TableĀ 1 Summary of treatments and rationales for the microparticle experiment

From: Ecological influences on the behaviour and fertility of malaria parasites

Microparticle concentration (%) Rationale
0 Absence of microparticles (~Newtonian fluid)
2 Microparticle density similar to RBC density in routine ookinete culture
35 Microparticle density similar to RBC density in healthy host blood
60 Microparticle density similar to RBC density in a blood meal after diuresis
