1978: Water economy of the earthworm Lumbricus
terrestris L.: coping with the terrestrial environment.
The collected Lumbricus
rubellus earthworms were washed with running water to remove the mucus on its surface.
This study endeavors to increase knowledge of chronic toxic effects of Roundup PRO[R] on Lumbricus
terrestris in a microcosm setting.

* Leaf worms (Lumbricus
rubellus) live in the top leaf layer and the first few inches into the soil.
This finding is comparable to the work of Hobbelen, Koolhaas and Van Gastel (2006) who also identified different earthworms species (Lumbricus
rubellus and Apporectodea caliginosa) from an industrial field soil.
rubellus (commonly known as Red worm or Blood worm)
Organisms commonly used for assays with sediments are Chironomus sp., Hyalella azteca, and Lumbricus
