IDC stage distributions for parasites in hosts subjected to a long-day 18:6 light:dark photoperiod vs a standard 12:12 photoperiod. Infections were compared to the stage distributions of infections subjected to a standard 12 h light: 12 h dark photoperiod when sampled at midnight (which is the same ZT as the long-day infections were sampled), and at 09:00 UTC (which is the same UTC as the long-day infections were sampled). a Median parasite stage proportions (black line) and 25–75 percentiles, with whiskers 1.5 times the interquartile range and dots representing outliers, and b parasite stage distribution illustrated as mean stage proportions. Infections (n = 6) were sampled on days 5–6 PI from wild type MF1 mice
