Mosquito wing length data

Description

Sokal and Rohlf (2012) describe an experiment to gauge the variability in wing length in female mosquitos (Aedes intrudens). Four females were randomly selected from three cages and two measurements were made on the left wing of each female. Both cage and female (in cage) can be seen as random effects.
