Diapause is an important adaptation in insects which recurs in many species enabling them to persist in regions which would otherwise be unfavourable for permanent habitation, and to maintain high numbers in an environment which might otherwise support only a low population. Frequently diapause occurs in that stage of the life cycle which is highly adapted to resist the rigours of the climate. Thus in the grasshopper Austroicetes diapause occurs in the egg stage, which by virtue of an… 
Diapause as a pivotal factor for latitudinal and seasonal adaptation in Locusta migratoria in Japan
TLDR
The results indicate that the extensive distribution of this locust has been made possible by its considerable genetic and physiological flexibility.

The Horn Fly. II. Comparative Physiological Studies of Reproductive and Diapaused Pupae
TLDR
A 3-year study was initiated at State College, Mississippi, during 1966 to characterize physiological conditions or changes of horn fly, Haematobia irritans (L.), diapause.
Life history strategy and egg diapause in the intertidal collembolan Anurida maritima
TLDR
In autumn due to low temperatures A.maritima, which forages during low tide on the open shore and seeks refuge underground before the incoming tide, is too sluggish to find food in the limited period of low water, which probably explains why this cosmopolitan species has developed a strategy to survive the winter in the temperate zone in the egg stage.
Adaptive significance of the prolonged diapause in the western Mediterranean lycaenid butterfly Tomares ballus (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
TLDR
The adaptive value of this strategy is discussed in relation to the effects of adverse and unpredictable weather during the flight period of the butterfly, intra-guild competition, parasitoids and changes in habitat quality, which may also be exhibited by other species of Mediterranean lycaenids.
THE ONSET AND DURATION OF DIAPAUSE IN EGGS OF ACHETA COMMODUS
The stage of morphogenesis at which diapause supervenes in eggs of the com· mon field cricket A. commodu8 was critically determined, and found to be the 46·hr stage in terms of the series described
Timing of diapause termination in relation to variation in winter climate
TLDR
The data suggest that, rather than a simple cold‐summing process with a distinct diapause termination point, there are trade‐offs between time and temperature at the low and high end of the thermal range, resulting in a nonlinear thermal landscape showing a ridge of increasing eclosion propensity at moderate temperatures.
Uninterrupted Development of Two Aphid Species Belonging to Cinara Genus during Winter Diapause
TLDR
It is presented that two species of aphids belonging to Cinara grow and develop throughout the duration of the winter diapause, and it seems that this feature is conducive to the rapid development of embryos in the egg, which may be another specific feature for aphid biology of overwintering.

TLDR
An analysis of the meteorological records shows that severe mortality rates may have occurred as a result of drought in the summer from one to seven times during the 50 years 1891–1940, depending upon the district.
Dormancy in Reduvius Personatus (Linnaeus).
TLDR
The subject of dormancy of Reduvius personatus (Linnaeus) first aroused the interest of the writer when it was observed that this insect apparently ceased development during the winter months, even though kept in heated quarters and supplied with the same food which permitted its development at other seasons of the year.

TLDR
To approach a solution of the problems here presented, two hypotheses must be considered: i.e. the difference in seasonal history with the accompanying differences in habit may be the result of the purely inherent racial characteristics of the two groups, perhaps originating and persisting independently of climatic conditions.
Observations on the biology and physiology of wireworms of the genus Agriotes Esch
TLDR
It is shown that increase in dry weight is a more valid estimate of growth than increase in fresh weight and the pF scale of soil moisture is shown to be of value in expressing the soil-moisture relations of wireworms.

TLDR
When the x factor reaction is complete but the y factor is still present, the insect can be returned to diapause by either high temperatures or a lack of adequate moisture or a combination of these.
