Terrestrial isopods are found where the humidity is relatively high; they are nocturnal and cryptozoic.
Fauna that assimilated little label (spionid polychaete, anthurid isopod, American eel) obtained [greater than]90% of their nitrogen from a pathway based on plant detritus, or from older, nonlabeled diatom detritus.
Among isopods, algal preference was unrelated to feeding and growth in Idotea baltica (Nicotri 1980), and to energy uptake in Ligia pallasi (Carefoot 1973).
For example, Piertney and Carvalho (1995) documented large monthly fluctuations in allelic frequencies in populations of the intertidal isopod Jaera albifrons; they concluded that while occupying the same rock, the assemblages of animals sampled over monthly intervals differed more than could be attributed to within-population genetic change.
Gastropods (snails and slugs) and isopods (pillbugs and sowbugs) each have a section but then are not mentioned again.
Host-parasite interaction between the piranha Pygocentrus nattereri (Characiformes: Characidae) and isopods and branchiurans (Crustacea) in the Rio Araguaia basin, Brazil.
Many naturalists might be familiar with the pest species, but will probably also know the lovely diurnal Ellipsidion--such as that in the image which graces the book's cover--and blaberids such as the giant burrowing cockroach (Macropanesthia rhinoceros), wood cockroaches (Panesthiinae) encountered in rotting logs, and trilobite cockroaches (Laxta species) often abundant under bark of eucalypts and superficially resembling isopods (slaters).
Isopods were fed with blue mussel Mytilus edulis trossulus and flesh of the European flounder Platichthys flesus.
Parasitism of Scomberomus brasiliensis Collette, Russo and Zavala-Camin (1978) by isopods showed a preference for immature and maturing individuals regardless of the sex, without influence on body condition of hosts (Lima et al., 2005).
