posted on 2020-03-10, 14:42 authored by Christopher W. Weldon
Tables detailing the initial condition, desiccation and starvation resistance, dehydration tolerance, and body composition (carbohydrates, glycogen, lipids, and protein) of adult marula fruit flies, Ceratitis cosyra. Data are arranged according to larval diet (low yeast or high yeast), adult diet (none, sugar, or sugar + hydrolysed yeast), and sex (female or male) of each fly, as well as the stress experienced by the fly (desiccation or starvation).
