The paired ventral nerve cords are almost always fused as a single tract in oligo- chaetes, and it usually contains some giant fibers, sim- ilar to those of many polychaetes. Distally, the exosaccal space lies between the outer body wall and a thick layer of atrial dilator mus- cles. The taxon pulse: A general pattern of lineage radia- tion and extinction among carabid beetles. Interzooid cir- culation is facilitated by the confluent coelom in phylac- tolaemates, the cystid pores in stenolaemates, and the funicular cords of most gymnolaemates.

In the xiphosurans (e.g., Limulus), the foregut loops anteriorly to form an esoph- agus, crop, and gizzard, the last of these bearing scle- rotized ridges that grind ingested particles (Figure 19.17A). The jellyfishes integumentary system consists of 60 tentacles in clusters of 15 on each corner of its bell. Hemocyanin, the common respiratory pig- ment in chelicerates, is dissolved in the blood plasma. Note the enlargement of the cibarial dilator muscles, which activate a cibarial sucking pump.

Today we know that this biota (now sometimes called the “Vendobionta”) actually represents only a portion of the Edia- caran biota, and the entire fauna includes many species now viewed as primitive members of extant phyla. †The largest mass extinctions occurred at the ends of the Protero- zoic era (Ediacaran epoch) and the Ordovician, Devonian, and Permian periods, and in the Early Triassic, Late Triassic, and end- Cretaceous.

Aesthetes are a specialized system of photoreceptors unique to the class Polyplacophora. The nervous system of the starfish is very simple...there is no brain and there are not even any ganglia to coordinate movement. First, since we just learned about birds, listen to a bird mimic others. Many also have a circlet of postdorsal gills around the anus that may or may not be homologous to the true ctenidia (Figures 20.1G and 20.7 F,G).

Beneath the cuticle and the body wall are several muscle bands, in- cluding those responsible for retraction of the anterior BLASTOCOELOMATES AND OTHER PHYLA 377 1. Water flow velocity de- creases as the cross-sectional diameter increases; thus, in a sponge, velocities are lowest over the choanoderm. Afew pycnogonids feed on algae, but most are carnivo- rous, many being generalized predators on hydroids, poly- chaetes, nudibranchs, and other small invertebrates. Micronesica 9(2).

If we continue our reasoning from the as- sumption that the first protostome was a wormlike crea- ture with a large body coelom, then it had a body architecture from which the primitive molluscan bau- 878 CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS *There are several scenarios that might explain the present-day sit- uation of the blastopore becoming the mouth in many proto- stomes (and in ctenophores and flatworms) and becoming the anus in most deuterostomes (or closing, with the mouth and anus developing elsewhere).

Volume I maintains the ecological and general biological focus of the previous editions but now expands coverage globally in all chapters, includes more taxonomic groups (e.g., chapters on individual insect orders), and covers additional functional topics such as invasive species, economic impacts, and functional ecology.

Although this advantage must surely be real, does it satisfactorily explain the role of sex in short-term selec- tion (i.e., generation by generation)? Polyplacophorans, or chitons, are oval molluscs that bear eight (occasionally seven) separate articulating shell plates on their backs (Figures 20.1B and 20.4). From the mouth, the esophagus extended forward in the cephalon and then dorsally to meet an enlarged area variably called the stomach or crop.
