Two approximations of mean parasite per capita growth rate under different parasite doses to mosquito hosts.

<p>Parasite growth rate declined significantly regardless of which growth rate type, including oocysts from the male mosquito (r<sub>p</sub>) or not including them (r<sub>m</sub>) was used, suggesting an effect of density on parasite growth. Colored letters correspond to separate Tukey’s HSD tests on ANOVA models of each growth rate approximation. Whiskers are bootstrapped 95% confidence intervals (1000 replicates). Mean points are dodged for visibility.</p>
