For the study of certain aspects of insect development it is generally desirable to carry out experiments in an atmosphere of which the temperature and humidity remains constant over long intervals of time. The particular system of control to be used will depend on a) whether the air is limited to a confined space, as for example in small cabinets for experiments on insects, in which the same air is used over and over again or b) whether there is a continuous supply of fresh air, as is for instance the case in general air-conditioning in houses. In this paper case a) only will be considered.
