Distribution of abundances of insensitive D. (fourth-root transformed) with observed frequencies 6 weeks after contamination (a) (n = 96) and concentration–response curves for abundance of sensitive D. at three different densities of insensitive D. (“low”: 10th percentile = 1.6 Ind./L; “medium”: 50th percentile = 2.3 Ind./L; “high”: 90th percentile = 3.2 Ind./L) (b). Predicted abundance data for sensitive D. in % (relative to control) is based on linear models for the relations between sensitive and insensitive D., 6 weeks after contamination (Fig. 3). For the control and 3 μg/L esfenvalerate, no significant correlations were found. Here a fitted trendline was used for prediction of the concentration–response curves
