Effects of temperature on the development, longevity and fecundity of nala lividipes (dufour) (dermaptera: labiduridae) [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
The influence of temperature on the development and survival of Nala lividipes was determined for eggs at constant temperatures, and for nymphs at constant and fluctuating temperatures. Adult longevity and fecundity were also assessed at constant temperatures. Eggs failed to hatch at 15 and 18°C. Survival was low at 20, 32.5 and 35 °C, but was relatively constant, at a mean of 64.3%, for temperatures between 22 and 30°C. Survival of nymphs was maximal at 29 °C. Linear models adequately described the development rates of eggs and nymphs reared at the constant temperatures. The nymph model was an unsuitable descriptor of development of nymphs under fluctuating temperatures, and a new linear model was required. The sex ratio at any temperature did not differ significantly from 1:1. Oviposition did not occur at 20 °C; it increased to a maximum at 30.5 °C before declining. There were insignificant differences in longevity between males and mated or virgin females. Longevity was inversely related to temperature. Population increases are possible between 22 and 32.5°C, with a doubling time of 1.9 weeks at 30°C.
