What leaf do you think a hungry Isopod will prefer?
We asked that question and then watched over 100 isopods to determine the answer. We placed isopods in a container for three days without "food." Then , we placed 1 inch square portions of four leaves: oak, maple, apple, dogwood. Then we measured and graphed the amounts eaten and compared the differeences. We found that Isopods prefer dogwood the most and oak the least.
