Freshwater Invertebrate Life History Strategies for Surviving Desiccation

  title={Freshwater Invertebrate Life History Strategies for Surviving Desiccation},
  author={Scott Strachan and Edwin T. Chester and Belinda J. Robson},
  journal={Springer Science Reviews},
In many regions, climate change is prolonging dry periods in rivers and wetlands, exposing freshwater invertebrates to increased periods of desiccation. Invertebrates show a range of strategies for surviving desiccation, but the effects of the degree of exposure to desiccation on the expression of particular traits is unknown. This review synthesizes existing information on the desiccation responses of freshwater invertebrates to examine the flexibility of these survival strategies and the… CONTINUE READING
