Abstract

1. Temperature has an important effect on all physiological processes in animals that rely on external sources of heat (ectotherms). In an attempt to elucidate the interaction between temperature and the response of ectotherms to heavy metals, a study was made of growth (increase of body mass) of the isopod Porcellio scaber under four constant temperature regimes (12, 16, 20, 24 °C), and four different exposures to cadmium (0.016, 0.071, 0.14 and 0.31 μmol g
