Additional file 1: Table S1 and Model S1:

Model S1 tests for genetic variation in fecundity tolerance. The response variable (Infected Fecundity) is corrected by the number of females that were alive at the end of the 24-hour period. The results from this model are displayed in Table S1.

Additional file 2: Figure S1:

No detected cost of defense as uninfected fecundity. Cost of defense measured as the sum of uninfected fecundity (CO2 control females) in the first three days after CO2 exposure correlated with proportion alive three days post infection, normalized infected fecundity in the acute phase of the infection, and bacterial load at 24 hours after infection on the low- and high-sugar diets. The square, red points represent the genotypes that experienced very high mortality after infection. None of these correlations were significant.
