Real-time traces of CO(2) release of pseudergates of the dampwood termite, Zootermopsis nevadensis (Hagen) were obtained using flow-through respirometry. Traces were made at each of six temperatures, between 10 and 35 degrees C. Termites released CO(2) in a cyclic pattern at each of the six temperatures. CO(2) release rate (as V(CO(2)) in ml h(-1)) increased significantly with temperature and body mass. Rate of change in V(CO(2)) with temperature (or Q(10)) was 2.11. Degree of cycling in CO(2… CONTINUE READING
