  • Cold-hardiness and related adaptations of insects in the Arctic correspond to characteristic climatic constraints. Some species are long-lived and are cold-hardy in several stages. In the Arctic, diapause and cold-hardiness are less likely to be linked than in temperate regions, because life-cycle timing depends as much on the need to coincide development with the short summer as on the need to resist winter cold. Winter habitats of many species are exposed rather than sheltered from cold so… CONTINUE READING
