Water absorption by the eggs of crickets
Canadian Journal of Zoology 37 (4), 391-399
Abstract: The amount of water absorbed by Acheta configuratus, Gryllodes sigillatus and two strains of Acheta domesticus during embryonic development varies according to species and strain from 60 to 120% of the weight of newly laid eggs and absorption is more rapid at 33° than 28°C. The stage during which it takes place is the same in all these species and strains. Incubation periods at various temperatures are given.
