Diaz has developed investigations about slugs, snails, and isopods
This is the only site in the wild where Socorro isopods
can be found.
were listed, but not used as part of the aquatic community metrics as they are not part of the aquatic community proper.
Herbivores such as amphipods and isopods
are negatively affected due to characteristics of their escape behaviour and hydrophobic properties of their body (Notini, 1978; Bonsdorff & Nelson, 1981; Bonsdorff, 1983; Elmgren et al.
For example, of the 674 species of isopods
picked up by the team, 585 were new to science.
decipiens infections are acquired through consumption of various benthic invertebrates, including mysids, isopods
, amphipods, decapods, and polychaetes (McClelland, 2002) The acanthocephalan E.
Full of protein, the isopods
are the cleaner wrasse's main meal.
Recent examples include Rhabdochlamydia porcellionis, isolated from terrestrial isopods
, which is related to but not entirely within the family Simkaniaceae (28), and 2 insect-associated chlamydia, Fritschea bemesia and F.
In an accompanying column, Senior Editor Sharon Begley writes that the disappearance of creatures such as the 238 species of spiders, clams, moths, snails, isopods
and other invertebrates on the list of endangered species would undoubtedly leave less of a void in our collective heart than the polar bear's but would rip a bigger hole in the web of life.

Examples of specific topics include the influence of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on agonistic behavior in freshwater crayfish, chemical communication and social behavior of the lobster Homarus americanus, ecology and evolution of mating behavior in freshwater amphipods, mating strategies in isopods
, sperm demand and allocation in decapod crustaceans, hermaphroditism in caridean shrimps, social behavior of parent-offspring groups in crustaceans, sociobiology of terrestrial isopods
, the social breeding system of the Jamaican bromeliad crab, ecology and evolution of eusociality in sponge-dwelling shrimp, and anthropogenic stressors and their effects on the behavior of aquatic crustaceans.
