Sexually dimorphic effects of dietary sugar on lifespan, feeding and starvation resistance in Drosophila

Figure 1. Sexual dimorphism in the response of lifespan to dietary sugar in Drosophila. (a) Survival curves of females and males fed diets with different relative amounts of sucrose (0.5x to 8xS). (b) The median lifespans (solid lines) of the same flies with first and third quartiles indicated (shaded area). For statistical analysis see Table 1.
