Both vertebrates and molluscs (e.g. oysters) become more susceptible to disease after exposure to a stressor. Indirect evidence suggested that insects may become less susceptible to disease when exposed to stress. If true, this would force us to reconsider our hypotheses about the possible adaptive significance of stress-induced immunosuppression. We tested the effect of crowding, physical exercise, restraint, flight, heat, cold, agonistic behaviour and elevated levels of the flight-or-fight… Expand
