Figure 1. Adineta ricciae, life history traits. Box-plots of fitness components (A) and longevity (B) at start (control, white) and after 4, 8, 12 months of hydration (grey) and subsequent desiccations (black). The box represents the interquartile range which contains the 50% of values. The whiskers are lines that extend from the box to the highest and lowest values within 1.5 interquartiles above and below the median, excluding extreme values (open circles up to 95% and asterisks above 95%). A line across the box indicates the median.

Box-plot of fitness components at start (control, white) and after 4, 8, 12 months of hydration (gray) and subsequent desiccations (black). The box represents the interquartile range which contains the 50% of values. The whiskers are lines that extend from the box to the highest and lowest values within 1.5 interquartiles above and below the median, which is indicated by a line across the box.
