... create problems for oxygen delivery in older animals? We forced developing American locust grasshoppers ( Schistocerca americana ) to jump repeatedly and examined the effect of development on power output, endurance, lactate concentration, oxygen consumption and the oxygen sensitivity of jump performance...

...) for the American locust Schistocerca americana . We also compare the P c for oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide emission to verify that our P c for CO 2 emission truly reflected the P c for oxygen delivery. In addition,we examine the effect of hypoxia exposure time on the P c for CO 2 emission...

... pressure( P O ) for first-, third- and fifth-instar juveniles and adults of the American locust Schistocerca americana . We found that late-stage grasshoppers tended to have 40% higher total CO 2 emission rates but 15% lower mass-specific CO 2 emission rates and 35% higher ventilation frequencies than...

...JEAN G. MALAMUD; ROBERT K. JOSEPHSON The force-velocity relationships during isotonic shortening were determined for the metathoracic second tergocoxal muscle of the locust Schistocerca americana (Drury). This muscle is a synchronous flight muscle. During the plateau of a tetanic contraction...

...R. F. CHAPMAN; A. ASCOLI-CHRISTENSEN; P. R. WHITE The electrophysiological responses of sensilla on the tibia of Schistocerca americana (Drury) to six compounds were examined. All the compounds were shown to cause feeding deterrence at high concentrations. Nicotine hydrogen tartrate, quinine...
