Caption: Arctic springtails. Coloured scanning electron micrographs (SEMs) of two Arctic springtails (Onychiurus arcticus). This arthropod is well-adapted to cold conditions and survives low winter temperatures by losing water. The top pane shows the springtail in its normal, active state, the lower one has been kept at -12°C and become highly desiccated - it will recover in about 5 hours if warmed and given access to water.
