With over 1 million living species described and a rich 520 Myr fossil record, arthropods are the most species-rich clade of animals on Earth, accounting for nearly 80 per cent of animal biodiversity [1]. Four main euarthropod sub-phyla are recognized: Hexapoda (including insects); Crustacea (lobsters, water fleas and others); Myriapoda (e.g. millipedes and centipedes); and Chelicerata (including arachnids, horseshoe crabs and possibly sea spiders). After many years of debate, a consensus has emerged that these four classes (or sub-phyla) form a monophyletic group called the Euarthropoda [2,3]. The relationships between the four euarthropod groups remain disputed, however, as is the validity of their close relationship to tardigrades (water bears) and onychophorans (velvet worms) in a more inclusive clade called Arthropoda (named Panarthropoda by Nielsen [4]).. Within the Euarthropoda, the main point of disagreement concerns the position of the myriapods, which were long thought to be most ...
Yellow-spotted Millipede. The yellow-spotted millipede is a species of arthropod in the Myriapoda, the "many-legged ones" a group that also includes centipedes. Myriapods possess from fewer than 10 to nearly 200 pairs of appendages ("legs"). They often occur in moist climates like that of the Pacific. Northwest; they may be found in damp places under stones and logs, in leaf litter, or soil. Millipedes play an important ecological role in converting forest floor litter into fertile topsoil.. At certain times of the year forested trails within RNSP are literally crawling with yellow-spotted millipedes and their nymphs, which hatch small and white and take approximately two years and several molts of their exoskeleton to reach maturity. Millipedes belong to the arthropod class Diplopoda, which means "double legs", they have two pairs of legs per body segment. Yellow-spotted millipedes have 18-20 body segments and 31 pairs of legs (not a thousand like the name "millipede" suggests). The cylindrical ...

Blobology analysis revealed 13 contigs with deviating GC content, which could be the result of contamination. The GC content in scaffold 160 was only 29.9%. Blast searches in the NCBI non-redundant database yielded no significant hits to non-metazoan sequences for this scaffold, suggesting that this scaffold is not a result of contamination. Instead, visual inspection revealed stretches of low base pair calling. (N stretches) along this scaffold, which resulted in a biased GC estimate. The remaining 12 scaffolds show GC contents of approximately 50%. Blast searches indicated that these scaffolds comprised long stretches of GC-rich repeat sequences without any indication for contamination.. The high quality of the genome assembly and the 28,734 gene models were supported by various lines of evidence. First, we identified 245 complete genes and one partial gene out of 248 (98.8%) core eukaryotic CEGMA predicted gene models, which is a good indicator of completeness of the assembled gene space. ...

The use of directional traps for the assessment of short-term phenanthrene effects upon soil springtail communities. : In: Environmental Pollution, 2006, 140 (2), pp.364-370. Directional traps, both horizontal and vertical, were used to assess the behavioural impact of phenanthrene application on soil springtail communities. Avoidance was not detected. Rather, a vertical attraction of the dominant species, Folsomia manolachei, was demonstrated, as well as a decrease in horizontal movements of Lepidocyrtus

