Slopes of the cholesterol content of D. magna (μg mg–1 C) as a function of dietary cholesterol level (μg mg–1 C, log10-transformed) for the whole individual (slopeI), the somatic tissue (slopeS) and the eggs of the first clutch (slopeE) at the three tested temperatures,calculated by simple linear regression models

95% confidence intervals are given in parentheses. A negative lower confidence interval indicates a non-significant slope. Identical letters in superscript indicate slopes that were not significantly different among temperatures after pair-wise comparisons using individual ANCOVAs(P<0.05)
