Infection status and vector survival.
Survival curves depending on infection status at death (determined by PCR of mosquito cadavers). Lines are a spline fitted to the mean survival curve for mosquitoes with that infection status from between 6 (double infections) and 21 (uninfected) replicate cages. Shaded areas show the standard error of the mean. Mosquitoes infected with AJ had significantly lower survival rates than control mosquitoes (X2 = 5.58, p = 0.02). All other pairwise comparisons were non-significant (p>0.1). For full analysis see results text and Table F in S2 Text.
