Environmental cues, mostly photoperiod and temperature, mediated by effects on the neuroendocrine system, control reproductive diapause in female insects. Arrest of oocyte development characterizes female reproductive diapause, which has two major adaptive functions: It improves chances of survival during unfavorable season(s), and/or it confines oviposition to that period of the year that is optimal for survival of the eggs and progeny. Although reproductive diapause is less well studied in… 
Diapause affects cuticular hydrocarbon composition and mating behavior of both sexes in Drosophila montana
TLDR
This study shows that the mating behavior of females and males is well coordinated during and after overwintering and it also gives support to the dual role of insect cuticular hydrocarbons in adaptation and mate choice.
Environmental conditions terminate reproductive diapause and influence pheromone perception in the long‐lived moth Caloptilia fraxinella
TLDR
The main factors involved in controlling male pheromone response plasticity and the implications of these factors for the C. fraxinella population in its expanded range are discussed.
Size and protein content of accessory glands in adult male Caloptilia fraxinella in different physiological states
TLDR
Male SAG are longer and positively correlate with moth body size when males are reproductively active in the spring compared with males in reproductive diapause in the summer and autumn, and contain significantly more protein during the period of reproductive activity than during reproductive diAPause.
Characterization of Reproductive Dormancy in Male Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
This study shows that male D. melanogaster can enter reproductive dormancy, and suggests that dormant male flies deplete stored nutrients faster than females, studied earlier, and that males take longer to recover reproductive capacity after reintroduction to non-diapause conditions.
10 – Hormonal Control of Diapause
Physiological and Environmental Factors Affecting the Composition of the Ejaculate in Mosquitoes and Other Insects
TLDR
It is argued that future research in this area would improve the understanding of male reproductive biology from a physiological and ecological perspective, and that researchers may be able to leverage this information to study key components of the ejaculate.
Neuroendocrine Regulation of Reproductive Dormancy in the Fruit Fly Drosophila melanogaster: A Review of Juvenile Hormone-Dependent Regulation
TLDR
This review summarizes dormancy control mechanisms in D. melanogaster and discusses the implications for future studies of insect dormancy, particularly focusing on juvenile hormone-dependent regulation.

Reversible reproductive diapause and intermediate states between diapause and full reproductive activity in male Oedipoda miniata grasshoppers
TLDR
It is demonstrated that diapause can be maintained, terminated, or reinduced, solely by changes in the daylength, and the ‘all or none’ principle does not apply to this diAPause.
STUDIES ON THE ADULT REPRODUCTIVE DIAPAUSE OF THE MONARCH BUTTERFLY, DANAUS PLEXIPPUS
TLDR
Examination of monarch butterflies obtained at monthly intervals during the annual adult cycle revealed in both sexes an adult reproductive diapause characterized by depressed growth of those reproductive organs sensitive to juvenile hormone.
PUPAL DIAPAUSE IN TROPICAL FLESH FLIES: ENVIRONMENTAL AND ENDOCRINE REGULATION, METABOLIC RATE AND GENETIC SELECTION
TLDR
Diapause persists for several months at a constant cool temperature, but four days at 25° C is sufficient to break diapause in P. spilogaster, suggesting that the fly pupa has an accurate mechanism for temperature summation.
REPEATED REVERSAL OF THE REPRODUCTIVE DIAPAUSE BY PHOTOPERIOD AND TEMPERATURE IN MALES OF THE GRASSHOPPER, OEDIPODA MINIATA
TLDR
An endogenous trend to completediapause development and terminate diapause does not seem to exist in the males of the grasshopper Oedipoda miniata; their reproductive diappause may be regarded as rather primitive.
Neuro-hormonal control of sexual behavior in insects.
TLDR
The efficiency of the reproductive effort will be increased if there is some method of synchronizing the act of copulation with the presence of mature or nearly mature gametes and the ability to produce the secretions necessary for sperm transfer.

TLDR
Feeding is thus an initial stimulus not only for oogenesis in each consecutive cycle but also for the onset of sexual activity in non-diapausing females.
Termination and reinduction of reproductive diapause by photo‐period and temperature in males of the grasshopper, Oedipoda miniata
TLDR
This is the first report on complete control of photoperiod—temperature over aestival reproductive diapause and its reversibility in a male insect.
