Table 4 Correlations between metabolism, behaviour and survival

From: Influence of host nutritional condition on post-infection traits in the association between the manipulative acanthocephalan Pomphorhynchus laevis and the amphipod Gammarus pulex

Factor rho n P

Vair-infected 0.015 23 0.95

  1. Spearman correlations between metabolic rate and behavioural scores, and between survival and behavioural scores (second behavioural round), for each infection status (individuals infected with the Vouge or the Vair population of parasites, and control individuals). When grouping the two infected groups, correlations were still not significant
