Effect of temperature on development and survival in Delias nigrina (Fabricius) (Lepidoptera: Pieridae)

Braby, Michael; Lyonns, Kelly


The effect of temperature on rate of development and survival of the immature stages of a subtropical population of the black jezebel, Delias nigrina, was studied under laboratory conditions at a range of constant temperatures. Mean developmental times from first-instar larva to adult varied from 29 days at 27°C to 52 days at 19°C; the development threshold temperature and thermal constant were estimated to be 9°C and 494 degree-days, respectively. Larval developmental rates reached...[Show more]
