Title: Some Reactions of Two Desert Beetles Adesmia Antiqua and Pimelia Grandis to Temperature
Author: El Rayah, El Amin
Abstract: A comparative study of the reactions of two desert beetles, Adesmia antiqua Klug and Pimelia grandis Klug to temperature was made. A. antiqua preferred warmer temperatures between 20° and 40° C, P. grandis between 20° and 33°. The latter aggregated in a temperature zone of 28–34° whereas A. antiqua aggregated in a zone between 34–38°. Lethal temperatures of P. grandis and A. antiqua were 43° and 46° respectively for exposure of 24 hrs. Survival time at different temperatures and the effect of light on temperature reactions were also investigated.
