- ... Scorpions (Arachnida: Scorpiones Koch, 1837) are an ancient chelicerate arthropod lineage characterised by distinctive subdivision of the opisthosoma and venomous toxicity. The crown group is represented by over 2400 extant species, and unambiguous fossil representatives are known at least from the Cretaceous Period. However, a number of extinct scorpion lineages existed in the Palaeozoic Era, man ...

- ... Fungi belonging to the Entorrhizales (Entorrhizomycota) comprise biotrophic pathogens associated with roots of the Cyperaceae and Juncaceae plant species. They are nearly globally distributed but rarely studied due to a hidden lifestyle without causing visible effects on host plants. Therefore, the evolutionary origin and phylogenetic relationships of the group are still poorly understood and it i ...
