    Reflection On Sungei Buloh Trip On the 31st of May 2012, my class went on a field trip to Sungei Buloh Wetlands and Kranji Mudflats. We reached Sungei Buloh at about 11 o’clock and we saw signboards about migratory birds. As we proceeded towards the information center, we saw gigantic spiders, much bigger compared to the ones we find in our homes. When we reached there, it was low tide and so, we could see the roots of the mangrove trees . As we neared the information center, we saw a huge...

  • Arthropods - 710 Words
    Arthropoda The phylum Arthropoda, being the largest phylum in all of the kingdom Animalia, makes up about 84% of all known animal species. From tiny terrestrial insects to the aquatic king crab equipped with a 12 foot arm span, arthropods are evident in every habitat on Earth. Despite the diversified phylum, all members share a basic body structure containing a jointed skeletal covering with jointed appendages. An arthropod’s unique jointed exoskeleton provides support as well as...

  • Isopods - 250 Words
    Isopods are classified under order peracarid crustaceans. Since isopods are crustaceans, they breathe through gill-like structures; however, isopods cannot survive underwater. Instead, they live on land in a damp habitat. In order to sustain that damp environment, they prefer dark surroundings. Because of their requirements, isopods are commonly found under rocks and other light-blocking objects. Furthermore, it also explains why they are most active during nighttime and why they are more...

  • Osmoregulation: Arthropod and Water - 1732 Words
    aWater loss through evaporation is a major problem for animals that live on land, especially small ones like arthropods, and an array of defenses against desiccation have evolved. Both arachnids and insects possess waxy compounds in the epicuticle, the outer layer of the exoskeleton, which greatly reduce evaporative water loss. Arthropods that lack a waxy epicuticle, such as the pill bugs, and very small arthropods, such as mites and pseudoscorpions, live in leaf mold and soil, beneath logs,...

  • Lab Report- Pillbug. - 711 Words
    The Pillbug Pillbugs, those sly little crustaceans, fit in a larger category called arthropods. In case you didn’t know arthropods have exoskeletons. Living under darker places, munching on decayed wood and leaves you’ll discover that they are usually between 5-15 millimeters long. What makes up this length are their three body segments. The names of the three body segments that pillbugs are made up of are called head, thorax, and abdomen. As you see in the picture, they have seven pairs of...

  • External Morphology of Grasshopper - 726 Words
    ABSTRACT Morphology is inherent to an understanding of how insects live and function. Orthopteroid insects are good choices for this study because gross morphological features are readily observed. Like most other insects, the grasshopper (or other Orthopteroid) consists of three general body regions: the head, thorax and abdomen. For morphological studies, antennae were detached from the specimen. Then, the antenna was mounted in a glass slide. The prepared slides were then examined under...

    OUTLINE. Introduction to the Question: -A subclass of pheromones is necromones, which contain oleic acid as a primary component. -Some pheromones trigger aggregation between organisms, others can trigger separation. -Necromones trigger necrophoric (organisms remove their dead) or necrophobic (organisms avoid their dead) behavior. -Arthropods use pheromones, this includes sowbugs and cockroaches. Chemical signals are picked up by antennae. II. Hypothesis: When given a choice between two...

    Allison Jones Dr. McNelis AP Biology--Class 6 2013 September 4 Introduction The study of animal behavior is ethology. There are two basic categories of animal behavior: learned behavior and innate, or inherited, behavior. Learned behavior is when animals acquire knowledge about their behavior through experience.
