Environmental impacts on diapause and survival of the alfalfa leafcutting bee, Megachile rotundata

Elisabeth Wilson, Claire Murphy, Covey Wong, Joseph Rinehart, George Yocum & Julia Bowsher
Megachile rotundata exhibits a facultative prepupal diapause but the cues regulating diapause initiation are not well understood. Possible cues include daylength and temperature. Megachile rotundata females experience changing daylengths over the nesting season that may influence diapause incidence in their offspring through a maternal effect. Juvenile M. rotundata spend their developmental period confined in a nesting cavity, potentially subjected to stressful temperatures that may affect diapause incidence and survival. To estimate the impact of daylength...
