Low-cost wind tunnel for micro-arthropods

Low-cost wind tunnel for micro-arthropods content piece image
Here we describe a construction of wind tunnel suitable for close-up observation of micro-arthropods behavior under various conditions. The tunnel was made of glass with inner dimensions 6x6x110 centimeters. Both the inlet and outlet compartments were equipped with an electric fan, series of plastic diffusers and a metal mesh to minimize wind turbulence inside a 40 centimeters-long observation chamber in the middle of the tunnel.
