Variances of estimates are in brackets. Estimates are given for each of the four first cohorts. A cohort i corresponds to a group of mosquitoes from the original batch that have laid their eggs on night i. The overall mean was computed with all data including all the mosquito cohorts (see text). T_{m}, Δ, T_{upper }and T_{base }are in C°. λ is in days^{1}.
