Table 1 MANOVA results on the effect of agrochemical treatments on development time to adulthood, wing length, and longevity of An. arabiensis and Cx. quinquefasciatus mosquitoes. Standardized canonical coefficients (SCC) describe the relative contribution of each response variable to significant treatment effects. Negative associations are denoted by (-)
