1. Comparative studies have been made on seven woodlice and the millipede Glomeris to determine: (i) the site of water loss, (ii) the effect of temperature and humidity on the rate of evaporation of water, (iii) the effect of humidity on their upper temperature tolerance, and (iv) their capacity to regain water after desiccation. 2. An apparatus was constructed in which several animals can be exposed simultaneously but separately to a slowly moving stream of air of any required humidity and… Expand
