Abstract

IN lepidopterous insects (in which diapause occurs in the pupal stage), the pupal brain is activated by treatment by low temperature1–5. It has not yet been established, however, whether artificially diapausing, brainless pupæ (dauer pupæ) are activated by low temperature. Therefore, this question has been investigated by chilling dauer pupæ of the silkworm, Bombyx mori.
