I’m working on a biology multi-part question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
(a) Compare and contrast FEEDING modes among the 4 major subphyla of the Arthropoda with particular emphasis on the Crustacea and the Hexapoda. Include how the body design influences their feeding modes and which limbs play major roles in feeding. Specific examples are key.
(b) We had an extensive discussion on success versus dominance based on the article titled “Entomomology for the copepodologist” by Schminke (2007). In the diagram below (an excerpt of Fig. 6 from the paper), indicate (label them with the following numbers) which Order of insects is (UN) unsuccessful; (SN) Successful but not dominant and (SD) Successful and dominant. Take a screenshot or provide a list of Orders with their labels to their right.
(c) Discuss the paper author’s main arguments for the absolute success of COPEPODA as it compares to the HEXAPODA and provide specific examples.
(d) Draw a diagram (label all axes and components) of Arthropoda growth and apparent growth, as well as non-Arthropoda growth and discuss the differences between these concepts.
