Correlations between relative embryonic DT and other measured traits in the DGRP. a Negative relationship between egg viability and relative embryonic DT, correlation: R 2 = 0.1449, p = 0.0068; b Negative correlation between embryonic DT and startle response (R 2 = 0.108, p = 0.05). Strong positive correlation between egg viability and egg-to-adult viability, measured under c low, d medium and e high larval densities. Correlations (C: R2 = 0.279, p = 0.001; D: R2 = 0.7554, p = 1.38E-10; E: R2 = 0.3851, p = 0.0001) are shown
