Differences in thermal requirements for diapause termination in 2 western choristoneura spp lepidoptera tortricidae

, : Differences in thermal requirements for diapause termination in 2 western choristoneura spp lepidoptera tortricidae. Canadian Entomologist 109(11): 1469-1474

Storage of diapausing larvae of C. viridis and C. occidentalis at low temperature ( C) appeared to be sufficient stimulus to terminate diapause. Reactivation at C occurred sooner and was more synchronous with longer storage at C. Highest survival was obtained after storage of 20-22 wk for both C. viridis and C. occidentalis. Intraspecific and interspecific reactivation rates were compared by analysis of covariance, using the model ln Y = a + B ln X, where Y = larval emergence in days at C and X = storage in weeks at C. Intraspecific sex differences were not significant, indicating that protandry observed in this laboratory in both species must be due to some other factor. C. viridis had substantially less stringent thermal requirements for diapause termination than C. occidentalis. Diapause in the 2 spp. is discussed.

Red porgy larvae, like other sparids such as red seabream are visual feeders. The normal development of the visual system is essential for successful prey capture and predator avoidance, leading to increased larval growth and survival. The aim of...

We report now an investigation by biochemical, morphological, and mechanical studies of the time course effects of muscle den...
