... during development. We predicted that juvenile crickets should produce only those compounds that contribute to desiccation resistance, while those compounds contributing specifically to male attractiveness should be produced only at sexual maturity. Further, if attractive CHCs come at a cost...

... the thermal tolerance, desiccation resistance, metabolic rate and seasonal performance adjustments of endemic and invasive bees in Fiji. The two invasive species tended to be more resistant to thermal and desiccation stress than H. fijiensis , while H. fijiensis had greater capacity to adjust their CT max...

J Exp Biol (2019) 222 (6): jeb192534.
Published: 27 March 2019
.... There was no evidence for metabolic water from stored nutrients extending desiccation resistance. Our findings show the possibility of a nutrient-poor larval environment leading to correlated improvement in adult performance, at least in the short term. Larval diet has a short-term effect on desiccation...

As melanism has a genetic component, we selected melanic and non-melanic phenotypes of D. melanogaster in order to confirm the association of desiccation resistance and rate of water loss with cuticular melanisation previously reported for this species.

Moreover, it should be kept in mind that body size can affect desiccation resistance not only via variation in water loss rates,but also via variation in water content( Lighton et al., 1994 ; Chown et al., 1995 ). The inclusion of CF-period and O-period...
