oreganus in the Okanagan Valley of southern British Columbia overlap the period of ecdysis
in late summer; males often court and mate within 48 h following ecdysis
(Macartney and Gregory 1988).
Another effect observed was that some larvae died due to treatments with higher concentrations (500, 1000 and 5000 mg [kg.sup.-1]) during ecdysis
and failed to release the old endocuticle (Figure 3A), thus indicating that the extract caused a disturbance in the endocrine system of the larvae, thereby preventing completion of morphogenesis.
ETH is a small C-terminally amidated peptide, known as a major regulator of ecdysis
in insects [142, 143].

Thermoregulation facilitates quicker digestion of meals, decreases gestation time of gravid females, and is critical during ecdysis
. Therefore, thermoregulation might be the most important factor in determining squamate habitat use patterns (Grant 1990, Peterson et al.
Adaptations of the branchial ectoparasite Probopyrus pandalicola (Isopoda: Bopyridae) for survival and reproduction related to ecdysis
of the host, Palaemonetes pugio (Caridea: Palaemonidae).
The presence of exuviae, mortality and date of imago emergence were recorded daily at the same hour of the day to estimate the development time and survival of each immature stage (ecdysis
Shedding completed in a healthy reptile is referred to as ecdysis
. Failure to shed completely can cause problems.
The novel's title, "The Skin Beneath," refers to the "Ecdysis
Conspiracy" (possibly named by Chloe herself), which in turn refers to the natural process by which snakes shed their outer skins to reveal new skin beneath.
There was suppression of ecdysis
and 100% mortality of Cotesia congregata, hymenopteran parasitoid of Manduca sexta.
