Table 3 CHC profiles of male Glossina m. morsitans treated with different gamma-irradiation doses at three time points (early and late pupae, and young adults, respectively). 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
