. The larviposition of adult apterous Myzus persicae previously entrained to LD 18:6 showed a marked rhythm both under LD 12:12 (on plants reared in LD 18:6) and under LL (on plants reared in LL). No rhythm was detectable in larviposition by adults reared in LL. Larviposition peaked towards the end of the photophase in LD 12:12. Fresh-weight gain also showed a circadian rhythm with the greatest weight increases during the photophase. Re-entrainment from LD 12:12 to DL 12:12 was not complete… CONTINUE READING
