WHAT DOES TERGUM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

tergum

Tergum

A tergum is the dorsal portion of an arthropod segment other than the head. The anterior edge is called the base and posterior edge is called the apex or margin. A given tergum may be divided into hardened plates or sclerites commonly referred to as tergites.:20 So, for example, in a thoracic segment, the tergum may be divided into an anterior notum and a posterior scutellum. Lateral extension of the dorsal aspect of a tergite are called paranota. In crustaceans, the tergum is known as a pleuron when it overhangs the insertion of the limb on each side as a free plate. In contrast to the tergum, the ventral portion of a segment is called the sternum.
