- Metabolic rate and hypoxia tolerance are affected by group interactions and sex in the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster): new data and a literature survey
Summary: Technical advances allowing oxygen consumption measurement in individual fruit flies actually take them out of their normal highly social context, resulting in higher oxygen consumption rates than in natural groups.
- Thermal biology of the sub-polar–temperate estuarine crab Hemigrapsus crenulatus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Varunidae)
Summary: The preferred temperature of the intertidal temperate crab Hemigrapsus crenulatus was determined to be between 12°C and 25°C. Oceanic warming would trap this species between tropical and polar temperatures, causing increasing population stress with unknown ecological consequences.
