  1. The automatic ROI tool was used to select the region used to estimate the photon radiance emitted from a group of insects and from the dissected digestive tracts on the feeding day and on days 7, 14, 21 and 28 after feeding. The data is displayed as median radiance, with minimum and maximum radiance, from each group of insects used in the analysis. Not determined (ND).
