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

Fig 4

Two approximations of mean parasite per capita growth rate under different parasite doses to mosquito hosts.

Parasite growth rate declined significantly regardless of which growth rate type, including oocysts from the male mosquito (rp) or not including them (rm) was used, suggesting an effect of density on parasite growth. Colored letters correspond to separate Tukey’s HSD tests on ANOVA models of each growth rate approximation. Whiskers are bootstrapped 95% confidence intervals (1000 replicates). Mean points are dodged for visibility.
