Table 3 Association between time to emergence, diet and CD Results from post-hoc comparisons performed after a Two-Way completely randomized analysis of variance (ANOVA) of time to emergence (days post-egg hatch), diet and conspecific density

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

  Comparisons between levels Mean difference (i-j in days) P

  1. 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.
