- ... Many insects survive seasonal adversities during diapause, a form of programmed developmental and metabolic arrest. Photoperiodically regulated entry into diapause allows multivoltine insect species to optimize the number of generations. The molecular mechanism of the photoperiodic timer is unknown in insects. In the present study, we take advantage of the robust reproductive diapause response in ...

- ... Among univoltine insects that experience diapause, differences in emergence timing between adult males and females are expected to be dictated by sex-specific developmental factors. In multivoltine insects without a diapause, there is often an additional relationship between the date of oviposition and the date of adult emergence. Differences between male and female emergence timing in the latter ...
