    The advantage of using terrestrial isopods in toxicity studies is that a battery of parameters can be tested at different levels of biological complexity. Feeding parameters for example link organism level response to potential ecological consequences but a problem with using feeding parameters...

    The article reports on intake and assimilation of zinc, copper, and cadmium in the terrestrial isopod "Porceilo scaber Latr. (Crustacea, Isopoda). Terrestrial isopods are organisms of choice in metal and pesticide toxicity studies. Laboratory experiments have shown that elevated concentrations...

    The reproductive success of female Gnathia marleyi (Crustacea: Isopoda) was examined among individuals from eight species belonging to five families of common Caribbean reef fishes of St. John, US Virgin Islands that differ in susceptibility to G. marleyi infestation. Fish were placed in cages...

    Nanoparticles of titanium dioxide are one of most widely used nanomaterials in different products in everyday use and in industry, but very little is known about their effects on non- target cells and tissues. Terrestrial isopods were exposed to food dosed with nano-TiO2 to give final nominal...

    When the selective environment differs geographically, local herbivore populations may diverge in their host use ability and adapt locally to exploit the sympatric host population. We tested whether populations of the marine generalist herbivore Idotea baltica have diverged in host us ability...

    Since any given trait of an organism is considered to represent either an adaptation to the environment or a phylogenetic constraint, most physiological gut characteristics should be adaptive in terms of optimizing digestion and utilization of the respective food source. Among the Crustacea, the...

    Terrestrial isopods (Crustacea) are macro decomposers of organic matter and bio - accumulators of metals. Soil management and farming practices have changed the population dynamics of isopods, jeopardizing the balance of agro ecosystems. We investigated the potential of preserved forest areas as...
