The respiration and visible development of Mud Wasp larvae and of Grasshopper eggs have been followed after X-irradiation. It has been found that light doses of X-ray caused temporary alterations and heavy doses caused permanent suppression after some development had taken place. It has also been found that inactivity during and following the irradiation increased the resistance to the X-radiation.
