Kim McDonald, UC San Diego The evolution of worms, insects, vertebrates and other “bilateral” animals—those with distinct left and right sides—from less complex creatures like jellyfish and sea anemones with “radial” symmetry may have been facilitated by the emergence of a completely new "operating system" for controlling genetic instructions in the cell. That’s the hypothesis of molecular biologists at UC San Diego. They report in the October 1 issue of the journal Genes...

The Orthoptera are an order of insects with incomplete metamorphosis, including the grasshoppers, crickets, locusts, and katydids. Many insects in this order produce sound (known as stridulation) by rubbing their wings against each other or their legs, the wings or legs containing rows of corrugated bumps. Their ears, located in the front legs, are interconnected in such a way that they are able to locate each other by sound. Characteristics Orthopterans have two pairs of wings - the...

The Ghost Shrimp, Pestarella tyrrhena is a species of thalassinidean crustacean that dwells in shallow, sandy tunnels of the ocean floor in the Mediterranean Sea and northern Atlantic Ocean. Initially, the crustacean derived its name from the Tyrrhenian Sea where it inhabited. The crustacean was called formerly Callianassa tyrrhena, but current common terminology for the species is Ghost Shrimp or Mud Shrimp. Fishermen in the Mediterranean have used it as bait for at least 200 years...
