Thermal tolerance in a south-east African population of the tsetse fly Glossina pallidipes (Diptera, Glossinidae) : implications for forecasting climate change impacts
For tsetse (Glossina spp.), the vectors of human and animal trypanosomiases, the physiological mechanisms linking variation in population dynamics with changing weather conditions have not been well established. Here, we ...
Critical thermal limits depend on methodological context
(Royal Society of Publishing, 2007)
A full-factorial study of the effects of rates of temperature change and start temperatures was undertaken for both upper and lower critical thermal limits (CTLs) using the tsetse fly, Glossina pallidipes. Results show ...
Investigating onychophoran gas exchange and water balance as a means to inform current controversies in arthropod physiology
(The Company of Biologists, 2008-08)
Several controversies currently dominate the fields of arthropod metabolic rate, gas exchange and water balance, including the extent to which modulation of gas exchange reduces water loss, the origins of discontinuous gas ...
