  1. In this Cormack-Jolly-Seber approach, monthly survival (Φ) and recapture (p) probabilities are assessed depending on hair cortisol concentration (HCC), general body condition (measured as scaled mass index, SMI) and patterns of parasitism (multiple species infection: mult; parasite morphotype richness: rich; overall prevalence: prev). The basic model (in italic) and models containing covariates are shown with the number of parameters (K), the deviance (DEV), the adjusted AIC for small sample size (AICc), the difference between the AICc of the top model and a given model i (Δ i ) and the Akaike weights (w i )
