Lorenz curves for females of Corynosoma cetaceum infecting franciscana dolphins, Pontoporia blainvillei. Cumulative worm mass, or fecundity, are plotted against cumulative percent of worm number. Diagonals represent equality of all individuals. a Curve for mass (solid line) and fecundity (broken line) for a subsample of 225 individuals collected from 15 hosts. b Curve for mass for the total female sample (n = 5368) collected from 10 hosts. c Curve for mass for each of three development stages of females: 1 (solid line), 2 (broken line) and 3 (dotted line), based on the same sample
