Abstract
Several attempts have been made to relate differences in the resistance to desiccation of certain species of tsetse fly to differences in their habitat requirements (Buxton and Lewis, 1934; Jackson, 1945; Geigy and Huber, 1952); the general impression gained is that specific differences, if they exist at all, are of doubtful significance. But only a few species have been studied and the techniqtres employed cannot be considered to have been altogether adequate. For this reason it was thought that a more extensive comparative study of water balance would be worthwhile.
