Progressive metamorphosis: Type of development of insect in which there is no prolonged stage of rest (chrysales). The three stages are: egg, nymph, and adult.

Metabolism. Metabolic: Chemical changes which occur in alive cells to provide energy for essential activities and to assimilate the new material.

Microbial: Microscopic organization; a germ.

Morphology: Form or structure of an organization.

Multivoltine: More one to have brooded or generation per season.

Mycelium: Filamentous mass interlaced which makes the vegetative part of a mycète.

Myriapodes: Classify animals arthropods whose body is made of rings carrying each one one or two pairs of legs.

Nematode: Oval worm and cylindrical parasite in the animals, insects, in the ground, water.

Ocelles: Simple eyes on some adult and larval insects. In general three, which forms a dorsal reversed triangle, whose function is obscure.

Order: Taxonomic subdivision which contains groups of families or superfamilles.

Parasite: Animal organization or plant which lives with the costs of an other, carrying to him damage but without destroying it, during a certain part of its cycle of life.

Parasitoïde: Alive animal on others, consuming all or majority its fabrics and thereafter killing them.

Parthenogenesis: Reproduction without fecundation, of egg to the adult, without the intervention of a male.

Pédipalpe. The pédipalpes are the second pair of appendix of the céphalothorax in Arachnida, including six articles: the coxa, the trochanter, the femur, the patella, the tibia and the tarsus. It serve not does the locomotion.

Phéromone: Substance, which is released by an individual and causes a specific reaction has other individuals of the same species.

Phylum: Great division of the animal world or vegetable.

Poison of contact: Pesticide which is absorbed by the wall of body, in opposition to one which must be introduced.

Polyembryonic (eggs): Simple egg which divides to form two (often hundreds) identical embryos or more.

Polyembryony: To have several embryos. Population. Group individuals of the same species in a given space and time.

Predator: Animal which attacks and feeds from other animals, normally killing several individuals during his cycle of life.

Protozoon: Microscopic organization which is mainly watery and includes many parasitic forms.

Sclérite: Part hardened or sclerified of the wall of the body, limited by a joining or a membrane.

Scorpion: Animal arthropod of the Class of Arachnida equipped with a pair of grips and whose tail carries a poisonous pivot.

Segment: Subdivision of the body of an arthropod.

Spiracle: Mark Each opening of the ventral area (scorpion) of the body by where the air penetrates in the tracheas.

Septicaemia: Poisoning of blood caused by the pathogenic organizations.
