Geographic variation in cold tolerance and associated physiological adaptations were investigated in the freeze tolerant enchytraeid Enchytraeus albidus (Oligochaeta). Specimens from Svalbard, Greenland (Nuuk), Iceland (Hólar and Mossfellsbær) and continental Europe [Norway (Bergen), Sweden (Kullen) and Germany] were reared in the laboratory in a common-garden experiment. The aim was to test for variations in minimum lethal temperature, freeze duration tolerance, carbohydrate reserves and… CONTINUE READING
