At very high altitudes natives have blood cell values of !a per cent or more, well in excess of the figure from your test.

But insects do not make good fos- sils, because, as a rule, their small fragile bodies soon de- cay and break down to enrich the soil. Scientists suspect that perhaps a million modern spe- cies exist, brtough only about have been identified. The fossil record goes back more than 250 million years, though fossils of fewer than 120.000 of the ancient i have been found. with numerous species that ar- rived about 280 million years ago, during the cool, dry Perm- ian Period. Fossils from this period inclrxle ancestral stone- flies and mayflies, beetles and weevils, locusts and grasshop- ptrs. We know that a few species arrived even earlier, during the Carboniferous Period, named for the scrawny forests that thrived in vast areas of soggy swampland. Later this vegeta- tion was carbonized to form coal. Most insects of those an- cient times perished and soon s ies i decayed in the mild, moist en- viron But cells in your blood at the time of the measurement. There are .several ways to increase the percentage of cells compared to fluid. One way is loss of body water, from sim- ply not drinking enough fluids over a period of a few days, or excess sweating, or even the result of inactivity, particularly bed rest. A couple of days in bed will raise the percentage of cells several points from wa- ter loss. In other people the number of red cells is increased be- cause of some problem or sit- uation. People living at an al- titude where there is less oxy- vironment. But some speci- j mens fell into stagnant waters, Scientists classify the modern I n'here thcre "'as Ultle- ox- insect world in 25 or 30 orders.
