Externally, the body may be homonomous or may in- clude some regional specialization, such as localized gills or variation in chaetal length (Figure 13.4). Abundant, free-living nematodes live in moist soil and in decomposing organic matter on the bottom of lakes and oceans. ANIMAL ARCHITECTURE AND THE BAUPLAN CONCEPT 89UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS Ford, M. In oceans and lakes they form part of the plankton—an immense array of miniature living organisms that drift in the surface currents.

Although the long antennae may appear to be acting as paddles, they actually collapse against the body an instant prior to the beating of the limbs, thus re- ducing resistance to forward motion. The Molluscan Shell Except for the Aplacophora, all molluscs have solid cal- careous shells (either aragonite or calcite) produced by shell glands in the mantle. If one accepts Hadzi’s syncytial theory or Bütschli’s plakula, then the problem is already solved, since bilaterality would char- acterize the first Metazoa.

Any information on the mechanisms of activating dormant cysts of the brine shrimp Artemia, or other organisms such as rotifers, copepods, cladoceras, insects, and even the plant seeds are much appreciated. In each nephridium, the nephros- tomes—one large and one small—join a curved nephrid- ioduct, which leads to a nephridiopore adjacent to the anus. Colo- nial anthozoans may incorporate bits of sediment and shell fragments onto the column wall for further sup- port.

Sadly, Salinella has not been seen since Frenzel’s original report, and many zoologists now suspect that Frenzel seriously misinterpreted whatever creature he saw. Without your support, many of these specimens will deteriorate in storage.

He is credited as a pioneer in methodical dredging of the Atlantic coast.

We mentioned above the ability of Dodecaceria to regenerate complete individuals from isolated segments; this phenomenon occurs spon- taneously and naturally in these animals as an efficient reproductive strategy. Hence, the slowly evolving genes needed to probe such ancient events had little time to change between the origins of the various phyla, leaving us little trace of animal evolution. Hulse Step 3: Answer the questions on the following Quia using the information from the readings. - http://www.quia.com/quiz/5104540.html Step 4: On a Word document or PowerPoint Presentation, complete an analysis of your animal of choice from the "Life - Challenges of Life" film viewed in class.

Studies of the basic physics of fluid flow. We will have a great deal more to say about these matters throughout this chapter. They expand their research projects to include scientific classification as well as information on the circulation, respiration, skin type, skeletal structure, reproduction, method of movement, nutritional needs and habitat of the animal they are researching. They are found in most wet environments, and include many terrestrial, freshwater, and especially marine species (such as the polychaetes), as well as some which are parasitic or mutualistic.

Echinoderm Phylogeny In spite of a rich fossil record and many decades of work, the origin and subsequent evolution of echino- derms remain highly controversial issues. They possess a highly modified lantern with nonprotractable teeth. Fur- thermore, an additional 20 × 109 tons of particulate organic matter is estimated to occur in the seas, and another 200 × 109 tons of organic carbon (C) may occur in the seas as dissolved organic matter (DOM).

Cilia absent, but some species produce flagellated or ameboid gametes 3. This study of the five classes of vertebrates also parallels Time Line of Life studies, as these classes are presented in the order in which fossil evidence shows that they appeared on Earth. You don’t need to remember all of this information, but you should understand how each level of classification gets more and more specific. In most tunicate species studied, cleavage is radial, holoblastic, and slightly unequal; it leads to the forma- tion of a coeloblastula, which undergoes gastrulation by invagination.

Entwicklungsgeschichte der Thiere: Beobachtung und Reflexion. NGSS Life Science offers many great science lessons. The inner blind end is a coelomic remnant of the nephridium called the sacculus, which leads through a variably coiled duct to the pore. This solution was to bring the “environ- ment” functionally closer to each cell in the body by the use of internal transport and exchange systems with large surface areas.

Then, test your recall of the material through the fill in the blanks format. Check out the annual publication of the Peterson Guide to Colleges and Universities, available in the education section of college and regular bookstores as well as university and college catalogs and some public libraries reference books section. I have ordered all of the texts through the Bay Tree Bookstore on the UCSC campus. There are four fundamental locomotor patterns in protists and Metazoa: ameboid movement, ciliary and flagellar movement, hydrostatic propulsion, and loco- motor limb movement.
