 en SHORT COMMUNICATION - Thermal Constant of an Experimental Population of Muscina stabulans check for this species in other resources (Fallén 1817) (Diptera:Muscidae) in the Laboratory
Luciene Maura Mascarini & Ângelo Pires do Prado


A study was conducted to investigate the thermal constant in an experimental population of Muscina stabulans check for this species in other resources (Fallén 1817). A natural population was obtained from a livestock and their F1 generations were maintained at four constant temperatures (16°C, 20°C, 26°C and 31°C). The thermal constant was calculated by the hyperbole method using the base temperature, tb = 4.4°C and the thermal constant K = 35.3 GD. Ricker's geometric regression, considering tb = 7.8°C and K = 28.9 GD was also calculated.
