Comparison of worker mortality across diets. Numbers of dead workers (of 150 individuals per group initially) after a 12-week experimental period; differences among diet categories were significant (ANOVA: p < 0.001, F5,42 = 8.459; see Results). Groups that differed significantly from each other in Tukey HSD posthoc test are marked with different letter above box-plots. Diet A (artificial diet with essential AA) is intermediate between groups and not significantly different from these groups. Diets as in legend of Figure 1. Median is given as line in boxes, outliers are indicated by a circle.
