Table 1 Summary of results of ANOVA on (a) median egg-to-puparium duration, (b) arc-sine square root transformed egg-to-puparium survivorship, (c) median egg-to-adult duration, (d) arc-sine square root transformed egg-to-adult survivorship, (e) dry-weight at pupariation, and (f) dry-weight at eclosion values of all populations under LD12:12 and DD light regimes. Summary of results of ANOVA on (g) average eggs laid/female, (h) dry-weight at pre- and post fecundity assay stages, (i) log transformed fecundity per unit dry-weight loss, and (j) median longevity of virgin males and females of all populations under LD12:12
