NEW PAPER OUT! Thermal tolerance of western corn rootworm: Critical thermal limits, knock-down resistance, and chill coma recovery

4th pub for 2022 just came out in┬áJournal of Thermal Biology! This work is the first paper from USDA and contains ideas that I have been wanting for test for years. We measured how ramping rate, starting temperature, genetic line, and sex affected critical thermal limits. We then expanded these ideas to look at knock-downContinue reading “NEW PAPER OUT!
