Effects of Temperature on Lifespan of Drosophila melanogaster from Different Genetic Backgrounds: Links between Metabolic Rate and Longevity
TLDR
A strong negative relationship between the total heat flow and longevity is found and a high metabolic rate leads to increased aging in males and females in all strains, and it is showed that temperature has a significant effect on fecundity and body weight.
Berberine Attenuated Aging-Accelerating Effect of High Temperature in Drosophila Model
TLDR
The obtained data suggested the possible involvement of TRP-KYN metabolism in the aging-acceleration effect of the high temperature and in protective effect of berberine.
Co-chaperone p23 Regulates C. elegans Lifespan in Response to Temperature
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in response to temperature, daf-41/ZC395.10, the C. elegans homolog of p23 co-chaperone/prostaglandin E synthase-3, governs entry into the long-lived dauer diapause and regulates adult lifespan.
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.

Independence of Temperature of the Rate of Ageing in Drosophila subobscura
TLDR
It is reported that the expectation that an animal which is kept for an appreciable part of its life-span at a high temperature and then transferred to a low temperature would be expected to die at a chronologically younger age than a similar animal kept continuously at the lower temperature is not realized.
Temperature and length of life in Drosophila.
Two Phases of Ageing in Drosophila Subobscura
TLDR
It was found that during the early part of the life span, over the range 15-30° C., every day spent at a low temperature reduced the expectation of life at a higher temperature by approximately 1 day, and little further change in this expectation occurred with increasing age at a lower temperature.
Experimental Studies on the Duration of Life. XII. Influence of Temperature during the Larval Period and Adult Life on the Duration of the Life of the Imago of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The origin of the present investigation was closely connected with a study of the influence of temperature on physical characteristics of Drosophila conducted by one of the authors, and the duration of life of flies genetically and phaenotypically identical is tested.
Temperature and Lifespan in Drosophila
TLDR
Experiments are described which support Hollingsworth's conclusion that neither theory is an adequate explanation of the observed effects of temperature on the lifespan of Drosophila, but the conclusion seems to be based on misinterpretations of both the threshold theory and the rate of living theory.
Aging: a theory based on free radical and radiation chemistry.
TLDR
It seems possible that one factor in aging may be related to deleterious side attacks of free radicals (which are normally produced in the course of cellular metabolism) on cell constituents.
