Bambusa vulgaris, common bamboo, is an open-clump type bamboo species. It is native to Indochina and to the province of Yunnan in southern China, but it has been widely cultivated in many other places and has become naturalized in several. Among bamboo species, it is one of the largest and most easily recognized.
The bowstripe barb (Enteromius viviparus) is a species of cyprinid fish in the genus Enteromius. This species is native to Southern Africa.
The males become golden in colour while the females remain silver-brown. Both sexes have a dark stripe running longitudinally along the flanks.
The specific epithet viviparus ("viviparous") is in error; they lay eggs just like all other Enteromius. Fry have been noted in the lower reaches of slow flowing streams entering rivers, while adults have been noted amongst aquatic vegetation on river margins and in quiet pools in rapids.
Cipangopaludina malleata is a species of large, freshwater snail with an operculum and a gill, an aquatic gastropod mollusk in the family Viviparidae, the river snails.Originally from Japan, C. malleata has been introduced to various areas along the Pacific coast of North America.
Coneyhurst Cutting is a 0.2-hectare (0.49-acre) geological Site of Special Scientific Interest south-east of Billingshurst in West Sussex. It is a Geological Conservation Review site.This road cutting exposes a 0.43-metre (0.47-yard) thick layer of limestone dating to the Lower Weald Clay of the Early Cretaceous around 130 million years ago. The layer contains the fossils of large Viviparus (freshwater river snails) preserved in three dimensions.The site is a road verge which is covered with scrub and trees and no geology is visible.
Dictyocaulus is a genus of nematode parasites of the bronchial tree of horses, sheep, goats, deer, and cattle. Dictyocaulus arnfieldi is the lungworm of horses, and Dictyocaulus viviparus is the lungworm affecting ruminants.
Sebastes is a genus of fish in the family Sebastidae (though some include this in the Scorpaenidae), most of which have the common name of rockfish. A few are called ocean perch, sea perch or redfish, instead. Most of the Sebastes species live in the north Pacific, although two (S. capensis and S. oculatus) live in the South Pacific/Atlantic and four (S. fasciatus, S. mentella, S. norvegicus, and S. viviparus) live in the North Atlantic. The coast off Southern California is the area of highest rockfish diversity, with 56 species living in the Southern California Bight.
The fossil record of rockfish goes back to the Miocene, from California and Japan (although fossil otoliths from Belgium, "Sebastes" weileri, may push the record back as far as the Oligocene).
Rockfish are important sport and commercial fish, and many species have been overfished. As a result, seasons are tightly controlled in many areas. Sebastes species are sometimes fraudulently substituted for the more expensive northern red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus).
The viviparous eelpout (Zoarces viviparus), also known as the, viviparous blenny and European eelpout is an eelpout in the family Zoarcidae. It is notable for giving birth to live larvae (hence the description "mother of eels"). It is a common soup ingredient in Mediterranean countries. The bones are of greenish colour, due to a harmless pigment. Their skin is slimy and the color is variable.
Viviparous eelpouts grow to a maximum length of 52 centimetres (20 in) and a maximum weight of 510 grams (18 oz). They typically live at water depths up to 40 metres (130 ft). The fish live to a maximum age of 10 years.
Viviparus georgianus, common name the banded mystery snail, is a species of large freshwater snail with gills and an operculum, an aquatic gastropod mollusk in the family Viviparidae, the river snails.
This snail is native to the southeastern United States. The specific epithet georgianus is a reference to the southern State of Georgia, where the type locality is situated.
