This symposium is the first in ten years to survey terrestrial isopods, a group which includes thousands of species of woodlice existing throughout the temperate and tropical regions. Providing a wide range of views, the contributors consider the physiology, classification, and ecology of isopods, including such topics as the neuroendocrinology of growth and moulting, feeding behavior, breeding and population biology, and ecophysiological adaptations. Woodlice are the most successful group of terrestrial crustaceans, and their promise as tools for research emerges as a theme of this volume, which is a mine of ideas for classroom projects, as well as a valuable resource for serious researchers in zoology, physiology, and biology.
