Exercise affects the growth of the dorsal longitudinal flight muscles in the tsetse fly. Examination of electron micrographs of flight muscles taken from flies subjected to enforced exercise, “ormal” exercise and no exercise reveals that both mitochondrial and myofibrillar fractions of the muscles are stimulated to grow at a faster rate by enforced exercise but that the mitochondria respond more rapidly. 
A microscopical study of the innervation of flight muscles in the tsetse fly
TLDR
The gross morphology of the nervous system supplying the dorsal longitudinal flight muscles of tsetse flies is described and a detailed description of the neuromuscular junctions in the flight muscle is presented. Expand
Development of the locomotory muscle of the chaetognath Sagitta. 2. Stereological study of fibre growth and differentiation processes.
TLDR
These parameters reflect the organisation and the development of the fiber groups and cellular architecture and indicate the existence of unknown morphogenetic signals and fields, in this epithelial tissue having paracellular paths communicating with sea water. Expand
The effects of age and lifetime flight behavior on flight capacity in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Early senescence in the induced-flight group was likely due to the acceleration of deleterious aging phenomena such as the rapid accumulation of damage at the cellular level, while the early loss of flight capacity and low metabolic rates in the no- flight group demonstrate that disuse effects can also significantly alter senescences patterns of whole-insect performance.

The effect of host odour and carbon dioxide on the flight of tsetse flies (Glossina spp) in the laboratory
TLDR
The flight speed of males and females of both species was significantly reduced when ox Odour was added to the airstream and the number of flights which turned through ≥90°, over the period recorded was greater when ox odour was present. Expand
The contributions of life history and inter-individual variation to the study of energetic supply and demand in Bombus impatiens
In insects, flight energetics varies greatly among species but the source of this variation remains unknown. This thesis addresses phenotypic plasticity and matching of cellular and whole-animalExpand
Physiology of tsetse flies (Glossina spp.) (Díptera: Glossinidae): a review.
TLDR
The physiology of Glossina is dealt with under three major headings; reproductive, developmental and nutritional events in the life of this haematophagous and viviparous insect are discussed in relation to general principles of insect physiology gained from the study of other genera. Expand
Behavioural, morphological, and metabolic maturation of newly emerged adult workers of the bumblebee, Bombus impatiens.
TLDR
Bumblebees, as other adult insects, thus begin flights prior to fully maturing, and maturation trajectories of adult bumblebee workers (Bombus impatiens) are charted for both morphological and flight muscle metabolic capacities, and compared these to the first age at flight. Expand
Ovarian Changes During the Climacteric
TLDR
This chapter will consider the events of ovarian aging from a structural point of view and greater emphasis will be placed on those morphologic changes that characterize the human ovary between cessation of reproduction and senescence. Expand
Vision and genesis of survival strategies in tsetse flies: A laboratory study.
Organisms respond to environmental stimuli in ways that optimize survival and reproduction. Tsetse fly life-history is characterized by high investment in progeny by the pregnant female and low birthExpand

TLDR
It is suggested that the “giant” mitochondria in the flight muscles of the house fly arise primarily by an age-related fusion of smaller mitochondria. Expand

TLDR
Fine structural changes in mitochondrial morphology pertaining to size, number and growth were examined in flight muscles of normal and experimentally dewinged male Drosphila melanogaster ranging up to 26 days of age to examine the relative effects of age and flight activity on the mitochondria.

Further evidence is presented that exercise training in man stimulates mitochondrial growth, oxidative capacity, and capacity for syntheses of glycogen and lipid. Expand
POST‐TENERAL DEVELOPMENT OF THORACIC FLIGHT MUSCULATURE IN THE TSETSE‐FLIES GLOSSINA AUSTEN1 AND G. MORSITANS
TLDR
It is concluded that the rate rather than the extent of muscle development is affected by laboratory maintenance conditions, and the failure of 7 days‐old laboratory held adult tsetse‐flies to survive well after release into the field is considered to be due to a behavioural abnormality rather than a physiological deterioration.

AGE CHANGES IN SIZE AND NUMBER OF THE GIANT MITOCHONDRIA IN THE FLIGHT MUSCLE OF THE COMMON HOUSEFLY (MUSCA DOMESTICA L.).
TLDR
From observations of specific changes in the populations of differently sized sarcosomes it is inferred that multiplication, growth, and lysis of mitochondria are continuous processes throughout the life-span of the flies, but that their rates differ with age. Expand
