...% of their osmotically active water (OAW). Survival rates were further increased when rehydration was performed at 100% RH, rather than by direct contact with water. Two days at 98.2% RH resulted in a ∼30% loss of OAW, and dramatically increased the freeze tolerance of larvae to –10 and –15°C. The supercooling point...

.... Here, we report a novel role for RCH by showing that RCH also increases freezing tolerance in an Antarctic midge, Belgica antarctica (Diptera, Chironomidae). The RCH response of B. antarctica was investigated under two distinct physiological states: summer acclimatized and cold acclimated. Summer...

... of the goldenrod gall fly Eurosta solidaginis Fitch (Diptera, Tephritidae). From September to December, hemolymph osmolality(455-926 mOsmol kg l -1 ) and freezing tolerance increased markedly in field-collected larvae. Chlorophenol Red was readily transported into the lumen of the foregut, the posterior portion...

...% relative humidity and 15°C. In water the nematodes are seeded by exogenous ice nucleation and a proportion are freezing tolerant. Ice formation appears to be restricted to the pseudocbel. The degree of freezing tolerance is dependent upon the age of the culture and its thermal history. P. davidi...
