The number of mislaid eggs was positively correlated with total nests when accounting for number of breeding females at each site in (A) one-egg clutches (GLMM with Poisson distribution: total nests, n = 111, A= 0.015, SE = 0.005, F= 9.65, P = 0.002), (B) two-egg clutches (GLMM with Poisson distribution: total nests, n = 111, b = 0.013, SE = 0.006, F= 5.5, P = 0.02), and (C) both one- and two-egg clutches combined (GLMM with Poisson distribution: total nests, n = 111, b= 0.016, SE = 0.005, F= 15.46, P < 0.001).
This possibility is due to the simple form of the Laplace transform of a Poisson distribution, as well as that of the finite dimensional distribution of the ARG process.

Also, the proposed model produces networks with out-degree distributions that follow exponential and Poisson distributions. This contrasts with the out-degree distributions of several real networks in which the out-degree distribution follows a power-law.

Moreover, the number of the Dev-Txs in each cluster follows a Poisson distribution with mean [[lambda].sub.t].
The parameter of the Poisson distribution, [lambda], represents the average number of the considered rare events per unit (of time, length, etc.).
