Growth, stress and acclimation responses to fluctuating temperatures in field and domesticated populations of Manduca sexta

Joel Kingsolver, Joel Kingsolver, Megan Moore, Christina Hill & Kate Augustine
Diurnal fluctuations in temperature are ubiquitous in terrestrial environments, and insects and other ectotherms have evolved to tolerate or acclimate to such fluctuations. Few studies have examined whether ectotherms acclimate to diurnal temperature fluctuations, or how natural and domesticated populations differ in their responses to diurnal fluctuations. We examine how diurnally fluctuating temperatures during development affect growth, acclimation and stress responses for two populations of Manduca sexta: a field population that typically experiences wide variation...
