A period of delayed development or growth accompanied by reduced metabolism and inactivity.
A period during which growth or development is suspended.
a period of time in the life cycle of insects where they don't grow or develop and their body functions slow down a lot.
A period of suspended development or growth.
a condition of arrested development.
A period of arrested growth. Diapause is an adaptation to cope with extreme environmental conditions, such as drought.
a period of arrested growth or reduced physiological activity, commonly induced by a seasonal change in photoperiod (i.e. day-length); a term used mainly for invertebrates, especially insects.
period in which there is no metabolic activity, which may occur during the development of the egg, caterpillar, chrysalis or adult.
a delay in development which facilitates survival during unfavorable times; roughly equivalent to hibernation
A period in the life cycle of an insect during which development is temporarily suspended.
hibernation (under the influence of short day length and low temperature)
A period during which the development of the insect is temporarily interrupted.
a period of dormancy induced by factors other than an unfavorable environment
A resting phase, often over-winter as egg or penultimate instar, to enable synchronised emergence the following spring.
a state of suspended animation. During diapause, development, growth and metabolic activity are reduced. In some insects diapause is obligate, while in others it is dependent on external stimuli and is regarded as an adaptation to increase the probability of survival during environmentally unfavourable conditions because it allows the insect to keep its life cycle synchronised with seasonal progression.
a period of dormancy in insects in which metabolic rate is reduced and growth and differentiation temporarily cease.
programmed period of metabolic inactivity; usually occurring as a mechanism of survival through environmentally unfavorable conditions.
A period of suspension in a butterfly's development. Diapause is "broken" when environmental conditions are right.
The state of arrested development in the immature stages of insects during which they pass unfavourable seasons for growth.
a state of rest. Like hibernation in mammals. Organisms in diapause use certain cues like temperature and light to activate it and deactivate it. Therefore, you must maintain environmental conditions acceptable for activity.
A period during which the egg or nymphal stages of life which ceases temporarily development.
Growth and Development is temporarily halted
A state of halted development. Insects typically overwinter in this state, waiting until spring to continue growing and molting or to finish pupating.
An extended period in which an insect has very little metabolic activity and is thus relatively inactive.
Period of inactivity caused by environmental factors
period of suspended growth or development and reduced metabolism in the life cycle of many insects, when organism is more resistant to unfavorable environmental conditions than in other periods
dii-ah-PAUZ) A quiescent state similar to hibernation. Insects will not feed or reproduce while undergoing diapause. Triggered by temperature and/or photoperiod.
a condition of suspended animation, or resting period, during which development ceases, as during the egg overwintering period.
a period of time when growth or development is suspended in insects and other invertebrates, it can usually only be ended the appropriate environmental stimulus.
another for hibernation. State of suspended animation used by female anopheline of temperate species to survive during the winter months.
a hibernation like state in insects
Suspension of life. e.g. Hibernation and aestivation.
A state of arrested development or growth, accompanied by greatly decreased metabolism, often correlated with the seasons, usually applied only to insects.
a period during which development is delayed, e.g., for overwintering.
an insect resting stage, usually induced by environmental signals or extreme conditions like winter or summer
A period of arrested development and reduced metabolic rate, during which growth, differentiation, and metamorphosis cease (a period of dormancy)
Diapause is a period of suspended growth or development in the life of some insects, mites, snails and crustaceans. Butterflies and moths enter diapause when the weather is too severe or food or water is unavailable.
