Table 3 The effect of LARVAE and DAY on the general tendency of Drosophila larval aggregation (|Δpl|) under three environmental conditions. Analysis of variance for the effect of LARVAE and DAY on Drosophila larval distribution between food patches in three different larval environments (F-C, F-F or C-C).
