Equilibrium weights of Dermacentor variabilis Say. at near saturation (Acarina: Ixodidae)
1972 - Volume: 14 Issue: 3 pages: 365-367
effect of temperature
The equilibrium weight of Dermacentor variabilis (Say) under constant conditions at over 98% R.H. was found to be a function of temperature. In the range 5-40 deg C, the maximum weight was found at 20 deg C. The equilibrium weight was maintained by an active process.
