podos = singular, poda = plural
I think no arthopods have a single limb, it is totally useless :lol:

The spelling depends on the english you use. British or American... :)
And about the hemoglobin:
IMMSMR it comes from Heme+Globin. Hemoglobin seems better to me but haemoglobin is also used.

It has it's uses...my teacher always take 1/4th of the marks for that specific question just because of a single spelling mistake :( ...it's a good thing to do because if he doesn't have such strict rules spelling mistakes would be the last thing in my list of worries :lol:
