Effects of different frequencies of fire on an epigeal
spider community in Southern Caldenal, Argentina.
and epiphytic arthropod dry biomass varied significantly between habitat categories and throughout the season (Table 2 and Fig.
Monocots (1 cotyledon) Dicots (2 cotyledons) Usually herbaceous Herbaceous or woody Linear leaves with parallel veins Leaves with netted venation Vascular bundles scattered in stem Vascular bundles in a ring Fibrous root system Taproot system Hypogeal germination Usually epigeal
There are two main germination types of the seed: epigeal
Upon emergence, the epigeal
seedlings grow rapidly.
No algae lived on the bottom and epigeal
macrobenthos was scarce, with only a few Holothuria leucospilota.
(low-growing) mosses, such as Hylocomium splendens, Pleurozium schreberi, Ptilium crista-castrensis, Rhytidiadelphus triquetrus, Dicranum scoparium, and many more--often species with a circumpolar distribution--form moss carpets, and though they grow mainly on the soil, like Drepanoclados uncinatus, they also occur on a wide range of substrates.
Soldiers are not present in its colonies, nor does it construct an epigeal
termitarium (Nel 1968).
Termites were collected from all possible microhabitats from which colonies with brood or foragers were accessible including sound dry or decomposing wood, arboreal and epigeal
nests (Nasutitermes and Microcerotermes [Termitidae], respectively), and in soil underneath stones and logs.
The seedling (Figure 1E-G) is phanerocotylar and epigeal
, but the envelopes remain temporarily around the cotyledons.
Influence of pesticides on epigeal
arthropod fauna in laboratory tests.
There has been great concern in Brazil on the part of farmers with regard to the high incidence of "mound termites" (cupins de montiado) in pastures, that is, species whose colonies build epigeal
nests in the soil.
