Abstract

Earthworms, L. mauritii, were acclimated to cold (20°)​, warm (35°)​, or normal (28°) temps. for >15 days. An ext. was obtained from the nonsaponifiable sterol fraction of nervous tissue of the worms. The alc. ext. from the cold-​acclimated worms increased the respiration of tissue from normal worms, whereas the ext. from warm-​acclimated worms decreased the tissue respiration. The results indicated the presence of one or more hormone-​like factors in the nervous tissue of the worms.
