1. Oxygen consumptions of resting and trilling crickets were measured at various temperatures. Oscillograms taken at comparable temperatures were used to identify the major factors determining the cost of stridulation. 2. Species used wereAnurogryllus arboreus (mass ≃0.4 g), wing stroke rate at 23°C of 71 strokes per s; andOecanthus celerinictus andO. quadripunctatus, two sibling species, (masses ≃0.06 g), wing stroke rates at 23°C of 57 and 38 strokes per s respectively. 3. At 23°C the three… CONTINUE READING
