Klinokinetic and klinotactic humidity reactions of the beetles Hylobius abietis and Tenebrio molitor



Klinokinetic and klinotactic humidity reactions of the beetles Hylobius abietis and Tenebrio molitor



Physiological Entomology 52: 133-140



The effects of spatially uniform but temporally changing air humidity stimuli on the orientation behaviour of Hylobius abietis (L.) and Tenebrio molitor L. were studied in a specially constructed vertical air-flow chamber. Moist-acclimatised but hygronegative adults of H. abietis were exposed for 10 s to a moist air stream (about 85% RH) and then for 10 s to a dry air stream (about 50% RH). The Tenebrio adults were divided into two groups, acclimatised to moist or dry air.
