lkittle: I just read through most of your thread written the last couple years concerning your experiments using Paley's method wrten about in the Burrow.
Your reasons for doing it basically are the same ones I had for doing the research. It would nice to be able to maintain a large number of small worms in a small space and then take a measured amount of worms and grow them to full size when needed.
I got kinda lost reading through all of it. Mainly with all the 'experts' criticism of the experiment.
Can you give me a quick synopsis of your results? Mainly I would like to know a couple things:
1. If worms are overcrowded in a smaller, but otherwise normal environment will they be smaller? By that i mean if they hatch into that overloaded bin.
2.Will they regain their full size even if they have hit a mature age?
