Fig. 3

Effect of blood meal hematocrit (RBC concentration) on the infection of An. aquasalis with P. vivax. The intensity of infection of each experimental group (red 15% hematocrit, green 30% hematocrit, blue 40% hematocrit) is presented in the top graph as the oocyst number per midgut (dots), the black lines represent the mean (Kruskal-Wallis H-test: χ2 = 19.090, df = 2, P < 0.0001). The infection rate is represented in the bottom graph as the percentage of P. vivax infected mosquitos (light blue pie section) (Kruskal-Wallis H-test: χ2 = 8.578, df = 2, P = 0.0093)
