Emergence patterns of parental strains, hybrids, and backcrosses of two populations of Clunio marinus. (A) Diurnal rhythm plotted as the fraction of individuals that emerged during 30 minute intervals. Parental strain of Port-en-Bessin (n = 19). Parental strain of St. Jean-de-Luz (n = 46). F1 generation (n = 36). Backcross generation (n = 67). Daytime is given in hours after the middle of dark phase ("hour 0"), which necessarily makes the middle of the light phase "hour 12". The grey shading marks dark phase. For the backcross only the single reared crosses were recorded in 30 min intervals and are given here. Comprehensive diurnal data is available in [3]. (B) Lunar rhythm plotted as the fraction of individuals that emerged during each day of the artificial moonlight cycle. Parental strain of Port-en-Bessin (n = 189). Parental strain of St. Jean-de-Luz (n = 698). F1 generation (n = 45). Backcross generation (n = 575). Arrows mark the days with artificial moonlight. Data of two lunar cycles added up.
