Vast forest areas in eastern Japan have been contaminated with radio-isotopes by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) accident. Radiocesium (radioCs) is known to remain bioavailable in… Expand
Effects of acute gamma irradiation on soil invertebrates in laboratory tests
An understanding of the dose-effect relationships of ionising radiation for nonhuman biota establishes important baselines for the radiological protection of ecosystems. We used standard laboratory… Expand
Ionizing radiation effects on soil biota: Application of lessons learned from Chernobyl accident for radioecological monitoring
Abstract Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and some other neighboring countries bear the heritage of several Soviet era nuclear disasters and the resulting severe radioactive pollution of vast… Expand
A quantitative protocol for DNA metabarcoding of springtails (Collembola).
We developed a novel protocol with superior quantitative analysis results for DNA metabarcoding of Collembola, a major soil microarthropod order. Degenerate PCR primers were designed for conserved… Expand
Biomarker responses reveal that food quality affects cadmium exposure in the soil collembolan Folsomia candida.
Food quality affects the food consumption rate, flux through the gut, and exposure to contaminants in animals. This study evaluated the effects of food quality on cadmium exposure in the soil… Expand
Defensive role of cystidia against Collembola in the basidiomycetes Russula bella and Strobilurus ohshimae.
Cystidia in fruit bodies are taxonomically important characters. However, little is known about their ecological functions. The defensive role of cystidia against the collembolans Ceratophysella… Expand
Erratum to “Study on tobacco components involved in the pyrolytic generation of selected smoke constituents” [Food and Chemical Toxicology 43 (2005) 559–568]
A rapid method of non-destructive DNA extraction from individual springtails (Collembola)
In this study, we describe an easy and rapid method for non-destructive DNA extraction from a single Collembola individual, without dissection, lysis of the specimen, or purification of extracted… Expand
