Fig. 6

Mosquito reproduction and survival in response to perturbations of host blood quality (Experiment 2). Shown are Kaplan–Meier curves for the time taken to lay (a), mean ± SE clutch size (b), and Kaplan–Meier curves for survival (c). Mosquitoes that did not lay are omitted from b and c. Lines represent time to lay event (a) and survival estimates with 95% confidence intervals in shading (c). AM indicates a blood feed in the morning at 09:00 GMT (ZT 2) and PM a feed in the evening at 21:00 GMT (ZT 14). Anaemia was induced by P. chabaudi malaria infection, but the parasites were not infectious to mosquitoes
