Cation regulation by the terrestrial isopod Armadillidium vulgare (Crustacea: Isopoda: Oniscidea) during dehydration in air.
Why does the Namib Desert tenebrionid Onymacris unguicularis (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) fog-bask?
The lesser osmoregulatory ability of Onymacris unguicularis and perhaps earlier susceptibility to osmotic stress, a significantly high normal blood glycerol level (relative to other diurnal adesmiine tenebrionids), and a water storage mechanism associated with synthesis of fat, probably all contribute to the development of fog-basking behaviour in this species.
Haemolymph amino acid, sugar and glycerol levels in the Namib Desert tenebrionid Physadesmia globosa (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) during dehydration and rehydration
Haemolymph levels of amino acids, sugars and glycerol were investigated in the tenebrionid Physadesmia globosa during dehydration and rehydration, indicating active regulation of this solute.
The Comparative Osmoregulatory Ability of Two Water Beetle Genera Whose Species Span the Fresh-Hypersaline Gradient in Inland Waters (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae, Hydrophilidae)
It is shown that osmoregulatory capacity, rather than osmoconformity, has evolved independently in these different lineages and may mediate habitat segregation amongst congeners across the salinity gradient.
The evolution of recovery from desiccation stress in laboratory-selected populations of Drosophila melanogaster
The findings indicate that, when allowed to recover on saline+sucrose solution, D populations have the capacity to restore water at a greater rate than C populations and are able to fully restore dry mass and sodium content to the levels observed in non-desiccated, hydrated D flies.
Volume regulation during dehydration of desert beetles.
Physiological diversity in insects : large scale patterns
It is shown that insect upper thermal limits vary much less than lower thermal limits, resulting in an increase in tolerance breadth with latitude, which provides some support for the physiological tolerance assumption of the climatic variability hypothesis proposed to explain Rapoport's rule.

Thermal and water relations of desert beetles
The study of desert beetles is important because it illustrates many of the solutions evolved by arthropods to the problems engendered, in an extreme form, by life in all terrestrial environments.
