Dear Colleagues!

Currently I am working on my diploma thesis, which is dealing with copper
accumulation in Lumbricus rubellus. Unfortunately I did not manage to
establish a viable in-vitro breeding population of this species and it is
absolutely impossible to catch this species in the open field during
wintertime. Therefore I am desperately seeking for any information about
who could possibly supply a sufficient amount of specimens of this
species (approximately a 100 per month). So I'd like to ask you if anybody
knows an adress of a vermiculturist (worldwide!) who is able to sell such
worms. Note: it is absolutely necessary that it is exactly the species
mentioned above, Lumbricus rubellus Sauvigny, 1823, because the whole
experimental set is focusing on this taxon. 

I truely do hope that anyone of you is able (and willing) to help me,
because this whole thing is starting to really bug me. So untill our next
contact I stay yours with my best wishes,
