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). Tm, Δ, Tupper and Tbase are in C°. λ is in days-1.
