Adults of the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst.) , show a differential rate in their respiratory metabolism within a narrow temperature range (30-35C). An initial rapid increase followed by a comparatively slower rise in the respiratory metabolic rate occurs within this range. This phenomenon is dearly reflected in the Q10 characteristics of these insects, which show a higher value between 30-32C and a comparatively lower value between 32-35C.
