Abstract

The effect of gamma radiation on aspects of the biology of A. ipsilon (Hufn.) exposed as pupae in the laboratory in Egypt. Adult emergence was reduced, and the rate of malformation in survivors increased, as the radiation dose increased, the effect being greater in females than in males. Exposure of mature pupae to 200 Gy reduced mating in the ensuing adults and induced sterility in females, whereas 250 Gy was required for male sterility. Female fecundity was reduced proportionally to the treatment dose. Irradiation of females at any given dose always caused greater sterility than did irradiation of males at the same dose, but treatment of both partners of a mating pair reduced fertility more markedly than did treatment of either sex separately
