  • SummarySurvival period, pattern of decrease in body weight and metabolic rate under starvation conditions were examined to clarify responses to starvation of a predatory insect, the mantis, Paratenodera angustipennis (S.). (i) The average survival period in starved condition was the shortest in the 1st instar larvae (5.4 days) and the longest in the adults (15.0 days for males, 26.7 days for females). (ii) The body weights of the 3rd and the 5th instar larvae decreased almost linearly during… CONTINUE READING
