  1. Collections 1 to 3 are in November 2012, 4 and 5 are in December 2012.
  2. n: sample size, SD: standard deviation, CoV: Coefficient of variation.
  3. Wing size pairwise comparisons were made between uninfected and w MelPop-CLA-infected from the same collection. NS = Non significant, we also reported the p-value if less than 0.1.
