Table 1 Median survival times of adult An. gambiae s.s. according to the temperature of the adult environment, and the temperature at which the larvae that developed into such adults had been reared

From: Temperature during larval development and adult maintenance influences the survival of Anopheles gambiae s.s.

Adult temperature (°C) Larval temperature (°C) Total number of adults exposed at the start Median adult survival (days) (95% C.I.)
23 ± 1 23 ± 1 39 ND*
27 ± 1 40 ND*
31 ± 1 24 32.0 (30, ND)
27 ± 1 23 ± 1 40 33.0 (31, ND)
27 ± 1 40 33.0 (31, ND)
31 ± 1 40 28.5 (25, 30)
31 ± 1 23 ± 1 26 22.0 (19, 25)
27 ± 1 40 25.0 (22, 28)
31 ± 1 23 26.0 (25, 30)
  1. *ND: Not determined. Median survival defines the time point at which the survivorship curve crosses 0.5, or at which 50% of the sample is expected to survive. In this case, the survival function did not cross 0.5, and the median survival cannot be calculated.
