Abstract The relationship between diapause‐associated metabolic suppression and carbohydrate metabolism linked with cold tolerance was investigated in pupae of Pieris brassicae L. Cold tolerance was assessed by measuring the crystallization temperature (Tc) and by estimates of pre‐freeze mortality. Metabolic suppression was measured using 31P nmr and carbohydrates by GLC. 
Effects of seasonal acclimation on cold tolerance and biochemical status of the carob moth, Ectomyelois ceratoniae Zeller, last instar larvae
TLDR
Most probably, lipids play a role as energy reserve, and low-molecular weight carbohydrates and polyols provide cryoprotection for overwintering larvae of the carob moth. Expand
Adult diapause and cold hardiness in Aulacophora nigripennis (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae).
TLDR
Children of Aulacophora nigripennis were ready to start post-diapause development upon transfer to high temperature by late February irrespective of photoperiod, and adults showed a decreased supercooling point, increased chill tolerance and high myo-inositol content during winter. Expand
Physiology of drought tolerance and cold hardiness of the Mediterranean tiger moth Cymbalophora pudica during summer diapause.
TLDR
Cold and drought acclimations did not lead to significant changes in the measured physiological and biochemical parameters but cold (not drought) acclimation caused a significant increase in cold hardiness. Expand
Glycerol and glucose accumulation during diapause in a tropical beetle
Abstract. Carbohydrate changes were measured during the 10‐month adult diapause in the neotropical beetle, Stenotarsus rotundus Arrow (Endomychidae, Coleoptera) to test the hypothesis that metabolicExpand
Overwintering Strategy and Mechanisms of Cold Tolerance in the Codling Moth (Cydia pomonella)
TLDR
Detailed laboratory analysis of cold tolerance, and whole-winter survival assays in semi-natural conditions, suggest that the average winter cold does not represent a major threat for codling moth populations. Expand

TLDR
It seems that the ability to lower the supercooling point evolved through natural selection in the course of expansion of this species to the northern climates. Expand
Cold tolerance and silencing of three cold-tolerance genes of overwintering Chinese white pine larvae
The values of physiological indices and the enzymes activities involved in the overwintering stage were studied in D. armandi larvae in each month from October 2014 to March 2015. The sorbitol,Expand
Seasonal Change in Cold Tolerance of the House Spider, Achaearanea tepidariorum (Araneae: Theridiidae).
TLDR
Field-collected nymphs of Achaearanea tepidariorum displayed significant seasonal variation in the level of cold tolerance, and seasonal depression of LLT 50 began to occur one month earlier than that of the SCP, suggesting that these two changes are induced by separate processes. Expand
Diapause metabolism and changes in carbohydrates related to cryoprotection in Pieris brassicae
TLDR
Field overwintering pupae show a gradual increase in metabolic rate measured by 31P NMR from February with a more rapid increase in early May during the last 2 weeks before eclosion, following a trend which begins earlier in the winter. Expand
Metabolism and cold tolerance of overwintering adult mountain pine beetles (Dendroctonus ponderosae): evidence of facultative diapause?
TLDR
The strong mid-winter metabolic suppression correlated with improved supercooling ability, coupled with their lack of response to variation in environmental temperature, are evidence of possible diapause in adult overwintering mountain pine beetles. Expand

TLDR
Researchers have elucidated the molecular mechanisms that control the massive conversion of glycogen to polyols and, in some species, regulate the differential synthesis of dual polyols. Expand

Influence of diapause and temperature on cryoprotectant synthesis and cold hardiness in pupae of Pieris brassicae
TLDR
Cryoprotectant accumulation in pupae of Pieris brassicae was examined as a response to the diapause state and to low temperature exposure and its consistently low level suggests that it does not function as a cryoprotECTant. Expand
Physiology of diapause in the adult bark beetle, Ips acuminatus Gyll., studied in relation to cold hardiness
TLDR
The ability of beetles to resynthesize ethylene glycol when a detectable level is present in the organism remains unaltered during overwintering, and resumption of ovarian development in spring had no effect on the capability of outdoor beetles to enhance their supercooling capacity when subjected to sub-zero temperatures. Expand
Effects of low temperature on diapausing Aglais urticae and Inachis io (Lepidoptera. Nymphalidae): overwintering physiology
TLDR
Two species of nymphalid butterfly Aglais urticae and Inachis io were exposed to four different temperature regimes 10, 2, −5°C and a cycling −5 10° C during adult diapause to determine changes in metabolites at each temperature and to assess their relationship to observed mortality and cold hardiness.

The effect of temperature and anoxia on haemolymph composition and supercooling in three overwintering insects
TLDR
It is concluded that the effect on supercooling exhibited by glycerol is not unique, but that a number of solutes in the haemolymph may have a similar effect. Expand

Polyol metabolism related to diapause in Bombyx eggs: Different behaviour of sorbitol from glycerol during diapause and post-diapause
TLDR
Modified instant thin layer chromatography was suitable for the separation of the carbohydrate components by its rapidity and simplicity and it was confirmed that glycogen, sorbitol and glycerol were then main carbohydrate components of the eggs. Expand

TLDR
Hormone applications and haemolymph transfer were used to study the control of cryoprotectant synthesis in diapause and non-diapause Pieris brassicae and showed significant increases in glucose and glycerol whilst sorbitol levels are unchanged. Expand
Physiology of cold tolerance in insects.
TLDR
Future research should be focused on the possible role of other factors in cold hardening such as bound water, dehydration, low-molecular-weight solutes other than polyols, and the biochemical mechanisms forming the basis of the seasonal changes in the cold hardiness of insects. Expand
