Abstract: Most terrestrial animals live in natural atmospheric conditions, but some are also adapted to low oxygen (hypoxic) or high-carbon dioxide (hypercapnic) conditions, such as in social insect nests, soil, caves, wood, and decaying material. Although it is possible that individuals adapt their behaviour to the environmental condition of their habitats, mating behaviour under ecologically possible ranges of CO 2 has not been well studied. We compared walking activity, duration of mating behaviour, and sperm transf…
