  • The collembolan Folsomia fimetaria was exposed to a range of elevated copper (Cu) concentrations in a LUFA-Speyer soil for 7, 14, and 21 d, in a microcosm test. [...] Key Result The results showed that F. fimetaria was sensitive to copper, with reproduction being a more sensitive parameter of effect than either growth (measured as final body size) or survivorship.Expand Abstract
