WHAT DOES MYRIAPOD MEAN IN ENGLISH?

myriapod

Myriapoda

Myriapoda is a subphylum of arthropods containing millipedes, centipedes, and others. The group contains over 13,000 species, all of which are terrestrial. Although their name suggests they have myriad legs, myriapods range from having over 750 legs to having fewer than ten legs. The fossil record of myriapods reaches back into the late Silurian, although molecular evidence suggests a diversification in the Cambrian Period, and Cambrian fossils exist which resemble myriapods. The oldest unequivocal myriapod fossil is of the millipede Pneumodesmus newmani, from the late Silurian. P. newmani is also important as the earliest known terrestrial animal. The phylogenetic classification of myriapods is still debated. The scientific study of myriapods is myriapodology, and those who study myriapods are myriapodologists.

Definition of myriapod in the English dictionary

The definition of myriapod in the dictionary is any terrestrial arthropod of the group Myriapoda, having a long segmented body and many walking limbs: includes the centipedes and millipedes. Other definition of myriapod is of, relating to, or belonging to the Myriapoda.
