I am currently working on my MSc project on personality in isopods, and more specifically, woodlice. However, to test for personality you need to be able to tell all the individuals apart, and this has proven to be a lot easier said than done. I am in the middle of testing different marking methods as some methods have been shown to decrease the woodlice’s activity levels. Fingers crossed that at least one of them is successful!"
