Daar is 'n nuwe spesie garnale vernoem na Pink Floyd

Daar is 'n nuwe spesie garnale vernoem na Pink Floyd

Die pistoolgarnale, ook genoem snaakse garnale, kan ook klein vissies doodmaak met soniese energie uit sy klou

Die garnale kan aan die Stille Oseaan -kus van Panama gevind word.

Musiek en kos het noue bande, elkeen bied inspirasie vir die ander, of dit nou is Rolling Stones-tema donuts in Chicago of mezcal geskep deur Adam Levine en Sammy Hagar. Onlangs was 'n rockgroep die inspirasie vir 'n onwaarskynlike groep seeboere: 'n nuwe garnalsoort.

Die Synalpheus pinkfloydi is so genoem as gevolg van sy groot pienk klou en 'n ooreenkoms wat deur wetenskaplikes gemaak is wat nie genoeg van rockmusiek kan kry nie, BBC gerapporteer.

Een van die wetenskaplikes wat ingestem het om die orkes te vereer met die nuutste pienk garnale -ontdekking, Sammy De Grave, navorsingshoof van die Oxford University Museum of National History, het gesê dat hy 'n fan van Pink Floyd se musiek was sedert hy 14 was.

"Die beskrywing van hierdie nuwe spesie pistoolgarnale was die ideale geleentheid om uiteindelik my gunsteling band te knik," het De Grave gesê. 'Ons is almal Pink Floyd -aanhangers, en ons het altyd gesê as ons 'n pienk een, 'n nuwe soort pienk garnale, sou kry, sou ons dit na Pink Floyd noem.

Nog 'n garnaal in die muur: pas ontdekte pistoolgarnale met helder pienk klauw is vernoem na Pink Floyd

'N Opvallend helder pienk-klauwespesie van garnale wat aan die Stille Oseaan-kus van Panama ontdek is, het die uiteindelike rock and roll-naam gekry

ter erkenning van die ontdekkers se gunsteling rockgroep - Pink Floyd. Die opvallend gekleurde pistoolgarnale is genoem Synalpheus pinkfloydi in die wetenskaplike beskrywing van die spesie, gepubliseer as oop toegang in Zootaxa joernaal vandag (12 April British Standard Time).

Die opvallend gekleurde pistoolgarnale is genoem Synalpheus pinkfloydi in die wetenskaplike beskrywing van die spesie, gepubliseer as oop toegang in Zootaxa joernaal vandag (12 April British Standard Time).

Gekombineer met sy duidelike, amper gloeiende pienk klapklou, Synalpheus pinkfloydi word gepas genoem deur die skrywers van die verslag, Arthur Anker van die Universidade Federal de Goiás in Brasilië, Kristin Hultgren, PhD, assistent -professor in biologie aan die Seattle Universiteit in die VSA, en Sammy De Grave, van die Oxford University Museum of Natural History in Oxford, Verenigde Koninkryk.

Net soos alle goeie rockbande, het pistoolgarnale of snaakse garnale die vermoë om aansienlike hoeveelhede soniese energie op te wek. Deur sy vergrote klou teen 'n vinnige spoed te sluit, skep die garnale 'n hoë-druk-kavitasieborrel, waarvan die ineenstorting een van die hardste geluide in die see tot gevolg het-sterk genoeg om 'n klein vissie te verdoof of selfs dood te maak.

De Grave, hoof van navorsing by die Museum of Natural History in Oxford, was 'n lewenslange fan van Pink Floyd en het gewag vir die geleentheid om die regte nuwe spesie na die band te noem.

'Ek luister sedertdien na Floyd Die muur is in 1979, toe ek 14 jaar oud was, vrygestel. Ek het hulle sedertdien verskeie kere lewendig sien speel, insluitend die reünie -optrede van Hyde Park vir Live8 in 2005. Die beskrywing van hierdie nuwe spesie pistoolgarnale was die perfekte geleentheid om uiteindelik my gunsteling band te knik, ”sê hy.

Arthur Anker, die hoofskrywer van die verslag, sê: "Ek speel gereeld Pink Floyd as agtergrondmusiek terwyl ek werk, maar nou is die orkes en my werk gelukkig in die wetenskaplike literatuur gekombineer."

Hultgren sê: "Hierdie briljante pienk kleur is eintlik redelik skaars in lewende garnale, so die naam is baie beskrywend en is ook 'n eerbetoon aan 'n rocklegende."

