Table 1 Distribution of treatments per experiment

From: Diet and density dependent competition affect larval performance and oviposition site selection in the mosquito species Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae)

    Conspecific density (number of larvae / 300 ml)
Rank   5 4 3 2 1
  Daily Diet (mg/300 ml) 0 10 20 40 80
1 0.0 mg 2 2 - - 2

  1. Numbers indicate the experiment in which such diet-CD combination was used: 1, Experiment 1 (impact of diet and CD on Ae. albopictus performance); 2, Experiment 2 (impact of diet and CD on female oviposition site selection). Diet and CD treatments were ranked in increasing level of quality, and the sum of both ranks used to estimate the container quality index (QI). See methods for more details.
