Abstract

Larvae (on an artificial diet) and pupae of Heliothis armigera (Hb.) were maintained at 7 constant temperatures ranging from 13.1 to 38.4 deg C. A threshold temperature of 11.0 deg C and a temperature sum for development from hatching of the eggs to adult emergence of 475 day-degrees were estimated. It was also estimated that the maximum rate of development was 33.9 deg C.
