However, extraction can be successful only if ecological research in the past decades (Tiunov, microarthropods remain alive and active. Therefore, 2007). Stable isotopes undergo so-called fractionation drying or freezing of the substrate is not allowed; on in living organisms, with their ratio changing in the the contrary, it is necessary to maintain moisture and course of metabolic processes.
