Adult Lifespan (days)
Figure 5-9. Relationships between realized fecundity and cumulative intake during the
reproductive lifespan (a) and the duration of adult lifespan (b) for all insects that laid
eggs (n = 58) as determined by least squares linear regression. The regression in a is
significant (F1,56 = 276.00, p < 0.0001) with an adjusted R2 value of 0.828. The
regression in b is also significant (F1,56 = 25.67, p < 0.0001) with an adjusted R2 value
of 0.302. Abbreviations: AL = ad libitum, R = restricted. See Figure 5-1 for a
description of diet treatments.
