Animals are multicellular eukaryotic organisms that form the biological kingdom Animalia.
An arthropod (from Greek ἄρθρον arthron, "joint" and πούς pous, "foot") is an invertebrate animal having an exoskeleton (external skeleton), a segmented body, and paired jointed appendages.
Benthos is the community of organisms that live on, in, or near the seabed, also known as the benthic zone.
The Chaetiliidae are a family of isopod crustaceans in the suborder Valvifera, comprising these genera.
Crustaceans (Crustacea) form a large, diverse arthropod taxon which includes such familiar animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimp, krill, woodlice, and barnacles.
A cuticle, or cuticula, is any of a variety of tough but flexible, non-mineral outer coverings of an organism, or parts of an organism, that provide protection.
Echinoderm is the common name given to any member of the phylum Echinodermata (from Ancient Greek, ἐχῖνος, echinos – "hedgehog" and δέρμα, derma – "skin") of marine animals.
Foraminifera (Latin for "hole bearers"; informally called "forams") are members of a phylum or class of amoeboid protists characterized by streaming granular ectoplasm for catching food and other uses; and commonly an external shell (called a "test") of diverse forms and materials.
Glyptonotus antarcticus is a benthic marine isopod crustacean in the suborder Valvifera.
The intertidal zone, also known as the foreshore and seashore and sometimes referred to as the littoral zone, is the area that is above water at low tide and under water at high tide (in other words, the area between tide marks).
Isopoda is an order of crustaceans that includes woodlice and their relatives.
James Eights (1798–1882) was an American physician, scientist, and artist.
Malacostraca is the largest of the six classes of crustaceans, containing about 40,000 living species, divided among 16 orders.
A model organism is a non-human species that is extensively studied to understand particular biological phenomena, with the expectation that discoveries made in the organism model will provide insight into the workings of other organisms.
The Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University is among the oldest, largest, and most prolific university natural history museums in the world.
Predation is a biological interaction where a predator (a hunting animal) kills and eats its prey (the organism that is attacked).
Scavenging is both a carnivorous and a herbivorous feeding behavior in which the scavenger feeds on dead animal and plant material present in its habitat.
The South Shetland Islands are a group of Antarctic islands, lying about north of the Antarctic Peninsula, with a total area of.
A species description is a formal description of a newly discovered species, usually in the form of a scientific paper.
In biology, a type is a particular specimen (or in some cases a group of specimens) of an organism to which the scientific name of that organism is formally attached.
The Valvifera are marine isopod crustaceans.
Yale University is an American private Ivy League research university in New Haven, Connecticut.
