Uniramia

Uniramia Formerly a phylum or a subphylum of Arthropoda, in which the appendages are unbranched (i.e. uniramous) and at one time classed as members of the Mandibulata. The group includes the myriapods (centipedes and millipedes) and the insects, the earliest known fossils being Devonian and resembling modern centipedes and millipedes. The Arthropoda are now held to have evolved only once (they are monophyletic) and the formal and informal use of Uniramia has been abandoned, with its members reallocated to the subphylum Atelocerata.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
