... Osmoregulation Excretion Water absorption Scanning ion-selective electrode technique Springtails (Collembola) are a basal lineage of Hexapoda, which is a group of terrestrial arthropods that also includes the insects ( Hopkin, 1997 ; Misof et al., 2014 ). Compared to the insects, springtails lack...
