SummarySampling experiments show that some terrestrial arthropod species which predominate on the flood plains of Eder Reservoir (Germany) survive long-term inundations in the egg stage under water, hatching immediately after the floods: the Collembola Isotoma viridis, Anurida tullbergi, Sminthurides malmgreni, Sminthurinus aureus, and Sminthurus nigromaculatus; the land mites Cheylostigmaeus pannonicus and Zerconopsis müstairi; and the ephydrid fly Scatella stagnalis. Some other dominant…

SummaryIncubation experiments with eggs of a population of Isotoma viridis, which is exposed to annual long-term flooding from about April to July, as well as field observations show that temperature
Increase in egg resistance to desiccation in springtails correlates with blastodermal cuticle formation: Eco-evolutionary implications for insect terrestrialization.
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between blastodermal cuticle formation and egg resistance to desiccation in the springtails Orchesella cincta and Folsomia candida suggests that the formation of this cuticle protects the eggs, constituting an ancestral trait among hexapods that predated and facilitated the process of terrestrialization that occurred during insect evolution.
Effects of the summer flood 1997 on the collembolan and gamasid fauna in a Lower Oder Valley floodplain
A study from 1994 to 1996 showed that the populations of Collembola and gamasid mites in the Lower Oder Valley are well adapted to inundation that occur regularly during winter and spring. In 1997 an
Blastodermal cuticle formation contributes to desiccation resistance in springtail eggs: eco-evolutionary implications for insect terrestrialization
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between blastodermal cuticle formation and egg resistance to desiccation in the springtails Orchesella cincta and Folsomia candida suggests that the formation of this protective cuticle is an ancestral trait among hexapods, predating and facilitating the process of terrestrialization that occurred during insect evolution.
Survival of ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) submerged during floods: Field and laboratory studies
TLDR
Ground beetles trapped on the surface of water survived more than two weeks and removal of both of the elytra of adult of C. granulatus resulted in them surviving immersion for a shorter period, which indicates that air stored in the sub-elytral cavity is used to prolong the period they can survive immersion.
Microhabitat selection in the simple oribatid community dwelling in epilithic moss cover (Acari: Oribatida)

The moss cover of a roof was studied as the model of a simple habitat divided into microhabitats by the members of a community of saprophagous mites. This community consisted of two species of
Adaptations and Predispositions of Different Middle European Arthropod Taxa (Collembola, Araneae, Chilopoda, Diplopoda) to Flooding and Drought Conditions
TLDR
The adaptations and predispositions of springtails, web spiders, millipedes and centipedes to the changeable flood and drought conditions of Middle European floodplain forests and wetlands are summarized.
Terrestrial invertebrates inhabiting lowland river floodplains of Central Amazonia and Central Europe: a review
TLDR
Some terrestrial invertebrates show physiological resistance against inundation or drought, phenologies fitting the normal annual rhythm of water level fluctuation, high dispersal ability and migration, and most species survive simply using a `risk strategy', combining high reproduction rates, dispersal and reimmigration following catastrophic events.
Slow-moving soil organisms on a water highway: aquatic dispersal and survival potential of Oribatida and Collembola in running water
TLDR
This is the first study to demonstrate successful passive dispersal with running water for two groups of terrestrial soil microarthropods, including subsequent colonisation of new soil.
Global diversity of springtails (Collembola; Hexapoda) in freshwater
TLDR
Water-dependency appeared independently in several clades of the class Collembola, which is basically of terrestrial origin according to recent phylogenetic analyses, and a general biogeographical pattern is emerging from available data.
