A Smithsonian researcher led a team that discovered 18 new species of spiders in Madagascar that looked like pelicans. The spider is formally known as Archaeids which has an extended, arching carapace and two extra-long mouthparts, the chelicerate, which creates an illusion of a neck and a beak that gives the arachnid a pelican appearance. National Geographic described the spider as quiet as an owl, quick as a cobra, small as a grain of rice, and is more like a venomous pike when it strikes its prey. The Smithsonian noted that the purpose of the unusual appearance of the Archaeids is to make it prey hunting easier. The pelican spider eats only spiders, not other insects.
Capri Fig or Wild Fig - Capri figs are inedible because they harbor blastophaga insects. They produce short-styled pistillate flowers (gall flowers), adopted for oviposition by the blastophaga, the functional male flowers located at the ostiole end with abundant pollen. When the insect emerges through the ostiole of the syconium, after the oviposition in gall flowers, it carries several pollen grains from staminate flowers located near the ostiole. In the group (Capri fig), there are subgroups: Profichi, Mammoni, and Mamme. Profichi is the best pollinizer.
The isopods have three distinct regions such as the head, thorax and abdomen (CISEO). Their characteristic as for what they look like is their claws attached to their abdomen. Also, they have a pair of antennae, simply small eyes and seven pairs of appendages connected to their segmented thoracic region. They are differed by their stomach for a female that has a broad pouch, which stores fertilized eggs until
In India it is commonly found in the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, West Bengal and Pondicherry. India harbours 99 species of scorpions but only two species, Mesobuthus tamulus (the common red scorpion) and Palamnieus swammerdani (Black scorpion) are poisonous. The severity of scorpion envenomation varies with the scorpion’s species, age, and size, and is much greater in children owing to their lesser body surface area. Scorpions live in warm, dry regions. They inhabit commonly the crevices of dwellings, underground burrows, under logs or debris, paddy husk, sugarcane fields, coconut and banana plantations.
Nowadays, most of the optimization algorithms are based on the natural behavior of the swarms of insects like flock of birds, ants, bees, etc. This concept is known as Swarm Intelligence (SI) as it represents the behavior of swarms of insects. This is because the classical optimization
The baby bird will be glued onto the back of the bottom half of the light blue egg. Once the bird is attached to the egg, they will take the clothes pin and lay it on the side in order to attach the top and bottom of the egg to the egg portion of the pin. The top of the egg will be glued to the side of the top half of the pin, and the bottom of the egg with the bird will be glued to the side of the bottom half of the pin. When the clothes pin is closed the egg should look like it is whole, but when the clothes pin is opened it should look like the baby bird has
ZY2005 Invertebrate Diversity Essay Carausius morosus Carausius morosus is more commonly known as the Indian Stick Insect. The Indian Stick Insect is a member of the class Insecta and Subclass Pterygota. Insects are the only members of the Arthropods (Phylum Arthropoda) that have wings. They are also recognisable by the presence of three separate pairs of legs. There are more than 900,000 different known species of insects on the planet, with many more yet to be discovered.
In this research paper I’ll be talking about the diet of a Venus Flytrap, what it can and can’t eat, and how it takes nutrients from things they eat. But first i feel like i need to explain what a Venus Flytrap is. The Venus Flytrap was discovered 1875 by Charles Dawson on , "Insectivorous Plants," that the Venus flytrap is "one of the most wonderful [plants] in the world." There's no doubt that this opinion was formed after watching the jaws of this plant snap around an insect,capturing it for a meal. The Venus fly traps is a small plant.
It is a strange thing thoughts originally come like little butterflies gently wafting into our beings, and we in innocence can easily pick them up. They can lay eggs that become like greedy caterpillars devouring the goodness in our world. They can then become beliefs and habits. The process takes time and repetition and very soon they are like old friends, familiar and welcomed. Beware!
Movincool Classic Plus 26, USA). Pupae collection and Irradiation: Eggs were collected and washed with distilled water and sieved with a very fine screen and then measured volumetrically. Larvae of oriental fruit fly were reared in the laboratory using artificial standard larval diet and kept in larger bowls contained 1.5 to 4 cm thick sawdust used for pupation. Sawdust was sieved and collected pupae were transferred into Petri dishes and irradiated by exposing them to gamma radiation from a radioactive Cobalt-60 source. To optimize the radiation dose of sterilization several batches of 5 and 6-day-old pupae were irradiated at 30, 40, 50 and 60 Gy
