Cold tolerance assays on Drosophila suzukii males and females. Flies were either non-acclimated or cold acclimated at 10 °C for incremental durations (from 2 to 216 h). Males (dark grey) and females (light grey) survival after (a) an acute cold stress at − 5 °C for 60 min or after (b) a chronic cold stress at 0 °C for 24 h according to cold acclimation duration. (c) Boxplots describing mean critical thermal minimum (Ctmin) according to cold acclimation duration for males (dark grey) and females (light grey). Chill coma recovery time (CCRT) following exposure to 0 °C for 12 h according to acclimation duration (indicated in right panel) for males (d) and females (e). Groups with the same letter in the right panel are not significantly different (Gehan-Breslow-Wilcoxon test to compare survival curves, p.value < 0.0013)
