THE BEHAVIOUR OF NYMPHS OF SCHISTOCERCA GREGARIA (FORSKÅL) (ORTHOPTERA, ACRIDIDAE) IN A TEMPERATURE GRADIENT, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO TEMPERATURE PREFERENCE by R. F. CHAPMAN 1) (Birkbeck College, London, U.K.) (With 10 Figures) (Rec. 10-VI-1964) INTRODUCTION Previous work on nymphs of Locusta rnigratoria L. (CHAPMAN, 1955) suggested that their temperature preference might be altered by varying the conditions to which they had been subjected immediately before the experi- ment. Subsequently field work on the red locust, Novrzadacris septern f asciata (Serville), pointed to the importance of preconditioning and change as factors governing more general aspects of behaviour (CHAPMAN, 1959; 1959a) and the need for a full laboratory investigation became apparent. As a result the series of experiments to be described was started in the hopes that temperature preference might be used as a measure of a preconditioning effect. This hope was not fulfilled, but a fairly thorough study of tempe- rature preference and the possible mechanisms responsible for the pheno- menon has been made. METHODS The apparatus used was designed by GUNN (1934) and is probably the most satisfactory of its kind with minimal variations in temperature across 1) I am indebted to my friends at the Anti-Locust Research
