Sheets 1 and 2 give the results of performance (fitness) assays on 10 clonal lines of M. euphorbiae. 'Rm' is the intrinsic rate of population increase, given by 0.738(ln Md) / T where T is the pre-reproductive period and Md is the number of offspring produced in the time equivalent to the pre-reproductive period. 'Event' indicates whether an individual was alive (0) or dead (1) at a time equal to twice the pre-reproductive period. Sheets 3 and 4 give the data for the host acceptability and suitability experiments, where 'Count' is the number of aphids in which an egg or larva was found, or the number of mummies formed, for that replicate.
