Woodlouse leg, SEM Featured Isopoda Print

Woodlouse leg, SEM

Woodlouse leg. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface structure of the leg of a woodlouse. A woodlouse has a pair of legs on each segment of its body. Some of these legs consists of gills that are used to breathe. This is one of the hind legs. The exoskeleton of a woodlice, like all arthropods, is formed mainly from a substance called chitin. This exoskeleton covers its body and legs. Woodlice (order Isopoda) are terrestrial crustaceans that require damp conditions in order to breathe properly. They feed on dead wood and plants, performing a vital role in the decay cycle. Magnification: x215 when printed 10cm wide
