Table 1 Difference tests for the number of association links and effect sizes for insect pest species among five parts of plant hosts (i.e., leaves, roots, seeds and fruits, trunks, and twigs). Difference represents the minus values of mean number of association links and effect sizes between two specific parts of plant hosts (Part1 minus Part2). The results of this table were shown based on the pairs of two specific parts of plant hosts
