• insects
  • Odonata cannot fold their wings over the body like most insects. (discoverlife.org)
  • The greatest sources of difficulty in placing the Odonata in relation to the other orders are that authors disagree about which veins in the odonate wing relate to which veins in the wings of other insects, and about which states of wing vein characters are primitive and which are derived. (tolweb.org)
  • Fabricius coined the term Odonata from the Greek οδόντoς (οδούς), odontos (tooth) apparently because they have teeth on their mandibles, even though most insects also have toothed mandibles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Neoptera
  • 3. Kristensen (1981, 1991), Wheeler (1989) and Bechly (1996) each favored a sister-group relationship between Odonata and Neoptera, but disagreed on placement of the other branches. (tolweb.org)
  • holes
  • The nest is found in pre-existing holes, usually in trees and artificial structures such as pipes and fence posts, and in nestboxes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Physicochemical parameters of water collected from the tree holes show that the water is generally acidic with high levels of total dissolved solids, phosphates, sulphates and nitrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the presence of predatory larvae of L. tricolor may significantly influence the community structure of tree holes. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • The Protanisoptera, another ancestral group which lacks certain wing vein characters found in modern Odonata, lived from the Early to Late Permian age until the end Permian event, and are known from fossil wings from current day United States, Russia, and Australia, suggesting they might have been cosmopolitan in distribution. (wikipedia.org)
  • Odonata are found on all continents except Antarctica and are concentrated in warmer, tropical habitats. (discoverlife.org)
  • breeds
  • The tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) is a migratory passerine bird that breeds in North America and winters in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tree swallow breeds in North America. (wikipedia.org)
  • sight
  • Recently freezing rain coated trees with ice and the sight reminded me that when a freeze is threatening fruit trees in the spring, just as buds are breaking, orchardists often opt to replicate this phenomenon by starting a sprinkler and coating their trees with ice. (wordpress.com)
  • Genus
  • The tree swallow is usually placed in the genus Tachycineta, although it is sometimes placed in the genus Iridoprocne, along with the mangrove swallow, white-rumped swallow, white-winged swallow, and Chilean swallow. (wikipedia.org)
  • forests
  • The Texas emerald is rarely seen by humans because of its tendency of flying up and perching in and or on the canopy in trees or forests. (wikipedia.org)
  • page
  • This page is a note that is attached to a branch of the Tree of Life . (tolweb.org)
  • For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page. (tolweb.org)
  • sister
  • Tarsophlebiidae is a prehistoric family of Odonatoptera that can be considered either a basal lineage of Odonata or their immediate sister taxon. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • The body shape of odonata have led them to earn names than mean "devil's steelyard" and such because they look like heavy tools. (discoverlife.org)
  • water
  • If water is continually applied to the tree and consistently freezes, it is possible to maintain the buds around 32 degrees F., thereby protecting the flowers within them. (wordpress.com)
  • area
  • Eager to discuss applicable methods for behavioral change and conservation psychology, she teamed up with researchers at the USFS to determine people's perceptions of the trees and aesthetics in the buck-thorn pilot area. (lcfpd.org)
  • The area is densely forested, original trees are oak and beech. (wikipedia.org)
