Table 1 CHC profiles of 5- and 10-day old antibiotic-treated (GmmWgm- = ampicillin; GmmApo = tetracycline) and control female G. m. morsitans after mass- or individual rearing. Compounds are sorted by class (mono-, di-, and trimethyl-alkanes). Given are average relative amounts of CHCs (in percent) +/− standard deviation, as well as the total absolute amount of CHCs as determined by comparison with an internal standard. Me = methyl
