  • Numbers in parentheses represent animals examined for each phenotype. ND, not done.

  • a Survival was calculated as described in materials and methods.

  • b Calculated as the percentage of hermaphrodites laying fertilized eggs.

  • c The number of progeny that survived to adulthood. Larvae that died during L1 and L2 stages were not counted.
