Water Vapour Absorption by the Desert Burrowing Cockroach, Arenivaga Investigata: Evidence against a Solute Dependent Mechanism

Abstract

1. Solute concentrations were measured in the frontal bodies and hypopharyngeal bladder surfaces, which form the absorption system of Arenivaga. Measured values were compared with the concentrations necessary to lower relative humidity to the absorption threshold, 81% R.H. 2. The predominant inorganic solutes, measured by instrumental neutron activation… (More)
