Table 5-4. Adjusted mean fecundity ( standard error) of insects in each of five treatment
groups estimated using body mass at first oviposition as a covariate.
Treatment Adjusted Mean Fecundity
AL 68.061 4.386a
AL-R at 5th 22.204 4.524b
AL-R at Ov 36.649 4.190bc
R 26.929 6.815bc
R-AL at 5th 42.719 + 3.579c
Abbreviations: AL = ad libitum, R = restricted. See Figure 5-1 for a description of diet
treatments. Sample sizes are the same as in Figure 5-2 for adults. Values with different
superscripts are significantly different among treatment groups according to analysis of
covariance with a Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons.
