How can you use “anatrepsis” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • According to Behrandt, diapause occurs at the end of anatrepsis (germband immersion) in Aphis fabae .

A resting stage is a widely reported characteristic of diapause [ 1 2 16 17 18 ] and so the extent to which diapause occurs generally in aphids is therefore in some doubt.
