Table 3 Summary mortality parameters for males and females for each of N replicate cages.

From: An experimental test for indirect benefits in Drosophila melanogaster

Sex Milieu N (duds/studs) ln α (duds ± SE/studs ± SE) β (duds ± SE/studs ± SE)
females mixed sex 8/8 -9.08 ± 0.47/-9.25 ± 0.34 0.151 ± 0.010/0.153 ± 0.009
females single sex 8/7 -10.71 ± 0.22/-10.43 ± 0.66 0.164 ± 0.005/0.156 ± 0.012
males mixed sex 8/8 -11.14 ± 0.60/-11.28 ± 0.057 0.190 ± 0.013/0.197 ± 0.012
males single sex 8/8 -10.94 ± 0.53/-9.81 ± 0.33 0.187 ± 0.011/0.153 ± 0.008
  1. Mean (± SE) Gompertz mortality parameters as fit by WinModest [91]. α represents baseline mortality and β represents the rate of increase of mortality with age (senescence).
