CLASE OSTRACODA PDF

Cyprideis torosa male Ostracods are amazing small crustaceans, which inhabit virtually all aquatic environments on Earth. Thus, they have a "seed"-like appearance, and therefore are also known by the term "seed shrimps" or "mussel shrimps". Ostracods range from warm waters of the tropics to very cold environments such polar seas and are found from intertidal zones to many thousands of metres depth in the deep sea They are also adapted to freshwater niches such as rivers, lakes and even temporary ponds. Most species reproduce sexually but some of them reproduce asexually by parthenogenesis. Scientific name [ Advanced search ] Ostracods are generally tiny animals, with a body length mostly ranging from 0. The planktonic genus Gigantocypris can, however, reach 32mm in length.

Cyprideis torosa male Ostracods are amazing small crustaceans, which inhabit virtually all aquatic environments on Earth. Thus, they have a "seed"-like appearance, and therefore are also known by the term "seed shrimps" or "mussel shrimps".

Ostracods range from warm waters of the tropics to very cold environments such polar seas and are found from intertidal zones to many thousands of metres depth in the deep sea They are also adapted to freshwater niches such as rivers, lakes and even temporary ponds.

Most species reproduce sexually but some of them reproduce asexually by parthenogenesis. Scientific name [ Advanced search ] Ostracods are generally tiny animals, with a body length mostly ranging from 0.

The planktonic genus Gigantocypris can, however, reach 32mm in length. Characteristically ostracods have eight pairs of appendages though they can be fewer in number , which function mostly in feeding, locomotion and for sensory purposes.

Because ostracods have a calcified carapace they have a high preservational capacity. They are by far the most abundant arthropods in the fossil record, occurring in countless numbers at more or less all stratgraphic records from at least the Ordovician onwards. Their soft-parts have even been found in million-year-old rocks. Ostracods have utility: they are used to date and correlate rock sequences world-wide, and are good palaeoenvironmental indicators, revealing information on, for example, palaeobathymetry, palaeosalinity and palaeoclimatic changes of our planet throuph time.

The word "ostracize" comes from the same root due to the practice of voting with shells or potsherds. An outline microfaunal zonal scheme based on both Foraminifera and Ostracoda was compiled by M. A find in Queensland, Australia in , announced in May , at the Bicentennary Site in the Riversleigh World Heritage area, revealed both male and female specimens with very well preserved soft tissue. This set the Guinness World Record for the oldest penis. It was assessed that the fossilisation was achieved within several days, due to phosphorus in the bat droppings of the cave where the ostracods were living. A distinction is made between the valve hard parts and the body with its appendages soft parts. Body parts[ edit ] The body consists of a head and thorax , separated by a slight constriction.
