Polychaetes are often large, active forms with well-developed nervous systems
and sense organs. Class Oligochaeta, with fewer 'bristles, includes the common
earthworm, Lumbricus. Class Hirudinea is comprised of the ectoparasitic leeches
, for example H irudo. Finally the class Myzostomaria consists of a number of
small parasites of the Echinoderms. The phylum Arthropoda is perhaps the most
successful of all the phyla in the animal kingdom. Many zoologists believe that, if
all the ...

Resistant plants may also be devoid of or lack sufficient levels of phytochemicals
to stimulate arthropod feeding or oviposition, and allow them to escape
consumption. Arthropod resistant plants may also possess unique
phytochemicals that repel or deter herbivores from feeding or ovipositing. Finally,
resistant plants may also contain chemicals that are toxic to arthropods after
digestion of plant parts. 2. ARTHROPOD SENSORY SYSTEMS INVOLVED IN

Bradbury and Vehrencamp's (2011) recently revised book on communication
covers many of the sensory modalities discussed here in great detail, including
much more information about the physical basis of different modalities and the
types of sensory systems found in animals. Dusenbery (1992) also covers
different sensory modalities, with emphasis on the physical properties of the
types of information available. Greenfield (2002) covers sensory systems in
arthropods in detail.

Mammals typically have billions of neurons, as opposed to the tens of thousands
in arthropods (insects, crabs, etc.). Behavior of mammals is correspondingly more
complex, state dependent and irreproducible. Despite the reduced complexity of
arthropods, the autonomous capabilities of the simplest, still far outstrips that of
any technical artifact. For some years we have been using the behavior and
sensory systems of arthropods as an inspiration for new autonomous systems ...

In another approach, the bulk behavior of large sensory networks such as the
vertebrate retina or the arthropod compound eye has been modeled using the
linear mathematics of engineering systems analysis. Each approach is valid in
the proper context. This text discusses tools and methods that can describe and
predict the dynamic behavior of single neurons, small assemblies of neurons
devoted to a single task (e.g., central pattern generators), larger sensory arrays
and their ...
