Table 1 Mean wing length, fecundity and survival of Aedes aegypti by different levels of treatment

From: Differential effects of larval and adult nutrition on female survival, fecundity, and size of the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti

Treatment Wing length Fecundity Survival
Larval nutrition
 HL 2.76 ± 0.01 SE 85.34 ± 1.75 SE 25.47 ± 1.61 SE
 LL 2.49 ± 0.01 SE 45.37 ± 2.54 SE 28.28 ± 1.74 SE
Adult nutrition
 GA 2.62 ± 0.02 SE 73.70 ± 2.33 SE 33.67 ± 1.31 SE
 PA 2.63 ± 0.02 SE 57.29 ± 3.29 SE 20.57 ± 1.72 SE
  1. Abbreviations used in the table listed as following. HL high larval nutrition, LL low larval nutriton, GA good adult nutrition, PA poor adult nutrition, SE standard error. Mean wing length is recorded to 2 decimal places in mm and measured as described in the main text. Mean fecundity is represented by the number of eggs laid. Mean survival is the number of days that the individual lived post-blood-feeding
