Evolution of Cold Tolerance Strategies in Insects
Keywords:cold-hardiness, insects, evolution
The hypotheses on the problem of evolution of the main strategies of insects cold-hardiness are contemplated in the review. The present-day conceptions on the role of diapause in the development of insects cold-hardiness are described. The possible ways of origin of the main biochemical components of cold-hardiness, polyols and sugars, ice-nucleating and antifreeze proteins, are discussed.
