Effects of larval nutrition on parasite dynamics in midgut (oocyst) and salivary gland (sporozoite) stages. a. Prevalence of oocysts (dark-colored bars) and sporozoites (light-colored bars) in both treatments. There is no significant difference between low and high food treatment individuals for oocysts (p = 0.164, GZLM) or sporozoites (p = 0.944, GZLM). Error bars represent the 95% confidence intervals for mean values. b. Infection load for each treatment as quantified by oocyst intensity in infected individuals. Treatments are significantly different from one another (p < 0.001, GZLM). Error bars represent the 95% confidence intervals for mean values. c. Relationship between oocyst intensity and sporozoite production (Plasmodium genomes per midgut). Both oocyst intensity and total genomes are log-transformed for clarity in visualization. Treatments are significantly different from one another (p < 0.001, GZLM).
