Temporal and spatial metabolic rate variation in the Antarctic springtail Gomphiocephalus hodgsoni

McGaughran, Angela; Convey, Peter; Redding, G.P.; Stevens, Mark I.


Spatial and temporal environmental variation in terrestrial Antarctic ecosystems are known to impact species strongly at a local scale, but the ways in which organisms respond (e.g. physiologically, behaviourally) to such variation are poorly understood. Further, very few studies have attempted to assess inter-annual variability of such responses. Building on previous work demonstrating intra-seasonal variation in standard metabolic rate in the springtail Gomphiocephalushodgsoni, we...[Show more]
