Rhithrogena germanica, known as the March brown mayfly in in the British Isle, is a species of mayfly that can be found throughout northern and central areas of Europe. Its range includes the River Tweed in England, Hesse in Germany, Denmark, Poland, and France. It was first described by Alfred Edwin Eaton, who studied a male specimen from the River Rhine. Rhithrogena germanica begins its lifecycle in the larval stage, as a water dwelling naiad that is typically found in fast flowing,...
The Vase Tunicate (Ciona intestinalis) is a species of sea squirt widely distributed in Northern European waters. It has also spread to other parts of the world, where it is considered invasive. It grows in dense aggregations on any floating or submerged substrate, especially on artificial structures like pilings, aquaculture gear, floats and boat hulls. It is found in the lower intertidal and subtidal zones. Sea squirts have been long recognized as being possibly the closest invertebrate...
The Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). It is a popular aquarium fish, where it is frequently sold under the trade name Zebra danio, and is also an important model organism. Characteristics The zebrafish arose in the Ganges region in Eastern India and is also native to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Myanmar. It commonly inhabits streams, canals, ditches, ponds and slow-moving to stagnant water bodies, including rice fields. The...
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...
