Examples of "polysticta"
It was then later, renamed as "Iris farreri" (with Iris polysticta being the synonym).
Steller's eider ("Polysticta stelleri") is in a different genus despite its name.
Ugia polysticta is a species of moth in the Erebidae family. It is found in Madagascar.
Austrochaperina polysticta is a species of frog in the Microhylidae family.
Frullania polysticta is a species of liverwort in the Jubulaceae family. It is found in Portugal and Spain.
Viciria polysticta, is a species of spider of the genus "Viciria". It is endemic to Sri Lanka.
The Steller's eider ("Polysticta stelleri") is a smallish sea duck that breeds along the Arctic coasts of eastern Siberia and Alaska.
In 1981, Brian Mathew (within his book 'The Iris') and separately, Yu Tang Zhao (as part of the Flora of China series), re-classified it as part of "Series Tenuifoliae". It was then renamed "Iris polysticta" (with Iris farreri now a synonym).
The island has been identified by "Alula", the Finnish birding magazine, as “one of the most important breeding bird islands of the Finnish Baltic Sea”. On the island are Steller's eider "(Polysticta stelleri)", the key bird species, and razorbill "(Alca torda)." Other breeding species recorded are: Mute swan "(Cygnus olor)", greylag goose "(Anser anser)", tufted duck "(Aythya fuligula)", gadwall "(Anas strepera)", black guillemot "(Cepphus grylle)", razorbill "(Alca torda)", guillemot "(Uria aalge)", water rail "(Rallus aquaticus)", colonies of gulls "(Larus spp.)", terns "(Sterna spp.)" and the white-tailed eagle "(Haliaeetus albicilla)".
Also, much practical and academic work is being done about the best ways of keeping such bees, multiplying their colonies, and exploring the honey they produce. Among many others, species such as "jandaíra" ("Melipona subnitida") and true "uruçu" ("Melipona scutellaris") in the northeast of the country, "mandaçaia" ("Melipona quadrifasciata") and yellow "uruçu" ("Melipona rufiventris") in the south-southeast, "tiúba" or "jupará" ("Melipona interrupta") and straw-bee ("Scaptotrigona polysticta") in the north and "jataí" ("Tetragonisca angustula") throughout the country are increasingly kept by small, medium, and large producers. Many other species as the Mandaguari ("Scaptotrigona postica"), the Guaraipo ("Melipona bicolor") and the Iraí ("Nannotrigona testaceicornis"), to mention a few, are also reared in smaller scale. Through the cultivation of honey or selling of colonies, keeping stingless bees is an increasingly profitable activity. A single colony of species like mandaçaia and true "uruçu" can be divided up to four times a year, and each of the new colonies obtained this way can be sold for about US$100.
In the western Mojave Desert, human settlement and land development have led to an estimated 16-fold increase in the common raven population over 25 years. Towns, landfills, sewage treatment plants and artificial ponds create sources of food and water for scavenging birds. Ravens also find nesting sites in utility poles and ornamental trees, and are attracted to roadkill on highways. The explosion in the common raven population in the Mojave has raised concerns for the desert tortoise, a threatened species. Common ravens prey upon juvenile tortoises, which have soft shells and move slowly. Despite this, and there being no danger of extinction, the US Congress added ravens to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 in 1971. Plans to control the population have included shooting and trapping birds, as well as contacting landfill operators to ask that they reduce the amount of exposed garbage. A hunting bounty as a method of control was historically used in Finland from the mid-18th century until 1923. Culling has taken place to a limited extent in Alaska, where the population increase in common ravens is threatening the vulnerable Steller's eider ("Polysticta stelleri").
Estonia's sparse population and large areas of forest have allowed stocks of European lynx, wild boar, brown bears, and moose to survive, among other animals. Estonia is thought to have a wolf population of around 200, which is considered slightly above the optimum range of 100 to 200. Estonian birdlife is characterized by rare seabirds like the Steller's eider ("Polysticta stelleri"), lesser white-fronted goose ("Anser erythropus") and black-tailed godwit ("Limosa limosa"), wetland birds like the great snipe ("Gallinago media"), dry open country birds like the corn crake ("Crex crex") and European roller ("Coracias garrulus") and large birds of prey like the greater spotted eagle ("Aquila clanga"). Estonia has five national parks, including Lahemaa National Park on the northern coast as the largest. Soomaa National Park, between Pärnu and Viljandi, is known for its wetlands. Reserves such as Käina Bay Bird Reserve and Matsalu National Park (a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention) are also popular with locals and tourists and support a wide variety of birdlife.
Nunivaarmiut Cup'ig bird skin and feather parkas are "alpacurrlugar" (murre skin and feather parka) made from "Uria aalge" skin with feathers, "cigurat atkut" (guillemot skin and feather parka) made from "Cepphus columba" skin with feathers, "alpacurrlugar" (auklet skin and feather parka) made from the white part of the "Aethia cristatella" skin with feathers, "qilangar" (puffin skin and feather parka) made from "Fratercula corniculata" skin with feathers, "aarraangiarat" (oldsquaw skin and feather parka) made from "Clangula hyemalis" skin with feathers, "metrar" (eider skin and feather parka) made from "Somateria mollissima" skin with feathers, "tengaurtet" (kittiwake skin and feather parka) made from "Rissa tridactyla" skin with feathers (used as camouflage for sliding over the ice to sneak up on game). In the Nunivak, seabirds, particularly murres, nest in numbers, the natives paying annual visits to the nesting grounds to secure skins of puffins, murres and others for clothing. The bird skins most commonly used for clothing were those of the cormorant ("Phalacrocorax pelagicus"), common or Pacific eider ("Somateria mollissima"), king eider ("Somateria mollissima"), Steller's eider ("Polysticta stelleri"), common murre ("Uria aalge"), horned puffin ("Fratercula corniculata"). Cormorant and eider were considered more valuable and gave more prestige to the owner. Bird skin parkas are light and comfortable to wear but tear easily. Such parkas were usually reversible, worn with the feathers next to the body in winter with a cloth garment over the parka to cover the rough, yet fragile, skin side. At night the parka was turned and slept in or used as a blanket with the feathers on the outside. Bird skin parkas were shaped like those made of animal skin, but because of the great thickness of the feathers and the general bulk, they did not have fur strips, beading, and other decoration. Cuffs and bottom borders tended to be plain except on murre parkas. Tufted puffin skins were counted and sold in "knots" or bundles of six. Thirty-four skins were necessary for a man's parka and 28 for a woman's. The common puffin is smaller, so six knots and four extra skins were required for a man's parka, five knots and four extra for a woman's. Puffins are found only along the cliffs near Nash Harbor, and residents of Mekoryuk had to trade for them with those living in the settlement there. Sufficient puffins for a parka could be obtained in exchange for one bearded seal skin. Parkas made of cormorant skins were worn only by women. The skins of these birds are larger than those of murres and puffins. When murre skins were prepared for parka use, they were roughly square in shape and included the breast and the sides. Two narrow black backs were sewn together to form the crown of the hood.
