Observations on the systematics of the genus Difflugia in Britain (Rhizopoda, Protozoa) Vol Page 1 Cirolana cranchi Leach, (Crustacea: Isopoda:. Members of genus Difflugia have been classically defined by their shells that are always composed of mineral particles and diatoms embedded in sheet-like organic cement secreted by the amoebae.

Notably, D. urceolata is one of the most widely reported species of the genus Difflugia, probably due to its large size and distinctive shape.

To permit correct identification to species level, the description of a new taxon should comprise information not only on characters of the shell (if possible by light and scanning electron microscopy) but also on characters of the cell and biometrical by:   Ogden CG () Observations on the systematics of the genus Difflugia in Britain (Rhizopoda, Protozoa).

Bull. by: Gauthier-Lièvre & Thomas () in their survey of the African species have divided the genus Difflugia into ten artificial groups based on the morphology of the test: lobed, collared, compressed, urceolate, globose, ovoid-globose, elongate, acute angled, horned and pyriform.

The size of Difflugia spp. ranges from 15 µm up to more than µm. The species accounts provide additional characters for identification, along with observation tips, indicating the habitat and habits of the species. A distribution map and flight diagram are given, based on the large dataset that resulted from the extensive British hoverfly recording scheme, which has been led by the authors for many : Menno Reemer.

One of the more than species in this genus is the "slender riccia" (Riccia fluitans), which grows on damp soil or, less commonly, floating in ponds, and is sometimes used in aquariums.

The sporophyte of Riccia is the simplest amongst bryophytes. It consist of only a capsule, missing both foot and seta, and does not perform : Marchantiopsida.

Denis Summers-Smith first took up the study of the House Sparrow inthinking that the difficulties of travel in post-war Britain would best suit the study of a species always close at hand. The humble House Sparrow, common everywhere, was surprisingly poorly researched and his work soon provided interesting insights into this successful and adaptable little bird.

This lichen is rarely fertile and mainly characterized by a sorediate thallus producing protocetraric acid. However, phylogenetic analyses using nuLSU, RPB2 and nuITS sequences suggest that E. sorediata belongs to the genus Syncesia and is. A great proportion of biodiversity is accounted for by organisms, particularly insects, intimately associated with plants.

SYSTEMATICS OF THE MUS SPECIES GROUP, THE HOUSE MOUSE, AND THE CLASSICAL INBRED STRAINS Commensal, feral, and aboriginal animals. Animals that are members of the genus Mus can be further classified according to their relationship to humankind. The house mouse represents one group within this genus that is characterized by its ability to live in close association.

The history of botany examines the human effort to understand life on Earth by tracing the historical development of the discipline of botany—that part of natural science dealing with organisms traditionally treated as plants. Rudimentary botanical science began with empirically-based plant lore passed from generation to generation in the oral traditions of paleolithic hunter-gatherers.

Nebela Nebela Leidy, (ref. ID; Cash () noted that the spines were seldom seen on specimens from Britain. From our observations we suggest that this was due mainly to their fragility, as they are easily lost in handling.

Context. The Ornithological Dictionary is George Montagu's best-known work, and the one that established his reputation as a pioneer of British ornithology. He compiled the book at his home Knowle House, near Kingsbridge in Devon. It was published soon after the first volume of Thomas Bewick's illustrated handbook, A History of British Birds, which appeared in Author: George Montagu.
