The table displays the number of moths selecting each lure(phenylacetaldehyde and α-pinene) in dual-choice preference tests. The percentage of moths selecting α-pinene in each treatment group is also displayed (percentages selecting phenylacetaldehyde = 100-value for each treatment). Each treatment group represents a new set of moths (total 160 moths). Treatment groups: 1a, Experiment 1a (immediate test); 1b, Experiment 1b (24 h test); no exposure = moths given no exposure to either volatile and left unfed; exposed pinene/aldehyde = moths exposed to α-pinene or phenylacetaldehyde, respectively, without feeding. Pinene/aldehyde = moths in`conditioned' group, using α-pinene or phenylacetaldehyde, respectively,as the conditioning stimulus. Statistical analysis of these data is presented in Table 2.
