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… Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Reproductive fitness of Drosophila is maximised by optimal developmental temperature
TLDR
The results show that flies from both populations raised at an intermediate developmental temperature have comparable or higher early fecundity and fertility at all tested adulthood temperatures, while lower (17°C) or higher developmental temperatures did not entail any advantage under the tested thermal regimes.

Effects of diurnal thermoperiods and quickly oscillating temperatures on the development and reproduction of crickets, Gryllus bimaculatus
TLDR
Embryonic development, larval growth and fecundity of Mediterranean field crickets, Gryllus bimaculatus, were determined at various constant, daily alternating and quickly oscillating temperature regimes, based on the net reproduction oer generation and the capacity for increase. Expand
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. Expand
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.

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. Expand

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 unusuallyExpand

TLDR
It is concluded that longevity is not determined solely by preimaginal duration of development and that more of one developmental factor must be involved. Expand

TLDR
The first appeals to Medvedev's delayed maturity hypothesis of ageing and the second one links developmental speed to mitotic division rate, which are put forward to explain those data. Expand

TLDR
Drosophila larvae were reared at 10 different temperatures ranging from 12 to 32°C, which are the limits compatible with the whole development from egg to adult, which means that it is not possible to find a direct relationship between adult longevity and the speed of larval growth. Expand
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.

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. Expand

TLDR
Four characters (weight at emergence, wing and tibial length, and ovariole number), determined on adult Drosophila which developed at temperatures ranging from 12 to 32°C, show the complexity of temperature effects upon a multicellular organism. Expand
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.
