 1 km2 resolution (Hijmans, Cameron, Parra, Jones, & Jarvis, ). The program DIVA‐GIS (Hijmans, Guarino, & Rojas, ) was used to georeference and map salamander localities. Data were then extracted for the bioclimatic variable Bio 7 (temperature annual range), which represents […]
