We report data from two partial carapaces
, postcranial elements, and a skull recovered from two localities from the Mexican states of Tamaulipas and Tlaxcala (Fig.
Prior to exposure, the lobster carapaces
were rinsed with sterilized filtered seawater before filter placement, and the filters were then placed onto the lateral carapace
of the lobsters.
Specifically, adhesive should be applied around the transmitter to cover a larger surface area and increase the angle between the PTT and carapace
We weighed each turtle with a spring balance to the nearest 10 g and measured plastron length, carapace
length, width, and height with calipers to the nearest 1 mm.
is preserved in lateral aspect, which suggests that it was originally laterally compressed and that the sternal region was very narrow.
A turtle carapace
fragment from the well known Tunica Hills Locality, West Feliciana Parish, Louisana is referable to the marine genus Caretta.
There are also some differences in relative carapace
strength/solidity between the species, with snow crab carapaces
being softer (National Fisheries Research and Development Institute 2008).
Contemporary architects like Greg Lynn have built on these theories and, using the techniques pioneered by animation software, have developed a new repertoire of form: Beginning with the idea of the "blob" and more recently experimenting with the forms of complex organisms from butterflies to jellyfish, Lynn has designed coffee sets that interlock like the carapaces
of insects and turtles and institutions that unfold from the ground like giant colorful orchids or artichokes.
Mixtures with less clofibric acid resulted in less mortality but cause some daphnia offspring to have malformed carapaces
There, far too often, buildings are vulgar gestures striving for recognition at all costs, with the organizations they contain so constrained within fashionable carapaces
that the only way in which they can change and grow is to knock down the structures and start again.
The evidence for a terminal molt include (1) field measurement of 288 adults in Pleasant Bay indicating adults of several age groups have similar size distributions (Shuster 1955), (2) the male pedipalp is transformed at maturity from chelate form to a swollen hook useful for grasping females during amplexus, (3) presence of internal chitinous fibers (trabeculae) in male and female adults, which could interfere with ecdysis (Shuster & Sekiguchi 2003), (4) the observation that slipper shells (Crepidula fornicata) up to 8 y old have been found attached to adult carapaces
indicating that molting had not occurred for at least the slipper shell's lifespan (Botton & Ropes 1988a, Grady et al.
The scraped material from healthy carapaces
was also suspended in sterile seawater to optical densities similar to those of lesion material suspensions and processed in the fashion similar to that of lesion material.
