Identification of the gregarization-associated dark-pigmentotropin in locusts through an albino mutant.
Results show that even in isolated (solitary) nymphs, [His7] corazonin induces gregarious black patterns, and its primary structure shows some similarity with the vertebrate melanophore stimulating hormone.

Environmental cues, mostly photoperiod and temperature, mediated by effects on the neuroendocrine system, control reproductive diapause in female insects, which has two major adaptive functions: It improves chances of survival during unfavorable season(s) and it confines oviposition to that period of the year that is optimal for survival of the eggs and progeny.
Adipokinetic Hormone and Flight Fuel Related Characteristics of Density-Dependent Locust Phase Polymorphism: A Review
Osmoregulation in the desert tenebrionid beetle Trachyderma philistina Reiche during dehydration and subsequent rehydration.
Density-dependent phase polymorphism affects response to adipokinetic hormone in Locusta
