  • Crab Louse

    how pubic lice developed. However, historical and archaeological evidence demonstrate that crab louse evolved from the similar gorilla louse, Pthirus gorillae (BioMed Central, 2009). Through genetic research on the mitochondrial genome of the chimpanzee louse, researchers found that a single mini-chromosome had fragmented into three sections in the lineage of ectoparasites, which includes head lice, body lice, and pubic lice about 3.3 million years ago (Herd, Barker, Shao, 2015). Diaz predicts that the body louse may have evolved from the head louse after man started wearing clothes without proper grooming techniques, resulting in humans being the predominant host reservoir for pubic lice (Diaz, 2006). However, humans split from gorillas approximately 7 million years ago, indicating that humans developed crab louse from the gorilla family although scientists have not yet proven how this occurred. This could be due to the lack of archaeological records and attitudes towards pubic lice during this time period. Although there has been evidence of crab louse fossils in archaeological deposits, their findings have been significantly rare compared to…

  • Analysis Of The Poem 'To A Louse' By Robert Burns

    final turn in sentimentality. Although initially chastising, the speaker reflects on the virtues of the louse and reaches a universal tenderness by the end of the poem. In fact, the louse teaches him. It deconstructs his idea of the social world and social hierarchy because it sees all humans as just humans, that is, equally human. The importance of the woman with the bonnet is no greater to the louse than one “[…] in some beggar’s haffet squattle”, and as the speaker learns this, touched by…
