BPA exposure affects larval growth.
Mean larval area was determined by imaging groups of treated and control larvae and tracing individual larvae using ImageJ tools.  Mean values are shown for 72 hours after egg laying (AEL) (top panel). Examples of larvae whose area (actual) approximated the calculated means for each treatment group at 72 hours AEL are shown (bottom panel).
