Weird worms capture attenboroughs attention.
Weird worms are the latest, and probably most interesting, type of animal to have come to the rescue of the curious.
They have been described in detail in the journals Molecular Ecology, Ecology and Evolution, along with several other examples of what was once considered an obscure species.
Now scientists at the University of Cambridge have developed an animal that, like their relatives, has a highly distinctive anatomy.
They’re also said to be among the smallest worms ever discovered. And, crucially, while there are many species of worms that live in the ocean, there are currently little to no known ones that live on land or in coral reefs.
As a consequence, there are little signs of their natural history in the wild.
The tiny creatures, however, were previously considered a mystery.
They were first suggested in an article by Mark Cope and his colleagues back in 2002.
“The worm world is, on the whole, very poorly known,” says Cope.
“There are quite a few things we have not thought about yet.”
By analysing samples from a range of marine invertebrates that grow on and in the reefs off the west coast of the US, Cope and his colleagues identified nearly all of the species described previously.
In other words, most of the known species of marine invertebrates have now been identified.
“It seems pretty straightforward that the only species that are still quite unknown, with the exception of a few animals, are those that grow on and in the reefs,” says Mark Cope.
The team have now used computational modelling of the microscopic features of worms in the aquariums of the animals and marine insects to determine the size, colour and shape of these worms.
For example, the researchers can tell that these tiny animals have quite unusua우리카지노l eye colours, which they previously had not previously determined and only recently began to study.
The results are published in the latest issue of the journal Molecular Ecology.
Cope and his colleagues suggest that these microscopic features are all caused by a combina바카라tion of genetic drift, a population expansion, and natural selection, a process in which species, like worms, eventually find themselves in proximity to on우리카지노e another.
And that is the biggest problem with their research: not only does it appear that these tiny creatures aren’t known to be native to the reefs, they are not actually native.
And despite their very small size, these worms are also ver
