5. Thermal boldness: volunteer exploration of extreme temperatures in fruit flies.

A dominant perception is that small and motile ectothermic animals must use behavior to avoid exposure to critical or sub-critical temperatures impairing physiological performance. Concomitantly, volunteer exploration of extreme environments by some individuals may promote physiological adjustments ...

6. PKG acts in the adult corpora cardiaca to regulate nutrient stress-responsivity through adipokinetic hormone.

In Drosophila melanogaster, the adipokinetic hormone (AKH) is a glucagon-like peptide that acts antagonistically with insulin-like peptides to maintain metabolic homeostasis. AKH is biosynthesized in and secreted from the corpora cardiaca (CC). This report describes a CC-specific role for dg2 -...

7. Allocation of more reproductive resource to egg size rather than clutch size of gregarious desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria) through increasing oogenesis period and oosorption rate.

The desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria, shows a density-dependent reproductive trade-off by laying fewer but larger eggs in crowded conditions (gregarious phase) than in isolated conditions (solitarious phase). However, the physiological mechanisms controlling reproductive resource allocation...
