Reversible arrest of uptake of water from subsaturated atmospheres by the firebrat, Thermobia domestica (Packard)


, : Reversible arrest of uptake of water from subsaturated atmospheres by the firebrat, Thermobia domestica (Packard). Journal of Experimental Biology 62(3): 657-669

A novel experimental technique incorporating a double-chambered array, which allows the independent and reversible exposure of head and tail ends of an insect to the surrounding atmosphere, without otherwise altering the constraints on the insect, is described. With this technique, it was possible to demonstrate that rapid uptake of water from subsaturated atmospheres occurs in Thermobia domestica (Pack.) only when the tail-end is exposed.

We consider the problem of light scattering in a slab of cholesteric liquid crystal with the pitch which significantly exceeds the wavelength of light. The electromagnetic wave propagation and the Green's function are investigated for this me...
