Potential fecundity of cold season noctuid moths in captivity, according to the three experimental food treatments. ‘Banana’ refers to moths that had access to fruit slices in addition to sucrose solution as adult food. Given are means (controlling for life expectancy in the lab) and 95% confidence intervals. a autumn moths b adult hibernators captured in autumn and overwintered in the lab c adult hibernators captured after hibernation in the wild.
