For the first time, invertebrates
, including insects, arachnids and land snails, have been included on the country's updated 'Red List,' or the National List of Threatened Terrestrial Fauna of the Philippines, expanding the knowledge on critical and vulnerable species in our biodiversity-rich country.
body weight data were obtained from three sources: 1) scientific texts, which included specialized articles, textbooks, technical reports, and postgraduate theses; in some cases the individual weight of the species was derived from documented relationships between weight and height; 2) free databases available on the internet, and 3) direct measurements of specimens in the field and laboratory.
"Evolutionary Ecology of Marine Invertebrate
Larvae" (EEMIL) is dedicated to the memory of larval biologist Larry McEdward by the editors, two of McEdward's former Ph.D.
She explained: "[Mission: Invertebrate] is going to visit different locations over the summer and invertebrates
of course are vertebrates with no backbones.
The collections ofmarine invertebrate
fossils dating as old as 540 million years to recent include cephalopods, gastropods, brachiopods, corals, bryozoans, foraminifers, etc.
keepers are the first in the world to successfully breed the Montserrat tarantulas, marking a crucial step in discovering more about the mysterious species.

Prof Eric Cross, dean of cultural affairs at Newcastle University, says: "The Spineless exhibition provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the wealth of invertebrate
specimens in the Great North Museum: Hancock's collections.
community structure and abundance have been frequently correlated with wetland selection by, and distribution of, both waterfowl and shorebirds throughout the annual cycle (Murkin and Kadlec, 1986; Colwell and Landrum, 1993; Haukos and Smith, 1993; Safran et al., 1997; Anderson and Smith, 1999; Davis and Smith, 2001; Andrei et al., 2009), indicating clear linkages among these taxa.
The main objective of present studywas to fill this gapthrough focusing on documentation of diversity of macro- invertebrate
fauna in wheat-weed agro-ecosystem of Faisalabad district.

ABUNDANCE AND DIVERSITY IN THE WAKE OF THE 2013 CAMARILLO SPRINGS FIRE
Washington, July 25 ( ANI ): A new study has revealed that invertebrate
numbers have decreased by 45 percent on average over a 35 year period in which the human population doubled.
Volunteers are invited to join members of the Freshwater Invertebrate
Network Birmingham and Black Country group (FINBCC), who have already discovered pollution at several sites in the area - including Wash Brook in Washwood Heath.
In Victoria, more than 40 species are listed under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 (FFG) and many more are signalled in the Advisory List of Threatened Invertebrate
Fauna (Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment 2009).
