Resumen: "Water availability is recognized as one of the most important factors in the distribution and activity of
terrestrial organisms. In the case of insects, hydric stress imposes a major challenge for survival because
of the small surface-area-to-volume ratio they exhibit. In general, stress resistance is expected to co-vary
positively with size"
