Temperature is one of the most important environmental factors affecting the biological processes of aquatic species. To investigate the potential effects of temperature on the developmental processes of aquatic invertebrates, we analyzed biological and molecular transcriptional responses during Chironomus riparius development, including five stages spanning from embryo to adult stages. We assessed the temperature change-induced reduction of survival rate, changes in biological development… CONTINUE READING
