Figure 3

Swarming (maximum proportion ± SEM), according to effect of presence or absence of available sugar (20% sucrose) on small (A, C) and large (B, D) males on each night after emergence, at 27°C (A, B) or 23°C (C, D), in 80-L cages. More males with sugar access swarmed than males without (P = 0.05), starting from night 2 (A, B, C) or night 3 (D) onward. (20 males in each treatment, each replicated 4 times).
