As Ahmed told Live science, the Western Ghats' "species richness, coupled with a lack of proper research on many groups of invertebrates in the region, means there are several organisms waiting to be discovered, or rediscovered. And that's just what we're doing, discovering spiders one species at a time.
The sea life includes birds, marine mammals and an abundant sub-ice fauna of invertebrates and polar fishes. The birds and mammals are homeotherms, warm-blooded, and they conserve their body heat by means of insulating blubber or feathers. The fishes and invertebrates, on the other hand, are ...
Humans have contributed to rising ocean temperatures, increases in pollution, ocean acidification and growing pressures from the seafood industry. Similar to the way humans experience elevated levels of stress when exposed to loud or impulsive noise, marine invertebrates are impacted by the rising ...
engineers at the Liaoning Ocean and fisheries science Research Institute in Dalian, China are developing a so-called "jellyfish shredder" to deal with large swarms of the marine invertebrates. According to the South China Morning Post, the device consists of a net hundreds of yards long lined with sharp ...
Its diet is also unknown, but if this species is like other tarantulas, the newfound black-and-blue arthropod likely eats small invertebrates, such as cockroaches, moths, crickets and katydids, and possibly the occasional vertebrate, such as a small frog, Snyder said. Researchers have yet to formally classify ...

An earthworm cut in two parts can survive and regenerate. For humans, the loss of limbs is a severe problem that can only be treated by complex surgery. However, among animals, there are numerous examples of self-healing mechanisms, especially among invertebrates. How these regeneration ...

drone photographer Kenny Melendez noted that the animal, which was likely foraging for rays or tasty invertebrates in the shallows, seemed unperturbed by its fellow swimmers. "It seemed very uninterested in the people in the water," Melendez told GrindTV. "I was shocked to see how close the shark got to ...
As explained by Snyder, the new finds highlight the importance of conservation in the area, including the sometimes overlooked effort to protect invertebrates such as insects. "Though often overlooked and not typically mentioned during conservation conversations," he said, "invertebrates are vital to the ...
Tan Yehui, a researcher with the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology at the Chinese Academy of sciences in Guangzhou, said jellyfish posed a serious threat to aircraft carriers given the size and complexity of the warships. A large number of the invertebrates can get sucked into a ship's water intake ...
invertebrates are the animals that do not have a backbone. The evolution of vertebrates from invertebrates is the major topic of evolutionary biology, and by this reason it is important to elucidate the phylogenetic relationships between vertebrates and invertebrate groups. Recently, the biologists have ...
invertebrates are incredibly diverse. Indeed, some estimate that insects alone represent more than 50% of all named species. One might argue that this huge abundance is simply a trade-off for small size, but they also rule the world in terms of sheer biomass. Every hectare of tropical rainforest contains ...
