1. The effect of different temperatures (8° to 24° C) upon the rate of normal development and upon the frequency of the malformation “double abdomen” in partially UV irradiated eggs ofSmittia was tested. 2. The Q10-value of the rate of normal development increased with decreasing temperature. A value of 1.8 was found between 24° and 20° C, a value of 5.4… (More)
