How is diapause different from hibernation?

Solution:

Diapause is a phase of suspended development in an insect, other invertebrates, or mammal embryo, to deal with undesirable conditions. Several species of Zooplankton and insects go through diapause to pass through extreme climatic conditions while the development stage is still going on. Whereas winter sleep or Hibernation is an inactive phase resembling deep sleep wherein animals escape winters by hiding themselves in their shelters. They do so by decreasing their metabolism and entering into an inactive state. This process of hibernation is observed in squirrels, bats, and some rodents.