Millipedes are the class Diplopoda, where most segments appear to have two pairs of legs. This happened because each pair of body segments fused (joined) into a single unit, which gives them the appearance of having two pairs of legs per segment. They are slower than centipedes, and feed on leaf litter and detritus. Around 8,000 species have been described, which may represent less than a tenth of the true global millipede diversity.[6] One species, Illacme plenipes has the greatest number of legs of any animal, with 750.[2] Millipedes typically have between 36 and 400 legs. Pill millipedes are much shorter, and are capable of rolling up into a ball, like pillbugs. ...
Millipedes are often mixed up with centipedes, but whereas centipedes have one pair of legs per body segment, millipedes have two. Moreover, millipedes curl up when disturbed; centipedes run away.
Siveter et al. [1] recently described a new putative megacheiran arthropod, Enalikter aphson, from the Silurian Herefordshire Lagerstätte and discussed its impact on arthropod phylogeny and the survival of megacheirans beyond the Cambrian Period.. In this comment, we should like to suggest an alternative interpretation of the new fossil. We think that the evidence for arthropod affinities of E. aphson is not compelling, and we argue that all features of this species are more compatible with an annelid affinity of E. aphson. Accordingly, the supposed impact of E. aphson on arthropod phylogeny and longevity of early megacheirans is questioned.. The body of E. aphson is composed of segments that bear appendages, some of which are interpreted as biramous or multiramous. The segments lack a well-delineated tergite on the dorsal side; as pointed out by Siveter et al. [1] tergo-pleurae are also not visible in the material. Siveter et al. [1] identify a dome-like tergite on the dorsal side of the ...
A Fascinating Creature. Petroglyph National Monument is unique in many ways, but one of its most striking attributes is the seventeen-mile long volcanic escarpment. In addition to having thousands of petroglyphs on the basalt boulders, the escarpment is home to many plants and animals that may not usually be found this far north in the Chihuahuan Desert. The boulders strewn across the escarpment allow moisture and heat to be concentrated. This gives plants and animals the slight edge they need to be able to survive. One such animal is the millipede. Millipedes are known to exist in many different habitats from rainforests to sub-alpine mountaintops to deserts. The millipedes that live in these diverse habitats have adapted in order to survive the elements. Some have developed mechanisms to keep from freezing, to keep from being eaten or to keep from drying out in the heat. In whatever habitat they occupy, millipedes are fascinating creatures that have a long history and are an important member ...
Janie & Geoff. Hiking the Burgess Shale: 500 Million Years Ago in the Canadian Rockies. Many people travel to the Canadian Rockies and end up in popular spots such as Banff, Jasper, and Lake Louise. The Rockies are so magnificently beautiful its hard to imagine that there could be even more awesome experiences there than gazing at those mountains and lakes. But if you make it to Lake Louise, Alberta, take the time to travel another 30 kilometers to a World Heritage site that is awesome in the original sense of the word. It is well worth the drive and an overnight stay to take the guided hike the next day to the Burgess Shale, located in Yoho National Park on the British Columbia side of the Rockies.. If youve ever been to natural science museums, most notably the Smithsonian, and seen fossils from the Cambrian Age (540 million years ago), chances are that they came from the Burgess Shale. Steven J. Goulds book Wonderful Life describes the discovery of the site and how it changed our notions ...

In the course of exploratory field studies on arthropods with defensive glands, we came across two species which emit a strong and persistent phenolic odor when handled. One is a carabid beetle (Chlaenius cordicollis Kirby), the other a chordeumoid millipede [Abacion magnum (Loomis)]. The fact that both animals produce repellent secretions is not surprising, since many other carabids and millipedes are well known for their defensive glands. But the particular phenolic odor possessed by these two species is unIike the odor of any other arthropod secretion that has been studied (for a summary of defensive secretions of arthropods see Roth and Eisner, 1962).The purpose of this paper is to report on the nature of the two phenols involved, and to discuss the structure and mode of operation of the glands, as well as their defensive effectiveness. Both species were collected in the environs of Ithaca, N. Y. Abacion was from leaf litter in deciduous woods, and Chlaenius from beneath rocks near a creek ...
Any way you look at it - by sheer weight, species diversity or population - the hard-shelled, joint-legged creepy crawlies called arthropods dominate planet Earth. Because of their success and importance, scientists have been trying for decades to figure out the family relationships that link lobsters to millipedes and cockroaches to tarantulas and find which might have come first.. In a scientific and technological tour de force that was nearly a decade in the making, a team of scientists from Duke University, the University of Maryland and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County have compared genetic sequences from 75 different species to draw a new family tree that includes every major arthropod lineage. Some of the relationships are so surprising that new names had to be coined for five newly-discovered groupings.. The work, which was supported by the National Science Foundation, appears early online Wednesday in the journal Nature.. A big surprise to tumble out of the new tree is ...
Nonnative plants alter the composition of native plant communities, with concomitant effects on arthropods. However, plant invasions may not be the only disturbance affecting native communities, and multiple disturbances can have compounding effects. We assessed the effects of invasion and drought on plant and arthropod communities by comparing grasslands dominated by nonnative Old World bluestem grasses (OWBs, Dichanthium annulatum) to grasslands dominated by native plants during a period of decreasing drought severity (2011â€"2013). Native plant communities had more species of plants and arthropods (/m2) than areas dominated by OWBs during extreme drought, but richness was comparable as drought severity decreased. Abundance of arthropods was greater in native plant communities than in OWB communities during extreme drought, but OWB communities had more arthropods during moderate and non-drought conditions. We observed a shift in the arthropod community from one dominated by detritivores to ...

