The Arthropoda

The animals with exoskeletons, paired jointed limbs (of varying number) and a segmented body. There are by far more Arthropods than any other type of animal and this is clearly reflected in the garden.

The classes of arthropods currently recorded in the garden are Arachnida (Spiders, Mites and Harvestman), Chilopoda (Centipedes), Collembola (Springtails), Entognatha (Bristletails), Hexanauplia (Copepoda), Insecta (Insects), Malacostraca (Woodlice, Water Slaters), Ostracoda (Ostracods).
