• spiny
  • The second antennae may be significantly reduced (e.g. remipedes), apparently absent (e.g. barnacles), or modified to such an extent that they no longer resemble antennae (e.g. spiny lobsters and slipper lobsters). (wikipedia.org)
  • prey
  • Workers are strictly nocturnal (active mainly at night) and are solitary foragers, collecting arthropod prey and sweet substances such as honeydew from scale insects and other Hemiptera. (wikipedia.org)
  • larvae
  • Longicorn beetles are sometimes called long-horned beetles, nicknamed for their very long antennae, or timber beetles, because the larvae tunnel into wood). (amnh.org)
  • analyses
  • The group is generally regarded as monophyletic, and many analyses support the placement of arthropods with cycloneuralians (or their constituent clades) in a superphylum Ecdysozoa. (wikipedia.org)
  • legs
  • The hairs on the body are yellow, erect and long and abundant, but on the antennae and legs they are shorter and suberect (standing almost in an erect position). (wikipedia.org)
  • Periplaneta
  • We determined the open-loop dynamics of a tactile sensor, specifically the antenna of the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana , an animal that escapes predators by using its antennae during rapid closed-loop tactilely mediated course control. (biologists.org)
  • groups
  • Her research is extremely complex, requiring knowledge of arthropods and plants and the interaction between the two groups of organisms. (amnh.org)
  • Likewise, the relationships between various arthropod groups are still actively debated. (wikipedia.org)
  • Animals
  • The arthropods, or "joint-footed" animals, also fill every imaginable environment, from the deepest ocean trenches to the highest mountain peaks, from the frozen wasteland of Antarctica to the broiling Mojave Desert in the western United States. (scholastic.com)
  • Thanks to their exoskeletons, arthropods became the world's first land animals some 300 million years ago. (scholastic.com)
  • Like all animals, arthropods need oxygen to survive. (scholastic.com)
  • mechanical
  • Recent work has begun to reveal the mechanical transform of the antenna. (biologists.org)
  • Arthropods also have a wide range of chemical and mechanical sensors, mostly based on modifications of the many setae (bristles) that project through their cuticles. (wikipedia.org)
  • live
  • Almost all arthropods lay eggs, but scorpions give birth to live young after the eggs have hatched inside the mother. (wikipedia.org)
  • typical
  • The group has the open circulatory system typical of arthropods, in which a tube-like heart pumps blood through the hemocoel, which is the major body cavity. (wikipedia.org)
