A non-marine horseshoe crab from the Middle Triassic (Anisian)
Horseshoe crabs (Xiphosura) have a long evolutionary history starting in the Ordovician, but the number of species is relatively low.
Are wing contours good classifiers for automatic identification in Odonata? A view from the Targeted Odonata Wing Digitization (TOWD) project
In recent decades, a lack of available knowledge about the magnitude, identity and distribution of biodiversity has given way to a taxonomic impediment where species are not being described as
Species Identification and Description in Dragonflies & Damselflies: Model Organisms for Ecological and Evolutionary Research
Species identification and description are two of the basic tasks in taxonomy, commonly known as alpha-taxonomy.
Odonata Collections and Databases in Dragonflies & Damselflies: Model Organisms for Ecological and Evolutionary Research
The Odonata community has embraced the benefits afforded by the digital age to access specimens, promote and disseminate data, engage with an ever-growing community of enthusiasts, and answer big questions.
Diversity of Palaearctic Dragonflies and Damselflies (Odonata)
More than 1.2 million distribution records were used to create species distribution models for 402 Palaearctic species of dragonflies and damselflies.
Crustaceans in ancient cold seeps
Cold seeps are spots in the oceans where fluids such as methane and hydrogen sulfide escape from the bottom of the ocean into the water column.
Return to a crustacean diversity hotspot
Last month, Dr. Adiel Klompmaker (UA Museums’ Curator of Paleontology) and Dr. Cristina Robins (a UA Museums’ Research Associate) participated in the 8th Symposium on Fossil Decapod Crustaceans organized in
