Table 2 Association between time to pupation, diet and CD

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

  1. Results from post-hoc comparisons performed after a Two-Way completely randomized analysis of variance (ANOVA) of time to pupation (days post-egg hatch), diet and conspecific density. Diet is expressed as mg food/300 ml water whereas CD as number of larvae/300 ml water. P-values are expressed after applying a Bonferroni correction for multiple-comparisons.
