Cold hardiness of Apteropanorpa tasmanica Carpenter (Mecoptera: Aperopanorpidae)

Palmer, Christopher; Siebke, Katharina

Description

There are very few investigations of cold hardiness in native Australian insects, and no such studies on insects from Tasmania. The Apteropanorpidae is a family of wingless Mecoptera endemic to Tasmania, comprising four described species that can be active in winter. In this study, we used infrared video thermography to investigate the physiological and behavioural responses of Apteropanorpa tasmanica to fast (0.3 °C min-1) and slow (0.03 °C min-1) rates of temperature reduction down to -10 °C....[Show more]
