In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Frugivorous vertebrates ingest fruits and the seeds within, later defecating the seeds.
- The third puzzle is why all of this should happen in warm-blooded vertebrates but not in cold-blooded vertebrates.
- When the fossilized lamprey lived, there were probably many types of jawless vertebrates.
- In short, this analysis finds that conodonts are more derived than any of the living jawless vertebrates.
- Instead the molecules that orchestrate adaptive immunity are found in the jawed vertebrates and nowhere else.
- Following Simpson, Newell mentioned the example of the relatively wider limb bones of larger land vertebrates.
- Owen's studies on fossil vertebrates were immensely productive.
- Unlike all other jawed vertebrates, placoderms never had teeth, and did not descend from toothed ancestors.
- Their presence suggests the feature appeared in a common ancestor of jawed vertebrates, or gnathostomes.
- The temperature at which the eggs of ectothermic vertebrates incubate can influence several phenotypic traits of offspring.
- No one had unambiguously located such genes in animals more primitive than the jawed vertebrates.
- And we're slow, compared to most big warm-blooded vertebrates.
- For that reason the earliest terrestrial vertebrates did not come equipped with an occiput, as we understand the term.
- Such a growth trajectory is uncommon or unreported among terrestrial vertebrates and merits closer examination.
- Floras and faunas from these beds have been discussed, but the remains of small vertebrates have received little attention.
- Jawed vertebrates appeared 100 million years later, in the Silurian.
- If you look at all the warm-blooded vertebrates, we've all got roughly the same life span.
- The limbs of tetrapod vertebrates evolved from fins, with the digits as a novel feature.
- But some land vertebrates have lost some or all of their ability to detect pheromones.
- In contrast, people and other jawed vertebrates brandish adaptive immune systems.
- In at least some areas of the river, Axarus larvae are eaten by vertebrate predators.
- The spider is the also first known predator that deliberately feeds on vertebrate blood by eating mosquitoes.
- Variations in lemming abundance had a considerable effect on many other vertebrate species in this community.
- For more information, see our new exhibits on vertebrate flight and avian flight.
- Similar dispersal behavior among vertebrate siblings has been reported.
- Members of all vertebrate classes predate eggs and hatchlings.
- Burying beetles fly in search of small vertebrate carcasses that they inter and subsequently use as the sole larval food source.
- The beluga sturgeon is one of the most long-lived of all vertebrate species.
- This junction is clearly visible as a dark band or basal lamina in electron micrographs of developing vertebrate teeth.
- To delve further into this subject, check out our new exhibits on vertebrate flight and chiropteran flight.
- If we are ever to develop a theory of vertebrate osteology, this is one of the most remarkable facts it will have to explain.
- Each vertebrate species was infected by different subsets of oMG's.
- In tropical rainforests, the majority of woody plant species disperse seeds via vertebrate frugivores.
- New mutated forms of GFP that are more intensely fluorescent provide more avenues for its use in vertebrate systems.
- Indeed, during this time most of the various invertebrate and vertebrate phyla evolved.
- Most investigation into such an antipredatory benefit has focused on caudal autotomy in vertebrate taxa.
- However, vertebrate material was rare in this deposit, and there was not enough material to analyze biochemically.
- Understanding of the earliest amniotes has been a central pursuit of vertebrate paleontologists over the past century.
- In addition to abundant crinoids, a diverse invertebrate and vertebrate fauna is contained within the Muldraugh.
- Examples of this behavioral hierarchy appear in every vertebrate group.
English has borrowed many of the following foreign expressions of parting, so you’ve probably encountered some of these ways to say goodbye in other languages.
Many words formed by the addition of the suffix –ster are now obsolete - which ones are due a resurgence?
As their breed names often attest, dogs are a truly international bunch. Let’s take a look at 12 different dog breed names and their backstories.