Trek Aerospaces Springtail Exoskeleton Flying Vehicle is a single operator powered-lift vehicle that supports the operator/pilot in a standing position. There are a pair of ducts, approximately one meter in diameter, mounted on the upper end of the airframe above the operator. Each duct contains a fan consisting of five blades which produce thrust in the vertical direction. The fans are counter-rotating, eliminating the torque that is normally associated with a single rotor.. ...
We have been inundated with springtails (verified by our county vector control entomologist) for almost 3 months since getting 4 new sliding doors installed. Showers, essential oil baths, washing all linens and vacuuming mattresses and floors every day have kept them down. We have had terminex spray inside 4x and outside 3x, which helps temporarily. Our outdoor sprinklers were leaking and we ripped up and replaced the sprinklers and front yard - new topsoil and sod. They die from flea powder for the carpet, but come back within a week. We are having some plants with whiteflies torn out, and removing all mulch. Diatamaceous earth work pretty well, as it compromises their joints and dries them out. There is a company called Diatect that sells an organic product with food-grade D.E. and natural pyrethrens from african daisies. It is safe for people and pets, you can even eat it, though I wouldnt recommend it. It is used commercially for grain storage and organic crops. I have a hand pump sprayer ...

Dont worry if you notice occasional centipedes and millipedes in your home. In fact, centipedes may help control populations of other pests, such as flies and cockroaches. If you have a lot of centipedes or millipedes, however, decrease the humidity inside the home and remove moist, decaying matter from outside the home. Sealing cracks in the foundation and using screens in doors and windows may also help keep centipedes and millipedes out of your home. Use chemical pesticides as a last resort.. ...
Ecosystem engineering is a process by which organisms change the distribution of resources and create new habitats for other species via non-trophic interactions. Leaf-rolling caterpillars can act as ecosystem engineers because they provide shelter to secondary users. In this study, we report the influence of leaf-rolling caterpillars on speciose tropical arthropod communities along both spatial scales (leaf-level and plant-level effects) and temporal scales (dry and rainy seasons). We predict that rolled leaves can amplify arthropod diversity at both the leaf and plant levels and that this effect is stronger in dry seasons, when arthropods are prone to desiccation. Our results show that the abundance, richness, and biomass of arthropods within several guilds increased up to 22-fold in naturally and artificially created leaf shelters relative to unaltered leaves. These effects were observed at similar magnitudes at both the leaf and plant scales. Variation in the shelter architecture (funnel, ...
The first antennae of arthropods are divisible into two main types, viz. (1) segmented antennae and (2) annulated antennae. In the first type the antenna consists of a variable number of segments, each having intrinsic musculature. The antennae of the Ohilopoda, Diplopoda, Pauropoda, Symphyla, Collembola, and Thysanura Entognatha all pertain to this type; also, the first antennae of many Copepoda and Ostracoda.. In the second type the antenna consists of a peduncle or protopodite composed of one or more segments, each with intrinsic musculature. Distally it bears an annulated flagellum, or a pair of flagella, devoid of intrinsic muscles and whose movements are effected by muscles originating within the peduncle. The first antennae of the Crustacea Malacostraca and the antennae of the Thysanura Ectognatha and of all the Insecta Pterygota belong to this type.. The greatly elongated antennae of the Schizotarsia are intermediate between these two types. They are composed of an immense number of ...

In this study, we examined 31 samples of varying chemical composition, including samples of soils from gasworks, coke production sites, and sites where wood preservatives were heavily used; ash and soot from municipal solid waste incinerators; antiskid sand; and dust from areas with heavy road traffic. The samples were comprehensively chemically characterized, especially their polycyclic aromatic compound contents, using gas chromatography-time-of-flight mass spectrometry, whereas their biological effects were assessed using dehydrogenase activity, root growth (Hordeum vulgare), reproduction of springtails (Folsomia candida), algal growth (Desmodesmus subspicatus), germinability (Sinapis alba), Vibrio fischeri, DR-CALUX, and Ames Salmonella assays. The number of compounds detected in the samples ranged from 123 to 527. Using the multivariate regression technique of partial-least-squares projections to latent structures, it was possible to find individual compounds that exhibited strong ...

Predatory insects and spiders are key elements of integrated pest management (IPM) programmes in agricultural crops such as cotton. Management decisions in IPM programmes should to be based on a reliable and efficient method for counting both predators and pests. Knowledge of the temporal constraints that influence sampling is required because arthropod abundance estimates are likely to vary over a growing season and within a day. Few studies have adequately quantified this effect using the beat sheet, a potentially important sampling method. We compared the commonly used methods of suction and visual sampling to the beat sheet, with reference to an absolute cage clamp method for determining the abundance of various arthropod taxa over 5 weeks. There were significantly more entomophagous arthropods recorded using the beat sheet and cage clamp methods than by using suction or visual sampling, and these differences were more pronounced as the plants grew. In a second trial, relative estimates of ...

