Abstract [en]

Tardigrades are microscopic aquatic invertebrates that are known for their ability to survive extreme conditions. Different species of tardigrades tolerate extreme conditions to a varying degree. It has been suggested that limnic tardigrades would have a lower tolerance to desiccation compared to limno-terrestrial tardigrades. In this study limno-terrestrial species Ramazzottius oberhaeuseri and the limnic species Hypsibius dujardini is compared in regard to their tolerance to desiccation and freezing. The results show that there indeed is a difference in the tolerance and that Ramazzottius oberhaeuseri show better tolerance.
