Animal biodiversity: An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness. Magnolia Press. 2011. p.198. ISBN 978-1-86977-849-1. Classification of the Phasmatodea". Archived from the original on 3 October 2015 . Retrieved 2 October 2015. Some species are equipped with a pair of glands at the anterior (front) edge of the prothorax that enables the insect to release defensive secretions, including chemical compounds of varying effect: some produce distinct odors, and others can cause a stinging, burning sensation in the eyes and mouth of a predator. [21] The spray often contains pungent-smelling volatile metabolites, previously thought to be concentrated in the insect from its plant food sources. However, it now seems more likely that the insect manufactures its own defensive chemicals. [22] Additionally, the chemistry of the defense spray from at least one species, Anisomorpha buprestoides, has been shown to vary [22] based on the insect's life stage or the particular population it is part of. [23] This chemical spray variation also corresponds with regionally specific color forms in populations in Florida, with the different variants having distinct behaviors. [24] The spray from one species, Megacrania nigrosulfurea, is used as a treatment for skin infections by a tribe in Papua New Guinea because of its antibacterial constituents. [25] Some species employ a shorter-range defensive secretion, where individuals bleed reflexively through the joints of their legs and the seams of the exoskeleton when bothered, allowing the blood ( hemolymph), which contains distasteful compounds, to discourage predators. Another ploy is to regurgitate their stomach contents when harassed, repelling potential predators.

In general, electrons are much more free to move around inside a substance than protons, and it is the flow of electrons to or from a substance which allows the substance to become either negatively charged or positively charged. a b Dossey, Aaron; Spencer Walse; James R.

Phasmida is the oldest and simplest name, first used by Leach in 1815 in "Brewster’s Edinburgh Encyclopaedia" volume 9, p.119, and widely used in major entomological textbooks, dictionaries and many scientific papers and books on phasmids. As there is no compulsion to select the "grammatically correct" name [which some argue is Phasmatodea Jacobson & Bianchi, 1902], selection of a long established (and simple) name is reasonable, although the probability of persuading all colleagues to agree on the use of Phasmida is unlikely.

Atoms have an equal amount of protons and electrons. Each electron has a negative charge and each proton has a positive charge. These two charges are equal, which means that each atom has zero net charge. As a result, it is electrically neutral.When the wand touches the mylar strips they gain the same charge as the wand. For example, if the wand is negatively charged it will transfer excess electrons to the mylar strips and they too will become negatively charged. If the wand is positively charged it will "pull" electrons from the mylar strips and they too will become positively charged. The like charges contained inside the mylar strips repel each other which causes the mylar itself to expand as a result. And at the same time the like charge on the wand and mylar strips cause them to repel each other hence producing the levitation effect.

Other things to consider as you compare fly traps include the product’s installation requirements; whether it’s designed for indoor or outdoor use; and if it includes harmful chemicals that you need to keep away from pets and children. How We Selected

The Phasmatodea life cycle is hemimetabolous, proceeding through a series of several nymphal instars. Once emerged, a nymph will eat its cast skin. Adulthood is reached for most species after several months and many molts. The lifespan of Phasmatodea varies by species, but ranges from a few months to up to three years. [31] Ecology [ edit ]
