‘frequency of adaptations by trait in lab-reared insects’

frequency of adaptations by trait in lab-reared insects

This chart illustrates adaptations in laboratory-reared insects, divided by the general type of adaptation. Life-history adaptations (e.g., number of eggs, speed of development) were the most prevalent, and most of these were positive adaptations, meaning that the insects’ fitness increased as a result.
