*With the pond as the random effect. N = 610 small ruminants.
†Bayesian information criterion.
‡Surface (hectare) centered on the smallest observed surface (1.6 hectare).
§Location of the pond: in the Ferlo bed (reference category) or outside the Ferlo bed.
¶Distance from the compound to the pond (hectometers) centered on the shortest observed distance (0.6 hectometers).
