Table 1 General linear model for the effect of species and sex on body mass and body water of three Ceratitis species

From: Physiological mechanisms of dehydration tolerance contribute to the invasion potential of Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae) relative to its less widely distributed congeners
