    After being extruded from the oviducts, they are attached by a kind of cementing substance to the swimmerets, where they hang Crustacea book bunches. John H. Where the sac is completely closed it generally contains no solid particles, but in a few Macrura a single otolith secreted by the walls of the sac is present. Crustacea usually have separate sexes, and the eggs hatch into larvae.

    A very curious function sometimes discharged by the antennules or antennae of Decapods Crustacea book that of forming a respiratory siphon in sand-burrowing species. A chemical change takes place under the influence of heat in Crustacea book pigment of the shell, which changes it from blue to red; how slight the change is, is perhaps shown by the fact that occasionally living Lobsters are found of a red colour almost as brilliant as that which is assumed on boiling. The structure of both glands is essentially the same. It is typically tripartite, consisting of three cup-shaped masses of pigment, the cavity of each cup being filled with columnar retinal cells. The most important of these belong to the category of dermal glands, and may be scattered over the surface of the body and limbs, or grouped at certain points for the discharge of special functions.

    Many terrestrial crustaceans such as the Christmas Island red crab mate seasonally and return to the Crustacea book to release the eggs. Depending on the species, crustaceans disperse eggs Crustacea book into the water column, or they carry the eggs in a pouch. The Mesozoic Glyphaeidae have been supposed to stand in the direct line of descent of the modern rock-lobsters and their allies Loricata. The Brachyura, on the other hand, are well represented fig 16, 1, 2. They may, however, be natatory as in many Ostracoda and Copepoda, or prehensile, as in some Copepoda. In the other Malacostraca the heart is generally abbreviated, and even where, as in the Amphipoda, it is elongated and tubular, the ostia are restricted in number, three pairs only being usually present.

If, however, the whole eye-stalk be amputated, and with it the Crustacea book ganglion, there grows in its place, not a new eye-stalk, but a segmented appendage similar to one of the flagella of the antennules.

The most posterior position is occupied by Crustacea book genital apertures Crustacea book certain Phyllopoda Polyartemiawhich lie behind the nineteenth trunk-somite. The water flea Daphnia magna and the brine shrimp Artemia salina are used as fish food in aquariums and fish ponds, and the larvae of the latter are widely used as food for the larvae of larger crustaceans reared in captivity.

Attached to the outer side of the first segment is a membranous plate, known as the epipodite, on which is inserted, near its base, a [12] brush-like structure, which is one of the gills. L from Lynn, Massachusetts nat. This chelate condition may be assumed by almost any of the appendages, and sometimes it appears in different appendages in closely related forms, so that no very great phylogenetic importance can in most cases be attached to it.

The authors also discuss, in depth, the adaptations and interactions that have made parasitic Crustacea as successful as they are today, covering topics ranging from the history of their discovery, their biodiversity, phylogeny, evolution and life strategies to their role as vectors, or hosts of other organisms, and their significance in ecological processes.

The typical nauplius Crustacea book. In the higher Decapoda the male is generally larger than the female and has stronger chelae. In certain Copepoda and Ostracoda glands of the same type produce a phosphorescent substance, and others, in certain Amphipoda and Branchiura, are believed to have a poisonous function.

Crustaceans include crabslobsterscrayfishshrimpCrustacea book and barnacles. In the Cirripedia, for Crustacea book, the latest nauplius stage fig. In most cases this cornea is divided into lenticular facets corresponding to the underlying ommatidia. By undermining paddy embankments, they allow water to drain away, thus exposing the roots of the plants to the sun; if near the coast, salt water may thus be allowed to seep into the paddies.

The structure of both glands is essentially the same. Each rod corresponds to one of the facets, and as it lies at the bottom of a long conical tube, of which the walls are covered with dark pigment, it can only receive light from a single point in line with the axis of the tube.

Many of these hairs are themselves beset with delicate secondary hairs, arranged so that the whole looks like a feather or like a bottle-brush. Copepod larvae are known as nauplii, and they swim using their antennae.
