Oocyst burden and gametocyte infectiousness do not vary between morning and evening. Mosquito blood meals occurred when both infected mice and mosquitoes were experiencing their morning (10:00 UTC; ZT3) or their evening (20:00 UTC; ZT13). Shown are (a) median oocyst burdens (black line; n = 90) and 25–75 percentiles, with whiskers 1.5 times the interquartile range and dots representing outliers or (b) mean oocyst burdens (points; individuals grouped by time-of-day of transmission) with lines indicating non-significant (NS) linear regressions for illustration of trends (SEM in shading; n = 6)
