  About the APodA
The Australian Podiatry Association (APodA) is the peak representative body for our profession and boasts a membership of approximately 550 members, or 70% of registered podiatrists in Victoria.
As such, it is the only group which can represent the profession as a whole or act on its behalf.
APodA membership entitles podiatrists to a voice in the organisation which is largely instrumental in the future direction of our profession.

  BATRACHIA - LoveToKnow Article on BATRACHIA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Amphicoelous (bi-concave) vertebrae are found in the Apoda and in some of the Caudata; opisthocoelous (convexo-concave) vertebrae in the higher Caudata and in the lower Ecaudata; whilst the great majority of the Ecaudata have procoelous (concavo-convex) vertebrae.
The skull, in the Apoda, is remarkably solid and compact, and it possesses a postorbital or postfrontal bone (marked 1 in the figure) which does not exist in any of the otherliving batrachians.
In many of the Ecaudata, and in a few of the Caudata and Apoda, the eggs are laid in strings or bands which are twined round aquatic plants or carried by the parent; whilst in other Ecaudata they form large masses which either float on the surface of the water or sink to the bottom.

 Bird of paradise - Wikipedia
Others, such as the Cicinnurus and Parotia species, have highly ritualized mating dances, with Paroia species presenting ballet tutu-like display plumage in a dance that is among the most astounding behaviors of all birds due to its completely accidental, but nonetheless uncanny resemblance to hula and limbo dances.
These specimens had been prepared by native traders by removing their wings and feet, which led to the belief that the birds never landed but were kept permanently aloft by their plumes.
The native societies of New Guinea often use bird of paradise plumes in their dress and rituals, and the plumes were very important in Europe in ladies' millinery in past centuries.

 The Virtual Zoo: Bird of Paradise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The first specimens of this species to reach Europe, in the 16th century, lacked feet, which gave rise to the erroneous belief that the birds spent their entire lives on the wing.
Most of the paradise plumes once used for ornament were obtained from the lesser bird of paradise, which is smaller in size.
The great bird of paradise is classified as Paradisaea apoda, the lesser bird of paradise as Paradisaea minor, the king bird of paradise as Cicinnurus regius, and the "12-wired" bird of paradise as Seleucidis melanoleuca.

Scanning electron microscopy of direct host leaf penetration by urediospore-derived infection structures of Phakospora apoda.
Urediospore-derived infection structures of Phakopsora apoda, a rust fungus on kikuyu grass (Pennisetum clandestinum), penetrate the host leaf directly through the cuticle and not through the stomata.
A urediospore germinates on the leaf to form a short germ tube which is delimited from a terminal appressorium by a septum.

If you know better please tell me. Oh yeah, Anura has been defined as ATDOTMRCA of _Prosalirus_ + living frogs.
I honestly don't know if strict definitions have been applied to Urodela and Caudata, or to Apoda and Gymnophiona.
All recent texts I've seen use the terms Caudata and Gymnophiona - if Urodela and Apoda have been erected for more inclusive clades (e.g.
