Table 2 Regression coefficients (with 95% confidence intervals (C.I.)) after arcsine square root transformation of survival proportions for the four different instars of An. gambiae s.s.. Model predictions of 50% and 0% survival are given in hours.

From: Egg hatching, larval movement and larval survival of the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae in desiccating habitats

instar Model: arcsine (√ p) = a * time + b Model predictions
a 95 % C.I. b 95 % C.I. R2 50 % survival (hours) 0 % survival (hours)
