Slaters have primitive lung-like structures in two of their pleopods and a lower humidity gradient. Therefore, loose water vapor at a much reduced rate. They require a high moisture level in their environment.

Does moisture stress and drought mean the same?
No. Moisture stress can be a result of drought. Moisture stress results when the level of water in the plant cell reduces to less than normal levels. This happens when there is an environment deficient of water (like a drought condition) ...
What non living factors affect cactus growth?
One non living factor that affects cactus growth is slow draining soil. A cactus plant prefers free draining soil that holds some moisture. It doesn't tolerate waterlogging. Another non living factor is the level of heat, light, and moisture. A cactus plant likes high heat in the desert and jungle, high light and low moisture in the desert, and low light and high moisture in the jungle. ...

How do rainforests maintain such a high level of moisture?
The zone where they are located contributes to the amount of rain that falls there and also to the high level of moisture. ...
Asked in Meteorology and Weather
What causes the air to be humid?
Moisture, the higher level of moisture in the air, the higher level of humidity it is. That's why when you walk into a green house it's hot and humid, the higher level of moisture in the air can sometimes make it difficult to breathe, ie. in a steam room. ...
Asked in Ecosystems

Biotic is the level of living but no living things.
Asked in Science, Animal Life
Most living things share certain characteristics why are they?
Characteristics of living things are: -organized cell:DNA -adapt and evolve -grow and develop: mitosis -reproduce: meiosis -homeostasis: balance -metabolism: energy -adjust to environment: stimulus and response The reason living things are these characteristics is so that they can maintain homeostasis (balance in the cell level and organismal level). ...

What is the advantage of studying the environment at the ecosystem level?
An advantage of studying the environment at the ecosystem level is knowing all of the phenomenon that occur in the biosphere. It can also tell how the environment affect humans. ...
Asked in Science, The Difference Between
Why you are doing initial moisture content critical moisture content and equilibrium moisture content test?
if we know initial moisture content of the object we can identify how much drying energy required for dry the same moist material. if it is a food material we have to reduce the moisture content upto certain level, otherwise it may be destroyed. if we know the initial moisture content of same food object, we can reduce its moisture content upto 10% of its initial moisture content. ...
Asked in Health
Why do people living at high altitudes have more red blood cells than people living at sea level?
It is the bodies way of adapting to lower amounts of oxygen in the environment. Red blood cells allow the body to function with less oxygen. ...
