Species richness in local communities has been considered an important factor determining the success of invasion by exotic species (the biotic resistance hypothesis). However, the detailed mechanisms, especially the role of predator communities, are not well understood. We studied biotic resistance to an invasive freshwater snail, Pomacea canaliculata, at(More)
— In this paper we describe novel magnetically driven polymeric microtool for non-intrusive and no contamination experiments on a chip. The composite is formed by suspending magnetite particles (Fe 3 O 4) in polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). In order to obtain precise and complicated pattern of micromagnetic tools, a photolithography techniques has been applied(More)
