Fig. 8

Mosquito reproduction and survival in response to malaria infection (Experiment 3). Shown are Kaplan–Meier curves for the time taken to lay (a), mean ± SE clutch size (b), and Kaplan–Meier curves for mosquito 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 10:00 GMT (ZT 3) and PM a feed in the evening at 20:00 GMT (ZT 13). Approximately 95% of infected mosquitoes were parasitized with P. berghei whereas control mosquitoes fed on uninfected, healthy hosts
