Diapause adults of Plautia stali Scott maintained at 20 degrees C under short day conditions (LD 12:12 h) were exposed to four temperatures of 5-20 degrees C to examine the effect on diapause development which was assessed in terms of oviposition. Diapause adults kept at 20 degrees C under short day conditions changed their body colour gradually from brown to green and started egg laying after a prolonged preoviposition period. Those transferred to either 10 or 15 degrees C also showed colour… CONTINUE READING
