Effect of age, ambient temperature, and exposure to hormone on the posteclosion diuretic response of the monarch butterfly

  • R. M. Dores
  • W. S. Herman


The monarch butterfly loses sensitivity to the posteclosion diuretic hormone of this species within 12 h of eclosion. This de-sensitization can be accelerated by exposure to the diuretic hormone, and decelerated by both hormone deficiency and reduced temperature.
