The offspring of individuals reared under LN conditions at L1 stage (2 generations) at 2 distinct temperatures (15 and 18°C) was analyzed in terms of percentage of sexual (oviparous and male)-producers or parthenogenetic-producers. The offspring of control individuals maintained under continuous LN conditions across 3 generations is also indicated for comparison.
