    Scorpion Biology. Scorpions are in Phylum Arthropoda and are related to spiders (Class Arachnida). Scorpions have pincher-like palps that are used for grasping and/or crushing prey, and they have a characteristic stinger that curves over their back. Either the pinchers or venom kills/subdues the prey so the scorpion can eat.   Book lungs of extant scorpions have a comparable appendicular origin as those of spiders and the book gills of horseshoe crabs [2, 8, 9], the latter having a clearly defined, segmented telopodite (the xiphosuran embryo’s “median lobe”, sensu Farley ; Fig. 4b in).Cited by: 2.

    The book covers scorpion biology (anatomy and the main biological functions, ecology, habitat), as well as venomology and the medical importance of species across the globe (venoms and treatment against envenomation, scorpion control). The myths and legends linked to scorpions are also presented.   Dr Jesus Lozano-Fernandez, a palaeobiologist at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology of Barcelona, said it was a matter of much debate whether the earliest scorpions .
