Oxygen consumption and life span in the adult male housefly, Musca domestica
TLDR
The metabolic rate of the adult male flies was experimentally altered by varying the level of physical activity and ambient temperature and the results support the postulates of the rate of living hypothesis.
Being cool: how body temperature influences ageing and longevity
TLDR
It is argued that the low temperature of the long-lived naked mole-rat possibly contributes to its exceptional longevity and the mechanisms involved appear to be less direct than once thought with neuroendocrine processes possibly mediating complex physiological responses to temperature changes.

Environmental Temperature and Life Span in Poikilotherms
TLDR
Drosophila subobscura experiments demonstrated that exposure of flies to a low temperature followed by their transfer to high temperatures at different ages reduced their initial expectation of life at the high temperatures by one day for every day spent at the low temperature.
Two Phases of Ageing in Drosophila Subobscura
TLDR
It was found that during the early part of the life span, over the range 15-30° C., every day spent at a low temperature reduced the expectation of life at a higher temperature by approximately 1 day, and little further change in this expectation occurred with increasing age at a lower temperature.
ACCLIMATION OF OXYGEN CONSUMPTION TO TEMPERATURE IN THE AMERICAN COCKROACH (PERIPLANETA AMERICANA)
TLDR
Comparison of cold- and warm-adapted nymphs when measured at a series of temperatures demonstrates that cold-acclimated animals consume more oxygen per gram per hour than equal weight warm- Adapted ones.

TLDR
The results obtained strongly suggest that different processes are responsible for ageing at different temperatures; they indicate a connexion between the rate of egg-laying and the rates of ageing, and this possibility has been confirmed by a study of ageing in virgin females and in females lacking ovaries.
Experimental Studies on the Duration of Life. XII. Influence of Temperature during the Larval Period and Adult Life on the Duration of the Life of the Imago of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The origin of the present investigation was closely connected with a study of the influence of temperature on physical characteristics of Drosophila conducted by one of the authors, and the duration of life of flies genetically and phaenotypically identical is tested.
