... understood. Here, we used three insect species with different thermal tolerances (the honey bee, Apis mellifera ; the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster ; and the potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata ) to characterize the thermal sensitivity of different metabolic enzymes. Specifically, we measured...

We found that the presence of both single food-derived odorants and complex odor mixtures enhanced consumption of an appetitive food. Feeding enhancement depended on the concentration and the chemical identity of the odorant. Volatile...
