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

Figure 3. Sexual dimorphism in the acquisition of starvation resistance in response to dietary sugar. Starvation resistance of females and males was measured after feeding on the indicated diets for either 5 days [(a) and (b)] or 10 days [(c) and (d)]. (a) and (c) show the survival during starvation with the data summarised in (b) and (d) where medians (solid lines), first and third quartiles (shaded area) are indicated. Colour codes for (c) and (d) are shown in (a) and (b). Statistical analysis is presented in Table 3.
