SummaryDrosophila melanogaster larvae were reared at various constant temperatures ranging from 12° C to 32° C and adults were transferred at the usual temperature of 25° after emergence. Daily egg production and egg hatchability were measured for the whole lifetime. The adults, of the same average genotype and kept in identical conditions, showed considerable variation in reproductive capacity. For adults grown at an optimum temperature (21° or 25°) the number of offspring produced was about… 
Reproductive strategy in Drosophila melanogaster: Significance of a genetic divergence between temperate and tropical populations
TLDR
Reproductive capacities of tropical and temperate populations of D. melanogaster were compared and it is suggested that temperature populations are r-selected, while tropical ones are K-selected.
Thermal acclimation of swimming performance in newt larvae: the influence of diel temperature fluctuations during embryogenesis
TLDR
Evidence is provided that diel temperature fluctuations induce acclimation of thermal dependence of locomotor performance in ectotherms experiencing diel cycles in environmental temperatures, and this plastic response may act as an important pacemaker in the evolution of thermal sensitivity.
Heat and cold-induced male sterility in Drosophila buzzatii: genetic variation among populations for the duration of sterility
TLDR
Three phenotypic traits in Drosophila buzzatii that are strongly effected by temperature, and are expected to be closely associated with fitness in nature, are studied and viability and the duration of sterility seem to be genetically independent.
Cold adaptation in geographical populations of Drosophila melanogaster: phenotypic plasticity is more important than genetic variability
TLDR
The results point to the difficulty of finding a general interpretation to the diversity of plastic responses that are induced by growth temperature variations, and the beneficial effect observed in adults grown at a low temperature contrasts with other phenotypic effects which, like male sterility, appear as harmful and pathological.
WITHIN-AND BETWEEN-GENERATION EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE ON THE MORPHOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF DRO
TLDR
The existence of significant withinand between-generation effects suggests that comparative studies need to standardize thermal environments for at least two generations, that attempts to estimate "field" heritabilities may be unreliabte for some traits, and that predictions of short-term evolutionary responses to selection will be difficult.
Developmental Acclimation of Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) and Its Effect on Diapause and Winter Stress Tolerance
TLDR
Live-captured D. suzukii WMs and CWMs had longer preoviposition times than newly eclosed summer morph adults, indicating a reproductive diapause that was not observed in SWMs or FWMs, and survival after –3 °C freeze stress was significantly higher in diapausing, CWMs than nondiapausing SWMs and FWMs.
Life history consequences of temperature transients in Drosophila melanogaster
SUMMARY The physiological and life history consequences of chronic temperatures are well studied in ectotherms. However, little is known about the consequences of short-term exposure to unusually
The importance of pre- and postcopulatory sexual selection promoting adaptation to increasing temperatures
TLDR
It is demonstrated that sexual dimorphism decreased when flies evolved under increasing temperatures, consistent with recent theory predicting more sexually concordant selection under environmental stress and suggest an important role for precopulatory sexual selection in promoting thermal adaptation and evolutionary rescue.
Western corn rootworm egg hatch and larval development under constant and varying temperatures
TLDR
Consideration of the effects of varying temperature ranges on the acceleration of larval hatch will improve models that predict WCR hatching patterns and will improve the development and timing of control strategies.
Effects of high temperature shocks on the development and biology ofTrichogramma brassicae [Hym.: Trichogrammatidae]
TLDR
The results showed the susceptibility of both the white pupae and melanized pupae, especially at 44°C, of Trichogramma brassicae Bezdenko, and adults derived from pupae treated at any age showed reduced longevity and fecundity.

Der Einfluß von tagesperiodischen Wechseltemperaturen bei der Motte Pectinophora
TLDR
In the measured temperature range no differences in the developmental time were found between constant and alternating temperatures, and both, the duration of embryonic development and the generation time of animals reared in alternation conditions, were in accordance with the values of the mean constant temperatures.
Population Growth of Drosophila melanogaster (Diptera: Drosophilidae) at Constant and Alternating Temperatures
Alternating temperatures resulted in higher values of the innate capacity for increase (rm) of Drosophila melanogaster Meigen than mean constant temperatures within the range of temperature favorable
Quantitative genetics of fertility. I. Lifetime egg production of Drosophila melanogaster--theoretical.
TLDR
Drosophila Oviposition rapidly reaches a maximum during days six to ten post eclosion, and subsequently declines geometrically at a constant rate, egg production ceasing just prior to the death of the female.
On the Mechanism of Heterosis. I. Metabolic Capacity of Different Races of Drosophila melanogaster for Egg Production
TLDR
The correlations show that by taking the production on the 5th to 10th days of imago life the authors gain most of the information on metabolic capacity which is pertinent to heterosis, andeterotic increase in egg production, associated with hybridity, is shown to turn largely on greater maximum daily egg production.
