Relationship between life-history tradeoffs and ND5 deletion frequency. Linear regression of Spearman's correlation coefficients (ρ) between early fecundity and total lifespan for each C. briggsae isolate on isolate-specific ND5 deletion level. Slope (SE) = -0.0074 (0.0029), p = 0.036. Isolates are grouped as follows: zero deletion isolates ED3092 = open green triangle and ED3101 = filled green triangle (overlaps ED3092); low deletion isolates EG4181 = gold open square, JU726 = gold filled square, PB800 = orange open square, AF16 = orange filled square; and high deletion isolates VT847 = lavender filled circle, HK104 = purple open circle and HK105 = purple filled circle.
