...JONATHAN C. WRIGHT; MICHAEL J. O'DONNELL Active water vapour absorption in Porcellio scaber is associated with the endogenous production of strongly hyperosmotic fluid in the pleoventral chamber (pleoventralraum; PV). Pre-desiccated animals show increased pleon fluid secretion within 1–2 min...

...JONATHAN C. WRIGHT; JOHN MACHIN Continuous and intermittent gravimetric measurements have identified active water vapour absorption (WVA) in three species of terrestrial Isopoda. Water activity thresholds for uptake lie in the range 0.92-0.95. Above the threshold, WVA shows non-saturated kinetics...
