Article

Summary

The influence of low atmospheric pressures and low oxygen concentrations on 0-24-h-oldEphestia cautella (Wlk.) pupae at 26°C was determined. Effects on respiration, insect mortality and loss in weight obtained, were due to low oxygen tension only, at both normal and low atmospheric pressure.
