Physiological effects of hypoxia in developing and adult honeybees Apis mellifera L

Physiological effects of hypoxia in developing and adult honeybees Apis mellifera L

Zhurnal Evoliutsionnoi Biokhimii i Fiziologii 47(6): 475-479

The effect of hypoxia on activity of metabolism was studied in developing and adult honeybees. The feedback was established between the O2 deficit in the gas medium and its consumption by honeybees. An elevation of temperature within the limits of vital diapason for development of honeybees activated O2 consumption regardless of the hypoxia level. A prolonged action of hypoxia on the O2 physiological state was revealed. There was shown the existence of convergent similarity between the effect of O2 deficit on honeybees and on homoiothermal animals.
