Abnormality rates in different localities. The original data for these graphs were presented in Supplementary Information of the original paper . (A) Abnormality rates of adult samples field-collected in May (blue-green) and September (pink) 2011 in seven localities. With the exception of Mito (considered an outlier), the abnormality rates increased from May 2011 to September 2011. (B) Total abnormality rates of the F1 generation from the May and September field-caught parents in five localities. In all localities, the abnormal rates increased from May 2011 to September 2011. (C) Scatter plot to determine a possible relationship between the latitude of the collection locality and the abnormality rate in the adults in the field-caught May samples (the P generation) (r = 0.34, df = 8, p = 0.34). (D) Scatter plot to determine a possible relationship between the latitude of the collection locality and the total abnormality rate of the F1 generation from the May samples (r = −0.027, df = 6, p = 0.95). (E) Similar plot for the field-caught September samples (the P generation) (r = 0.70, df = 6, p =0.056). (F) Similar plot for the F1 generation from the September samples (r = 0.79, df = 4, p = 0.064).
