Table 2 Sample estimates of median (LC 50 ) and 95% (LC 95 ) Lethal Concentrations (±95% confidence limits) calculated from minimal adequate generalized linear models assessing the effect of ammonia concentration (expressed in mg·L -1 total-N) on Anopheles gambiae molecular forms larval mortality

From: Physiological correlates of ecological divergence along an urbanization gradient: differential tolerance to ammonia among molecular forms of the malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae

Form Lethal Concentration (LC)
LC50 LC95
M 685 (639 – 729) 1355 (1250 – 1460)
S 453 (421 – 486) 1129 (986 – 1292)
  1. The LC50 and LC95 presented in the table estimate the concentrations producing 50% and 95% mortality, respectively, in the larval population exposed for 12 hours to ammonia.
