Invertebrates (Terrestrial)

Identification of Focal Research Groups:

A phylogenic tree is provided below in order to portray Invertebrates included in the range of study and likelihood of focus. As Terrestrial Invertebrates number so many in terms of family, genus and species, it is not possible to concentrate on all at this point in time within the research remit. Marine Invertebrates will also be left to the side for the moment. In all a life's work. The diagram is colour coded as displayed.

  • Odonata ( Damsel/Dragon Flies).

  • Ephemerodtera ( Mayflies).

  • Dictyoptera (Cockroaches & Mantids).

  • Dermaptera (Earwigs).

  • Orthoptera (Grasshoppers & Crickets).

  • Psocoptera (Book Lice).

  • Malophaga ( Biting Lice).
