Organisms inhabiting metal-contaminated areas can be stressed by metal exposure and are possibly subject to selection, resulting in increased metal tolerance and changes in growth and/or reproduction characteristics. In a previous study it was found that in the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber, sampled from the vicinity of a zine smelter, the body size was small and the brood size was Cited by: Porcellio Scaber “Rough Isopod Care Sheet.

Rough Isopods. Porcellio Scaber. Rough Isopods, known by their Latin name, Porcellio scaber, are very easy to grow, house and care for. They can take wild extremes in temps and I have raised them in dry and very wet conditions without any interruption in growth and breeding.

The terrestrial isopod, Porcellio scaber, was susceptible to subzero temperature: both freezing and chilling were injurious.

The level of cold hardiness against chilling and freezing showed different patterns in their seasonal variation. The lower lethal temperature causing 50% mortality, an indicator of the tolerance to chilling, ranged from°C in August to°C in by: a, v';/I ELSEVIER Environmental Pollution 99 () ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION Reduced survival and body size in the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber from a metal-polluted environment D.T.

Individuals of woodlice (Porcellio scaber, Latreille ) were collected from a control site near the town Myszków, Southern specimens of 10–15 mm in length and a mean body mass of 50 mg were selected in the test.

Both sexes of woodlice were used and kept in groups of 10 in plastic boxes (16 × 10 × 5 cm), with a 5 mm gypsum bottom to keep the moisture, in a h light:dark.

Although it is a native of Europe it must have arrived in this country along with the first european settlers.

Woodlice are often found in the upper layers of compost heaps, under rotting planks or logs, under sacks or stones and in other. Reinhard Dallinger (born 2 April in Laives, South Tyrol) is an Austrian zoologist and professor of zoology and ecotoxicology at the University of Innsbruck (retired since 1 October ).

He works in the field of biochemistry and physiology of trace element metabolism of invertebrate animals and in the field of environmental toxicology of metals in terrestric and aquatic : Zoology.

In isopods from mesic habitats (Oniscus, Porcellio, Armadillidium) photoreaction becomes of less significance than in littoral species, until in some species it reverts to positive (Armadillidium). Sometimes the positive photoreaction occurs only at high temperatures (Porcellio), a pattern of behavior correlated with thermoregulation by.

The exoskeletal surface of the body of the terrestrial isopod, Porcellio scaber has been examined with the scanning electron microscope as part of a study of the structural changes associated with the transition from sea to land in the Isopoda.

No sexual differences are apparent. The dorsal cuticular surface is characterized by large tubercles, minute plaques and pits, separated by amorphous Cited by: The aim of our study was to set benchmark values for feeding parameters for isopod Porcellio scaber (Isopoda, Crustacea) in laboratory-controlled experiments.

Environmental temperatures and oxygen availability are important for the balance between oxygen supply and demand. Terrestrial organisms are generally perceived to be less limited by access to oxygen than their aquatic counterparts.

Nevertheless, even terrestrial environments can be deficient in oxygen, especially for organisms occurring in soil, litter, wood, rotten fruit or at high : Andrzej Antoł, Wiktoria Rojek, Sanjeev Singh, Damian Piekarski, Marcin Czarnoleski.

The experiment’s hypothesis is that the isopods, otherwise known as Armadillidium Vulgare, would orient themselves toward a moist environment.
