BODY TEMPERATURE IN POIKILOTHERMAL ANIMALS
TLDR
The factors which determine the amount by which the body of an animal shall differ in temperature from the surroundings are listed.
The Humidity Reactions of the Wood-louse, Porcellio scaber (Latreille)
TLDR
P. scaber exhibits hygrokinesis, being very active in dry air and almost motionless in nearly saturated air, and shows hygrophobotactic behaviour, which is to collect the animals into moist air.
The Daily Rhythm of Activity of the Cockroach, Blatta Orientalis L : I. Aktograph Experiments, Especially in Relation to Light
TLDR
There are indications that animal responses to physical stimuli may depend to a considerable extent on whether the animal is in the active or the inactive phase of its daily cycle, and a method is suggested for making it possible to study the nocturnal phase during the daytime.
The Biological Background of Locust Control
There is no single species properly named "locust," for intensely migra­ tory and swarming species, like the desert locust of the Bible, shade off into sedentary and nonswarming grasshoppers, some of
Temperature and Humidity Relations of the Cockroach.
TLDR
Observations on the temperature-preference of various insects find that the humidity of the air in which the animals are kept before the experiment has an effect on the preferred temperature.
Classification of Taxes and Kineses
TLDR
Recent work by Ullyott indicates a way in which the classification and terminology of locomotory reactions of this kind can be considerably simplified and improved.
The Temperature And Humidity Relations Of The Cockroach: V. Humidity Preference
1. In a diffusion gradient of humidity at uniform temperature, some cockroaches (Blatta orientalis, L.) show a tendency to spend more time in the drier region. Other individuals appear to be
