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

Fig 3

The mean total oocysts produced by mosquitoes exposed to different parasite dosages.

Oocyst production within microcosms increases with dosage of parasite. Total oocysts produced did not significantly vary with sex (Table C in S1 File). Both sexes received equal doses; mean values are ‘dodged’ at each parasite dosage for visibility. Whiskers are bootstrapped 95% confidence intervals (1000 replicates).
