New paper in Current Opinion in Insect Science!

I am delighted to announce that our paper with Dr. Joshua Benoit from UC, Dr. David Denlinger from OSU and Dr. Claudio Lazzari from IRBI/CNRS in Current Opinion in Insect Science is now available online: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2214574518301445 Abstract: Blood feeding in arthropods has evolved in multiple lineages. This feeding preference provides a source of ample proteins and lipids for egg production and survival, but ingestion of a large warm blood-meal can boost the arthropod’s body temperature 15°-20 °C within seconds to minutes. This represents one of, if not the most, rapid thermal change documented under a natural setting. Here, we describe mechanisms of t
