  1. Note: Median values of the number of responders to coarse phonotactic stimulation for dsxF+/+, dsxF+/− and dsxF−/− XX and XY mosquitoes, with SEM values provided in brackets. Significant differences found within a genotype between the response to 400 Hz and 100/700 Hz stimulation are starred (ANOVA: F(2,24) = 55.537, P < 0.0001)
