Physiological responses to fluctuating thermal and hydration regimes in the chill susceptible insect, Thaumatotibia leucotreta.

Abstract

Fluctuating thermal regimes (FTR), consisting of cycles between stressful low and benign temperatures, are known to improve survival and fecundity in a variety of insects. By contrast, fluctuating hydration regimes (FHR) consisting of cycles between dehydrating and benign conditions have been less comprehensively researched. Hypothetically, either repeated… (More)
