Caption: Springtail, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This arthropod is well-adapted to cold conditions, and dies if the temperature exceeds 12 degrees Celsius. The ideal temperatures is between minus 4 and plus 5 degrees Celsius. Adaptations include sheltering in rock cavities, and synthesising a form of antifreeze to prevent the formation of ice crystals in their cells. The head and upper part of its body is shown here. This specimen was obtained from cold conditions.
