After awhile of being underwater they began to become more curious of me and came out of hiding. After 30 minutes on my first dive observing them, they didn’t seem to mind my presence at all, some of the larger males would even swim up to my mask and start flaring their fins trying to intimidate me. After about 50 min on my first dive i started to flip over rocks to expose small crustaceans and stirring up the sediment on the bottom. After flipping the rocks i was surrounded by H.bivittatus, they were no longer fighting each other or me they were just focusing on the food, however they still would not let any other species, such as mangrove snapper, come in close to fee. I did this every dive in much the same manner, such as mangrove snapper, come in close to feed. I did this every dive in much the same manner, after about 45 minutes or so i would start turning these rocks up trying to get a good vies of their feeding and also to know how territorial they are towards each other and other species of fish. It seemed on my fourth dive and fifth dive, they were immediately used to my presence and started encircling me just wanting…

    (Robison and Kaesler, 1987) Trilobites had highly-calcified exoskeletons, at a magnitude on-par with ostracodes and other crustaceans. The size, articulation, and morphology of the trilobite exoskeleton are useful descriptors. In some cases, these properties can serve as distinguishing characters; in other cases, minor differences in these properties can exist among genera and even species. Variations in size and morphology of the tagmata may also be used to identify developmental phases in…

    the valve in 2002, the increased salinity in these three areas has allowed for marine and estuarine fauna to reinhabit the marsh (Smith & Medeiros, 2013). However, East Harbor has only been partially restored because an additional small culvert under High Head Road that connects Moon Pond to the Main Lagoon (Thiet et al. 2014) is too small to create significant tides in the Main Lagoon (Portnoy, 2006). Despite this, benthic invertebrate diversity and density have increased significantly (Thiet…

    mollusks, oxygen utilization is relatively high—up to 70 percent of the oxygen is extracted from the water passing over the gills in the European crayfish Astacus. A decrease in the partial pressure of oxygen in the water elicits a marked increase in ventilation (the volume of water passing over the gills); at the same time, the rate of oxygen utilization declines somewhat. Although more oxygen is extracted per unit of time, the increased ventilation increases the oxygen cost of breathing. The…

    Introduction The diversity of arthropods extends beyond the location factor alone as multiple influences such as humidity levels, atmospheric content and other environmental conditions contribute to their widespread assortment. Gaps in diversity indices do not only occur amongst insect populations residing at regionally distinct locations as these influences are also reflected in arthropod communities over small distances. Climatic conditions often lead to insect migrations and extinctions which…
