McCue M, Welch K. (13)C-Breath testing in animals: theory, applications, and future directions. J Comp Physiol B. 2016;186:265-85 pubmed publisher
..Lastly, we call for increased and rigorous use of (13)C-breath testing to explore a variety of new research areas and potentially answer long standing questions related to thermobiology, locomotion, and nutrition. ..
McCue M, Boardman L, Clusella Trullas S, Kleynhans E, Terblanche J. The speed and metabolic cost of digesting a blood meal depends on temperature in a major disease vector. J Exp Biol. 2016;219:1893-902 pubmed publisher
..Collectively these results suggest there are at least two thermal optima in a given population at any time and flies switch dynamically between optima throughout feeding cycles. ..
McCue M, Salinas I, Ramirez G, Wilder S. The postabsorptive and postprandial metabolic rates of praying mantises: Comparisons across species, body masses, and meal sizes. J Insect Physiol. 2016;93-94:64-71 pubmed publisher
..We conclude that mantises provide a promising model to investigate nutritional physiology of insect predators as well as nutrient cycling within their ecological communities. ..
McCue M, Terblanche J, Benoit J. Learning to starve: impacts of food limitation beyond the stress period. J Exp Biol. 2017;220:4330-4338 pubmed publisher
..We also describe outstanding unknowns ripe for future research regarding the timing and severity of starvation, and concerning the persistence of these responses and their interactions with other ecological stressors...
