Metabolic rate, evaporative water loss and field activity in response to temperature in an ichneumonid wasp

Tomlinson, S.; Phillips, Ryan


High ambient temperatures can adversely affect insects through high evaporative water loss (EWL) and reduction of metabolic activity through enzyme denaturation. Establishing the relationship between the temperature at which these processes become detrimental and regulatory behaviour is critical in resolving the mechanisms by which insects cope with physiologically stressful environments. Here, we compare levels of metabolic rate and EWL measured by flow-through respirometry with field activity...[Show more]