The Chelicerata originated as marine animals in the Middle Cambrian period; the first confirmed chelicerate fossils, belonging to Sanctacaris, date from 508 million years ago.[2] The surviving marine species include the four species of xiphosurans (horseshoe crabs), and possibly the 1,300 species of pycnogonids (sea spiders), if the latter are indeed chelicerates. On the other hand, there are over 77,000 well-identified species of air-breathing chelicerates, and there may be about 500,000 unidentified species. Like all arthropods, chelicerates have segmented bodies with jointed limbs, all covered in a cuticle made of chitin and proteins. The chelicerate bauplan consists of two tagmata, the prosoma and the opisthosoma, except that mites have lost a visible division between these sections. The chelicerae, which give the group its name, are the only appendages that appear before the mouth. In most sub-groups, they are modest pincers used to feed. However, spiders chelicerae form fangs that most ...
A few arthropods, such as barnacles, are hermaphroditic, that is, each can have the organs of both sexes. However, individuals of most species remain of one sex all their lives.[31] A few species of insects and crustaceans can reproduce by parthenogenesis, for example, without mating, especially if conditions favor a "population explosion". However most arthropods rely on sexual reproduction, and parthenogenetic species often revert to sexual reproduction when conditions become less favorable.[32] Aquatic arthropods may breed by external fertilization, as for example frogs also do, or by internal fertilization, where the ova remain in the females body and the sperm must somehow be inserted. All known terrestrial arthropods use internal fertilization, as unprotected sperm and ova would not survive long in these environments. In a few cases the sperm transfer is direct from the males penis to the females oviduct, but it is more often indirect. Some crustaceans and spiders use modified ...

The study was carried out along two sandy beaches of different geographical areas each under the influence of a nearby river. The Mediterranean site, characterised by microtidal conditions and located on the Tyrrhenian coast of Central Italy, was undergoing a phenomenon of instability. The Atlantic site was located in Morocco and was a relatively more stable environment with mesotidal conditions. The aim of the research was to focus on the interactions between the geomorphological changes of the sandy beaches and the community structure of terrestrial macro-invertebrates under riverine influence. In each locality five stations were chosen at increasing distances from the river mouth in two different seasons. In each station two transects with pitfall traps were set to capture terrestrial macro-invertebrates. Species richness, abundance, α- and β-diversity were analysed along with longshore zonation patterns. Regression analysis between sand parameters, beach characteristics, arthropod species, ...
The most often asked about pest this past week has been the millipede. As a matter of fact, most callers have been almost beside themselves due to large numbers invading homes. Millipedes are hard shelled animals that are worm-like with many segments. They also curl up when disturbed. Most body segments have 2 pair of legs, except for the 3 behind the head. Adults are 1-2 inches long and can be brown, tan, or gray.. Most millipedes are scavengers. They feed on decaying organic matter such as leaves, compost, and grass clippings. They may sometimes injure small, young plants by feeding on the roots and tender plant parts, but this is rather rare.. When they enter the home in large numbers, they can become quite a nuisance. They do not bite, feed on clothing, or cause any real damage. They are simply a nuisance. Control of millipedes in the house is best accomplished by running the vacuum cleaner.. Most insecticides are not very effective against millipedes. The best way to prevent them from ...

The test substance is characterized by a high log Koc (log Koc , 5) indicating a considerable potential for adsorption to soil particles. Therefore, tests with soil-dwelling organisms that feed on soil particles are most relevant for the evaluation of soil toxicity of the test substance. In addition, in the absence of a clear indication of selective toxicity, an invertebrate (earthworm or collembolan) test is preferred, as outlined in ECHA guidance Section R.7.11.5.3 (ECHA, 2012). A testing proposal for a long-term earthworm study (OECD 222) with the structural analogue Fatty acids, C18-unsatd., dimers (CAS No. 61788-89-4) is currently under ...
Today I shared a website with my kids on arthropods. Warning: it takes evolution as fact clear back to the idea that all things came from one or two animals, but it also has a great illustration of what makes an arthropod an arthropod. The two parts are separate so you dont have to go to the evolutionary part. The link I gave starts at the "What is an arthropod?" section. The evolution part precedes it. I believe in a creator, and I believe he guided the process very carefully but since he hasnt filled in the details himself, Im not going say he couldnt have used evolution when it was appropriate. However, the idea that everything came from one or two animals is ludicrous in my opinion. Especially given the command he gave to the animals to multiply and replenish the earth after their own kind. Cross two dogs of different breeds and you get a . . . dog. Not something else. If you cross a lab with a collie, you will get . . . a mutt. Cross enough mutts, and another breed of dog will emerge. ...
