The respiration of insects at reduced pressures. I. The expiration of carbon dioxide by Tenebrioides mauritanicus (L.)

, : The respiration of insects at reduced pressures. I. The expiration of carbon dioxide by Tenebrioides mauritanicus (L.). Ent. exp. appl, Amsterdam, 5: 2, 79-87

The experiments described were carried out in view of lack of knowledge of the physiological responses of insects to vacuum fumigation and the unexpected mortality results obtained by Monro when insects were subjected to reduced air pressure, and the following is virtually the authors' summary of the results.
