Rourke ABSTRACT The importance of respiratory patterns and the physical properties of cuticular lipids to insect water balance were investigated in natural populations of the grasshopper Melanoplus sanguinipes . I specifically test the hypotheses that patterns of discontinuous ventilation...

...John R. B. Lighton; Dana A. Garrigan; Frances D. Duncan; Robert A. Johnson ABSTRACT It has been suggested that the discontinuous ventilation cycle (DVC) observed in many insects, including all ants described to date, is an adaptation to reduce respiratory water loss. To test this hypothesis...

...John R. B. Lighton; Barry G. Lovegrove ABSTRACT It is known that many insects emit CO 2 in widely spaced ‘bursts’ or discontinuous ventilation events, usually characterized by active abdominal ventilation. We describe the discontinuous CO 2 emission characteristics of the honeybee (Apis mellifera...
