oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - The effect of constant high temperatures on the embryonic development and pulsations of the lateral bodywall in Locustana pardalina (Walk) (Orthoptera, Acrididae )

Volume 17, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The effect of temperature on the rate of pulsation of the lateral body-wall of embryos at two different developmental stages was determined. It was concluded that if used as a physiological indicator, these pulsations would presumably not give a true picture of velocity of embryonic growth.
