Winter survival for larvae of goldenrod gall insects, the freeze-avoiding Epiblema scudderiana, and the freeze tolerant, Eurosta solidaginis, includes entry into diapause (a torpid state of arrested development) and expression of a variety of cryoprotective adaptations. Diapause and cold winter temperatures, as well as freezing in E. solidaginis, all strongly reduce the need for mitochondrial activity. To evaluate the responses of mitochondria to these conditions, we assessed the maximal… CONTINUE READING
