Technical Abstract: Methods for analyzing data from dose-response and time-response bioassays with insect pathogens will be presented. Topics will include dose (or time) selection, number of replications and number of individuals to test per replication (and what to do with replications in analyses), computer programs available for analyzing data, how to compare responses to different treatments, and what to report in publications. Examples and interpretation of complete analyses of dose-response and time-response bioassay data will be discussed.
