Osmoregulation

  • Marie Raabe

Abstract

Control of water metabolism in insects is achieved in a variety of ways depending on their mode of life, aquatic or terrestrial, and the nature of their diet. For some insects the elimination of water is a vital problem. For others there is a constant struggle against the lack of water; their small size, large surface area, and intense respiratory metabolism lead to considerable loss of water.
