Hormetic effect of gossypol on larval development. Net larval weight gain (mg) (A) and pupal weight recorded one day after pupation (mg) (B) are plotted against the logarithm of gossypol concentration (mg/L). Means that are not indicated with the same letter are significantly different from each other as determined by post-hoc Duncan tests (P < 0.05) (feeding treatments T5 = 0.016%; T7 = 0.16% gossypol in insect diet).