Synalpheus pinkfloydi is nie die enigste pistoolgarnale met so 'n troebel klou nie. Dit is die naverwante en soortgelyke sustersoort, Synalpheus antillensis, wat wetenskaplik beskryf is in 1909, word in die westelike Atlantiese Oseaan aangetref, insluitend die Karibiese kant van Panama. Maar die skrywers van die nuwe koerant het bevind dat die twee spesies aansienlike genetiese afwykings toon, wat S. pinkfloydi 'n nuwe spesiestatus en 'n eie rock and roll -naam gee.

Diere verskyn gereeld in die Floyd-agterkatalogus. Inderdaad, die album van 1977 Diere bevat snitte met die titel Honde, Skape, en 'n reeks musiek opgedra aan varke. Dan is daar Verskeie spesies klein harige diertjies wat in 'n grot bymekaargekom het en gegroef het met 'n prentjie uit 1969's Ummagumma. Ander bioloë het trouens reeds 'n damselfly genoem na die album: Umma gumma, in die familie Calopterygidae. Tot vandag toe was daar egter geen skaaldiere bekend om die orkes te vereer nie.

De Grave, hoof van navorsing by die Museum of Natural History in Oxford, was 'n lewenslange fan van Pink Floyd en het gewag vir die geleentheid om die regte nuwe spesie na die band te noem.

'Ek luister sedertdien na Floyd Die muur is in 1979, toe ek 14 jaar oud was, vrygestel. Ek het hulle sedertdien verskeie kere lewendig sien speel, insluitend die reünie -optrede van Hyde Park vir Live8 in 2005. Die beskrywing van hierdie nuwe spesie pistoolgarnale was die perfekte geleentheid om uiteindelik my gunsteling band te knik, ”sê hy.

Arthur Anker, die hoofskrywer van die verslag, sê: "Ek speel gereeld Pink Floyd as agtergrondmusiek terwyl ek werk, maar nou is die orkes en my werk gelukkig in die wetenskaplike literatuur gekombineer."

Hultgren sê: "Hierdie briljante pienk kleur is eintlik redelik skaars by lewende garnale, so die naam is baie beskrywend en is ook 'n eerbetoon aan 'n rocklegende."

Synalpheus pinkfloydi is nie die enigste pistoolgarnale met so 'n troebel klou nie. Dit is die naverwante en soortgelyke susterspesie, Synalpheus antillensis, wat wetenskaplik beskryf is in 1909, word in die westelike Atlantiese Oseaan aangetref, insluitend die Karibiese kant van Panama. Maar die skrywers van die nuwe artikel het bevind dat die twee spesies aansienlike genetiese afwykings toon, wat S. pinkfloydi 'n nuwe spesiestatus en 'n eie rock and roll -naam gee.

Diere verskyn gereeld in die Floyd-agterkatalogus. Inderdaad, die album van 1977 Diere bevat snitte met die titel Honde, Skape, en 'n reeks musiek opgedra aan varke. Dan is daar Verskeie spesies klein harige diere wat in 'n grot bymekaargekom het en gegroef het met 'n prentjie uit 1969's Ummagumma. Ander bioloë het trouens reeds 'n damselfly genoem na die album: Umma gumma, in die familie Calopterygidae. Tot vandag toe was daar egter nog geen skaaldiere bekend om die band te eer nie.


Nog 'n garnaal in die muur: pas ontdekte pistoolgarnale met helder pienk klauw is vernoem na Pink Floyd

'N Opvallend helder pienk-klauwespesie van garnale wat aan die Stille Oseaan-kus van Panama ontdek is, het die uiteindelike rock and roll-naam gekry

ter erkenning van die ontdekkers se gunsteling rockgroep - Pink Floyd. Die opvallend gekleurde pistoolgarnale is genoem Synalpheus pinkfloydi in die wetenskaplike beskrywing van die spesie, gepubliseer as oop toegang in Zootaxa joernaal vandag (12 April British Standard Time).

Gekombineer met sy duidelike, amper gloeiende pienk klapklou, Synalpheus pinkfloydi word gepas genoem deur die skrywers van die verslag, Arthur Anker van die Universidade Federal de Goiás in Brasilië, Kristin Hultgren, PhD, assistent -professor in biologie aan die Seattle Universiteit in die VSA, en Sammy De Grave, van die Oxford University Museum of Natural History in Oxford, Verenigde Koninkryk.

Diere verskyn gereeld in die Floyd-agterkatalogus. Inderdaad, die album van 1977 Diere bevat snitte met die titel Honde, Skape, en 'n reeks musiek opgedra aan varke. Dan is daar Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict from 1969’s Ummagumma. In fact, other biologists have already named a damselfly after that album: Umma gumma, in the family Calopterygidae. However, until today there have been no crustacean names known to honor the band.

