Phenotypic plasticity and geographic variation in thermal tolerance and water loss of the tsetse Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Glossinidae): implications for distribution modelling
Using the tsetse, Glossina pallidipes, we show that physiologic plasticity (resulting from temperature acclimation) accounts for among-population variation in thermal tolerance and water loss rates. Critical thermal ...
The effects of temperature, body mass and feeding on metabolic rate in the tsetse fly, Glossina morsitans centralis
Metabolic rate variation with temperature, body mass, gender and feeding status is documented for Glossina morsitans centralis . Metabolic rate [mean ± SE; VCO2 = 19.78 ± 3.11 uL CO 2 h −1 in males (mean mass = 22.72 ± ...
The relative contributions of developmental plasticity and adult acclimation to physiological variation in the tsetse fly, Glossina pallidipes (Diptera, Glossinidae)
Recent reviews of the adaptive hypotheses for animal responses to acclimation have highlighted the importance of distinguishing between developmental and adult (non-developmental) phenotypic plasticity. However, little ...
Stage-related variation in rapid cold hardening as a test of the environmental predictability hypothesis
The environmental predictability (EP) hypothesis proposes that rapid cold hardening (RCH) might be common in temperate species incapable of surviving freezing events and which also dwell in unpredictable environments. The ...
