Differential response to mosquito host sex and parasite dosage suggest mixed dispersal strategies in the parasite Ascogregarina taiwanensis

Fig 2

The mean wing length of female and male mosquitoes exposed to different parasite dosages.

Both female and male mosquitoes show smaller body size when parasitized, but the relative effect for female Ae. albopictus appears greater, as evidenced by the interaction between sex and dosage (Table 2). Whiskers are bootstrapped 95% confidence intervals (1000 replicates); no confidence intervals for any points overlap.
