|Title:||SURVIVAL AND MOLTING INCIDENCE IN TRIATOMA-INFESTANS KLUG (HEMIPTERA, REDUVIIDAE) AFTER TEMPERATURE SHOCKS|
|Abstract:||Survival and molting occurrence were studied in specimens of Triatoma infestans over 30 days after temperature shocks. Hyperthermal and hypotermal shocks could be found to affect both survival and molting incidence as a function of temperature and period of the developement phase and sex of the specimens. Considering the various test conditions, the shock at 0-degrees-C for 12 h was found to elicit the most deleterious effect, whereas shocks at 40-degrees-C and 0-degrees-C even for 1 h are interpreted as affecting the hormonal balance which controls molting. Cases of a rise in post-shock survival are suggested to have been favored by heat-shock protein action.|
