Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Within the context of Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes, the European commission decided that most invertebrates, including A. vulgare (Crustacean Isopoda), are excluded from ethical statements. However, we took numerous precautions during our study. Animals used did not come from the field but were reared in our lab. All individuals used for the study were reared in groups and were provided with food ad libitum. The behavioral experiments were not stressful or invasive. After the behavioral experiments, the animals were reared in large boxes in groups.
