How to use "Naiadales" in context?
Naiadales is a type of freshwater Malacostraca found in the western Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. They occupy a significant percent of the space within a flowing stream or river but are generally rather sparse. This can be attributed to the fact that they produce large eggs that can take up a significant amount of space. Furthermore, they are primarily nocturnal and remain largely within the cover of aquatic vegetation. Naiadales are a primitive group within the Malacostraca and the definition of their genus and species is still being refined.
