  • Hypodermal ploidy was measured in adult worms (≥120 hr after hatching) as described elsewhere (Flemming et al. 2000).

  • a Sample mean ±SE.

  • b Complete genotype is unc-36(e251); svEx57[unc-36(+)-lon-3 (+)].

  • c Complete genotype is ctIs40, which is an integrated array containing multiple copies of dbl-1(+) (Suzuki et al. 1999).