Combined with its distinct, almost glowing- pink snapping claw, Synalpheus pinkfloydi is aptly named by the report’s authors, Arthur Anker of the Universidade Federal de Goiás in Brazil, Kristin Hultgren, PhD, assistant professor of biology at Seattle University in the USA, and Sammy De Grave, of Oxford University Museum of Natural History in Oxford, UK.

Just like all good rock bands, pistol shrimps, or snapping shrimps, have an ability to generate substantial amounts of sonic energy. By closing its enlarged claw at rapid speed the shrimp creates a high-pressure cavitation bubble, the implosion of which results in one of the loudest sounds in the ocean – strong enough to stun or even kill a small fish.

De Grave, Head of Research at the Museum of Natural History in Oxford, has been a life-long Pink Floyd fan and has been waiting for the opportunity to name the right new species after the band.

“I have been listening to Floyd since Die muur was released in 1979, when I was 14 years old. I’ve seen them play live several times since, including the Hyde Park reunion gig for Live8 in 2005. The description of this new species of pistol shrimp was the perfect opportunity to finally give a nod to my favorite band,” he says.

Arthur Anker, the report’s lead author, says, “I often play Pink Floyd as background music while I’m working, but now the band and my work have been happily combined in the scientific literature.”

Said Hultgren: "This brilliant pink coloration is actually quite rare in living shrimps, so the name is quite descriptive as well as being an homage to a rock legend."

Synalpheus pinkfloydi is not the only pistol shrimp with such a lurid claw. It’s closely-related and similar-looking sister species, Synalpheus antillensis, scientifically described in 1909, is found in the western Atlantic, including the Caribbean side of Panama. But the authors of the new paper found that the two species show considerable genetic divergence, granting S. pinkfloydi a new species status and its very own rock and roll name.

Animals feature frequently in the Floyd back- catalogue. Indeed, the 1977 album Diere includes tracks titled Honde, Sheep, and a suite of music dedicated to pigs. Then there’s Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict from 1969’s Ummagumma.

Combined with its distinct, almost glowing- pink snapping claw, Synalpheus pinkfloydi is aptly named by the report’s authors, Arthur Anker of the Universidade Federal de Goiás in Brazil, Kristin Hultgren, PhD, assistant professor of biology at Seattle University in the USA, and Sammy De Grave, of Oxford University Museum of Natural History in Oxford, UK.

Just like all good rock bands, pistol shrimps, or snapping shrimps, have an ability to generate substantial amounts of sonic energy. By closing its enlarged claw at rapid speed the shrimp creates a high-pressure cavitation bubble, the implosion of which results in one of the loudest sounds in the ocean – strong enough to stun or even kill a small fish.

De Grave, Head of Research at the Museum of Natural History in Oxford, has been a life-long Pink Floyd fan and has been waiting for the opportunity to name the right new species after the band.

“I have been listening to Floyd since Die muur was released in 1979, when I was 14 years old. I’ve seen them play live several times since, including the Hyde Park reunion gig for Live8 in 2005. The description of this new species of pistol shrimp was the perfect opportunity to finally give a nod to my favorite band,” he says.

Arthur Anker, the report’s lead author, says, “I often play Pink Floyd as background music while I’m working, but now the band and my work have been happily combined in the scientific literature.”

Said Hultgren: "This brilliant pink coloration is actually quite rare in living shrimps, so the name is quite descriptive as well as being an homage to a rock legend."

Synalpheus pinkfloydi is not the only pistol shrimp with such a lurid claw. It’s closely-related and similar-looking sister species, Synalpheus antillensis, scientifically described in 1909, is found in the western Atlantic, including the Caribbean side of Panama. But the authors of the new paper found that the two species show considerable genetic divergence, granting S. pinkfloydi a new species status and its very own rock and roll name.

Animals feature frequently in the Floyd back- catalogue. Indeed, the 1977 album Diere includes tracks titled Honde, Sheep, and a suite of music dedicated to pigs. Then there’s Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict from 1969’s Ummagumma. In fact, other biologists have already named a damselfly after that album: Umma gumma, in the family Calopterygidae. However, until today there have been no crustacean names known to honor the band.


Another Shrimp in the Wall: Newly Discovered Pistol Shrimp With Bright Pink Claw Is Named After Pink Floyd

A strikingly bright pink-clawed species of pistol shrimp, discovered on the Pacific coast of Panama, has been given the ultimate rock and roll name

in recognition of the discoverers’ favorite rock band – Pink Floyd. The conspicuously colored pistol shrimp has been named as Synalpheus pinkfloydi in the scientific description of the species, published as open access in Zootaxa journal today (12 April British Standard Time).
