P. marginata oviposition choice between Spartina sp. under glasshouse conditions

Ten plants of each Spartina species were randomly assigned to one of ten groups, each containing a single plant of each species rooted in separate pots. Each group was enclosed in a cylindrical PET polyester cage as before, and eight female and four male adult P. marginata were introduced to the centre of each cage. After 14 days, leaf measurements and a count of P. marginata eggs were used to calculate the number of eggs per cm of combined leaf length for each Spartina species.
