Developmental Time Preliminary Experiment

Below is a slide show of my first preliminary experiment to determine whether WT and Rb N. ribisnigri developed differently on susceptible and resistant lettuce varieties. There were six treatments:

  • WT N. ribisnigri on susceptible Saladin
  • WT N. ribisnigri on resistant (Nr) Eluarde lettuce
  • WT N. ribisnigri on resistant (Nr) Rotary lettuce
  • Rb N. ribisnigri on susceptible Saladin
  • Rb N. ribisnigri on resistant (Nr) Eluarde lettuce
  • Rb N. ribisnigri on resistant (Nr) Rotary lettuce

The developmental time to adult, survival, achieved fecundity and adult weight was recorded.
