Table 1 Effect of different irradiation doses on median (± SE) survival times of An. arabiensis males. Log-rank tests compared treatments with the control. Survival time was estimated from Kaplan-Meier survival analysis (details see text).

From: Radiation-induced sterility for pupal and adult stages of the malaria mosquito Anopheles arabiensis
