The effects of age and behavioral development on honey bee (Apis mellifera) flight performance
SUMMARY A critical but seldom-studied component of life history theory is how behavior and age affect whole-organism performance. To address this issue we compared the flight performance of honeyExpand

Energy expenditure and water flux of free‐living Dune Larks in the Namib: a test of the reallocation hypothesis on a desert bird
1. Dune Larks (Mirafra erythroclamys) are the only avian species that has evolved the capability of surviving in the Namib Sand Sea, one of the driest regions in the world. Their field metabolic rateExpand

Age and natural metabolically-intensive behavior affect oxidative stress and antioxidant mechanisms
Flying honey bees have among the highest mass-specific metabolic rates ever measured, suggesting that their flight muscles may experience high levels of oxidative stress during normal dailyExpand

Deleterious effects of mild simulated overwintering temperatures on survival and potential fecundity of rose-galling Diplolepis wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae).
Prepupae of the rose galling Diplolepis spinosa from areas with relatively cold winters in southern Canada, and Diplolepis variabilis from a milder locale in western Canada, were used to test theExpand

Partial link between the seasonal acquisition of cold-tolerance and desiccation resistance in the goldenrod gall fly Eurosta solidaginis (Diptera: Tephritidae)
SUMMARY Possible links between seasonal increases in cold-tolerance and desiccation resistance were examined in field-collected larvae of the goldenrod gall fly, Eurosta solidaginis. From 20Expand

Repeated freezing induces oxidative stress and reduces survival in the freeze-tolerant goldenrod gall fly, Eurosta solidaginis.
Freeze tolerant insects must not only survive extracellular ice formation but also the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) during oxygen reperfusion upon thawing. Furthermore, diurnalExpand

Laboratory Metabolism and Evaporative Water Loss of the Aardwolf, Proteles cristatus
We examined oxygen consumption and total evaporative water loss of aardwolves (Proteles cristatus) at temperatures within and below their thermal neutral zone during both summer and winter. DuringExpand

Differences in cold tolerance, desiccation resistance, and cryoprotectant production between three populations of Eurosta solidaginis collected from different latitudes
Possible links between cold-tolerance and desiccation resistance were examined between larvae of the goldenrod gall fly collected from Michigan, southern Ohio, and Alabama locations as their hostExpand

Extreme resistance to desiccation and microclimate-related differences in cold-hardiness of gall wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) overwintering on roses in southern Canada.
Four species of cynipid wasp of the genus Diplolepis that induce galls on roses (Rosa species) in southern Canada and two species of inquiline cynipid associated with these galls were studied forExpand
