... in the anterior body with emphasis on the arrangement of the pathways for airflow. The fly's head is preferentially supplied by cephalic tracheae originating from the ventral orifice of the mesothoracic spiracle (Sp1). The respiratory airflow during flight is a by-product of cyclic deformations of the thoracic...

... to the accumulation of CO 2 . Periodic heartbeat reversals continue during flight, with a higher period frequency than at rest, supporting the transport of CO 2 via the haemolymph towards the metathoracic tracheae and abdominal air sacs. Diffusion alone in small insects was regarded as sufficient for respiratory...

.... In the blowfly, as in other insects with periodic heartbeat reversal, the haemolymph is periodically shifted between the anterior body and abdomen, exerting alternating pressure changes on the compliant tracheae in the thorax and in the abdomen. Simultaneous pressure and O 2 optode measurements show that, during...
