Collembola

Morphospecies 1 ( Isabel Sloop)

Location of collection: GGC Site 2 = (Lat: 38° 58'58.43N Long: 84° 00'21.33W)

Date of collection: March 2016

Shannon-Wiener Index of Biodiversity: H'= 2.83

Photo:Collembola1-1.jpg

Order: Collembola (springtails)

Distinguishing morphological features of Order:

- Wings absent, elongated body, short antennae, yellow coloration

Life cycle:

- Collembola reproduce sexual through the exchange of spermatophores from an adult male to a female. From hatching to maturity it only takes about 3 to 5 weeks.

Sexual dimorphism:

- Very rare in Collembola

What it eats:

- They feed on decaying plant matter in the leaf litter, along with minerals and bacteria.

Habitat:

- Found in leaf litter, and among other decaying material.

Ecological Importance:

- It feeds on either decaying or fresh plant/vegetable matter. This is important because when they feed on decaying plant matter, they are helping recycle things such as fallen leaves. Also, when they feed off of fresh plant matter, they help cut down or maintain vegetation size.

Order: Collembola (springtails)

Distinguishing morphological features of Order:

- Wings absent, small body, long antennae, mixture of yellow and black coloration with several black parts

Life cycle:

- Collembola undergo sexual reproduction from spermatophores exchange between adult males & females. Hatching to maturity takes approximately 3 to 5 weeks.

Sexual dimorphism:

- Very rare

What it eats:

- Decaying plant matter, minerals & Bacteria

Habitat:

- Found in leaf litter, and other decaying material.

Ecological Importance:

- It feeds on decaying or fresh plant/vegetable matter which helps nutrient recycling and decomposition of large organic material such leaf litter. In addition, when feeding off of fresh plant matter, they help cut down or maintain vegetation size.
