The influence of constant and fluctuating temperatures on development rate and survival of pupae of the Australian sheep blowfly Lucilia cuprina



The influence of constant and fluctuating temperatures on development rate and survival of pupae of the Australian sheep blowfly Lucilia cuprina



Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 361: 89-95



Functions describing instantaneous development rates in constant and natural temperature regimes were obtained for pupae of Lucilia cuprina. These were derived using a technique that directly calculates rate functions from development-time observations made under any temperature regime. The functions indicated similar instantaneous development rates for constant and natural temperatures up to 30 degrees C.
