The effects of varied grazing management on epigeal spiders, harvestmen and pseudoscorpions
of Nardus stricta grassland in upland Scotland.
Crustacea dominate as predators (Cheng 1976), while a range of centipedes (Class Chilopoda), symphylids (Class Symphyla), pauropods (Class Pauropoda), millipedes (Class Diplopoda), scorpions (Order Scorpiones), microwhip scorpions (Order Palpigradi), pseudoscorpions
), mites and ticks (Order Acari) and spiders (Order Araneae) have also been recorded as living in the intertidal region worldwide (Roth & Brown 1976).
Other prey, such as hemipterans, lepidopterans, hymenopterans, pseudoscorpions
, chilopods, solpugids, thysanurans, odonates, and dipterans, were found in much lower percentages in lizards of both sexes (Table 3).
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Researchers reported that male pseudoscorpions
treated with the antibiotic tetracycline suffer significantly reduced sperm viability and pass this toxic effect on to their untreated sons.
Invertebrates observed in these caves included crustaceans (16 species), pseudoscorpions
(2 species), spiders (7), millipedes (8), a dipluran (1), psocopteran (1), collembolans (18), beetles (22), and flies (6).
There are photo-packed chapters on wood lice, slugs and snails, aphids, caterpillars, worms, earwigs, ladybugs, spiders, crickets & katydids, pseudoscorpions
, mosquito larvae, dragonfly larvae, and backswimmers.
The book offers notes drawing to the attention of curious observers many of the common invertebrates living on the old farm, including sponges, snails, clams, worms of several sorts, bryozoans, spiders, harvestmen, pseudoscorpions
, mites, crustaceans, centipedes, and millipedes.
All around the second-growth vegetation, the fallen trees and branches rot and crumble offering hiding places and food to a vast array of basidiomycete fungi, slime molds, ponerine ants, scolytid beetles, bark lice, earwigs, embiopteran web spinners, zorapterans, entomobryomorph springtails, japygid diplurans, schizomid arachnids, pseudoscorpions
, real scorpions, and other forms that live mostly or exclusively in this habitat.
Despite this considerable species diversity, the morphology of pseudoscorpions
is very conservative, and it can therefore be difficult to distinguish between closely related species on the basis of morphological features alone (Zeh & Zeh 1994; Wilcox et al.
This study provides an update to the endemic biota of Arkansas by adding 19 species to the state list, including two fungi, three gastropods, one araneid, two opilionids, two pseudoscorpions
, one diplopod, three collembolans, two trichopterans, one coleopteran, one dipteran and one hymenopteran.
2001), spiders (Watson 1991), pseudoscorpions
(Zeh & Zeh 2007), newts (Gabor & Halliday 1997), and guppies (Pitcher et al.
Johanna van Bronswijk of the Netherlands won "for doing a census of all the mites, insects, spiders, pseudoscorpions
, crustaceans, bacteria, algae, ferns, and fungi with whom we share our beds each night.
