Abstract

Insects are sometimes useful as models in the study of effects of environmental factors on development and life span. At Beltsville, in the Chemical and Biophysical Control Laboratory, Sullivan et al. (1969) determined that manipulation of the photoperiod affects the rate of weight gain in the cockroach, Leucophaea maderae (F.).
