Effects of immunostimulation on the absolute quantities of cuticular hydrocarbons. Discriminant analysis was used to determine if there were significant differences in the cuticular hydrocarbon profiles of control, saline-, bead- and bacteria-injected individuals, based on absolute quantity of each compound. There were significant differences across all treatments F(51, 102)=4.32; p<0.0001.
