Summary The eggs of Baetis rhodani were collected from natural conditions just after laying and incubated at different constant temperatures (from 7-5°C to 27-5°C) with a constant photoperiod. The incubation period was shorter at higher temperatures up to 25°C (8 days); above this eggs no longer hatched. The slowest development (determined by extrapolation) was at about 3°C (theoretically 130 days). The hatching period was always very short (about 3-5 days). Fewer eggs hatched at higher… Expand
Experimental studies on nymphal growth in Leptophlebia vespertina (L.) (Ephemeroptera)
The mayfly, Leptophlebia vespertina (L.) was reared at field temperatures in the laboratory and the field population and growth was generally rapid during the first 3½ months and slow thereafter. Expand
Life cycles and growth rates of Baetis spp. (Ephemeroptera: Baetidae) in the laboratory and in two stony streams in Austria
The growth rates of B. lutheri and B. rhodani were slower in the field than in the laboratory at higher temperatures, and the growing rates of the three Baetis spp. Expand
Effect of temperature on the hatching time of eggs of Ephemerella ignita (Poda) (Ephemeroptera:Ephemerellidae)
Equations were developed to estimate the number of degree-days required for development at these higher temperatures and there was good agreement between these estimates and the actual hatching times. Expand
Egg development in the mayflies of a Swiss glacial floodplain
Rhithrogena nivata, one of the most extreme cold-adapted mayfly species, had a long egg incubation period, and success in development largely depended on the timing of hatching and discharge conditions, which could exploit extremely unstable and cold habitats where other species are limited by low water temperatures.

Mortality of the terrestrial adult and aquatic nymphal life stages of Baetis vernus and Baetis rhodani in the Breitenbach, Germany (Insecta: Ephemeroptera)
Mortality during the terrestrial life stages was at least as high, if not higher, than during the aquatic stages, and there is a considerable export of organic material into the terrestrial environment around the stream. Expand
Biology of Mayflies
Mayflies date from Carboniferous and Permian times and represent the oldest of the existing winged insects and are often among the first macroinvertebrates to colonize virgin habitats, however, over longer distances their dispersal capacity is limited, owing to the fragile nature and short life of the adults.

Life cycle, energy fluctuations and sexual differentiation in Ephemera danica (Ephemeroptera), a stream-living mayfly
Larval growth of Ephemera danica Muller in a South Swedish stream was calculated from changes in the size distribution of the larvae between monthly samples, suggesting that development of adult characters provides a mechanism allowing nymphs of different age to mature and emerge synchronously. Expand
Life cycle shifts in Baetis rhodani (Ephemeroptera) in the Norwegian mountains
Although larval growth and voltinism were influenced by water temperature, other factors such as food resources are likely to be important in mountain areas because of the widely distributed mayfly's success in colonising a wide range of running water habitats throughout Europe. Expand
Contrasting dynamics from egg to adult in the life cycle of summer and overwintering generations of Baetis rhodani in a small stream
This study has shown that the mechanism for population regulation was density-dependent survival in larval stage II (instars 2–5) and the importance of obtaining information on egg densities and their role in density- dependent processes; the necessity of frequent sampling for a quantitative description of complex life cycles of aquatic insects.

The relationship between temperature and duration of egg development in some epiphytic cladocera and copepoda from the River Thames, reading, with a discussion of temperature functions
A decrease in temperature caused a marked increase in the time taken to complete development for all nine species and the relationship of development time to temperature was examined, and the linear reciprocal relationship, Krogh's curve and the vant' Hoff-Arrhenius function were found to be inadequate.

The Thermal Resistance of Mayfly Nymphs from Ponds and Streams
In one of the stream nymphs ( Baetis rhodani ) acclimatization to higher temperatures was not possible within 40 hr, and the bearing of the results on the ecological distribution of the mayflies is discussed. Expand
The Generality of Temperature Effects on Developmental Rate and on Oxygen Consumption in Insect Eggs
The present study was undertaken to ascertain whether the phenomena encountered with Oncopeltus eggs were peculiar to that species or were general for insects, and showed that qualitatively one obtains the same results with all of these species. Expand
