Fig 5

The percent of oocysts in the adult mosquito at three parasite dosages.

Male mosquitoes had a smaller proportion of oocysts in the adult until the highest dosage, 10000 oocysts/ml, where male and female mosquitoes had the same percent of oocysts in adults. Different letters correspond to separate Tukey’s HSD tests on the ANCOVA model. Whiskers are bootstrapped 95% confidence intervals (1000 replicates). Mean points are dodged for visibility.
