Figure 3

Aggregation response (mean ± S.E.) of T. infestans larvae to different amounts of palmitic acid (C16:0) (A), stearic acid (C18:0) (B), and hexacosanoic acid (C26:0). Values for fatty acid equivalent were: 3 μg (C16:0), 2 μg (C18:0), 0.7 μg (C26:0). The number of replicates varied between N = 12–18 for each fatty acid.
