Table 4 Ranking of factors based on their influence on recovery, longevity, and mating of TAW adults

From: Micro-CT imaging of live insects using carbon dioxide gas-induced hypoxia as anesthetic with minimal impact on certain subsequent life history traits

  Signal to noise ratio (Δ S/N)
Parameter Age Sex Exposure time Exposure regime
Recovery 0.97 (2) 0.40 (4) 9.87 (1) 0.90 (3)
Longevity ratio 0.79 (3) 1.17 (2) 3.19 (1) 0.60 (4)
Incidence of mating 0.02 (4) 5.93 (2) 6.29 (1) 1.78 (3)
  1. Δ = difference between the maximum and minimum S/N for each factor at 2 levels. Values represents delta (rank) to 2 decimal places. Factors with a higher Δ value indicate greater influence on the measured parameters. Rank 1 → 4 represents highest to least influence
