Description d'une technique employée pour la mesure simultanée de la température et du poids du corps chez les Isopodes. Deux espèces, Porcellio scaber Latreille, et Buddelundia albinogrisescens Wahrberg, sont comparées. Les deux Isopodes diffèrent par les courbes de température du corps et de perte de poids: P. scaber perd plus d'eau que B. albinogrisescens et sa température monte plus rapidement. La relation entre la température du corps et la perte de poids est plus claire chez P. scaber que chez B. albinogrisescens. Il semble donc que la perte d'eau par évaporation joue un rôle plus significatif dans la régulation de la température du corps chez les Isopodes mésophiles que chez ceux vivant dans les régions arides.
