Sin Nombre virus infection status of sites in the Walker River Basin: canonical discriminant function analyses for Status 1 and Status 2.

aThe canonical correlation and its significance level define the overall association between infection status and the indicator variables.
bCanonical loadings for each indicator variable indicate their relative importance in producing a significant overall canonical correlation.
cNDVI = Vegetation density
dNDVI Std. = uniformity of vegetation density
eStreams = distance to nearest mapped stream or body of water
