These actions, plus reversible ciliary beating, fa- cilitate twisting, turning, and crawling among sand grains, and allow limited swimming in some species. These regions are sometimes re- ferred to as hearts, but most are more appropriately called contractile vessels. Many eulamellibranch bivalves live buried in soft sediments, where long siphons are utilized to maintain contact with the overlying water (Figures 20.8A and 20.20).

Macroherbivory in arthropods is best illustrated by certain insects and crustaceans. In some species the podia of the bivium (the “dorsal” or upper surface) are reduced or lost, and in the apodaceans all of the tube feet are greatly reduced or absent. The six oblong celomocytes residing as 3 pairs (ventral anterior, ventral posterior, and dorsal) in the pseudocoelomic cavity adjacent to the somatic musculature of the hermaphrodite, are derived from two parts of the mesodermal lineage. Infections of L. mexi- cana cause a cutaneous disease called chiclero ulcer, because it is so common in “chicleros,” men who harvest the gum of chicle trees.

As expected, brooding species pro- duce fewer but larger and yolkier eggs than do their free-spawning counterparts. On the anatomy and relationships of recent Monoplacophora. The larvae bore through the gut wall of the inter- mediate host, where they undergo further development to the infective stage.

The tegument is underlain by a basement mem- brane, beneath which is the mesenchyme. As indicated in the classification above, the organization of these mus- cles varies among taxa and may occur in either a two- or three-layered plan (Figure 11.3). Unique to the ectoplasm of phaeodarians are balls of waste products called phaeodium, after which this group was named. There are about 60 species of palpigrades, all of which are less than 3 mm long. Any help in this query will be greatly appreciated.

However, today Giant Pandas and many other species of bears have sharp teeth (similar to large meat eating cats like lions), and they are vegetarian. The Nematoda or roundworms, are perhaps the second largest animal phylum, and are also invertebrates. Schmidt, “Hemolin: an insect-immune protein belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily,” Science, vol. 250, no. 4988, pp. 1729–1732, 1990. The flame bulbs drain to pairs of dorsolateral and ventrolateral nephridioducts that run the length of the body (Figure 10.17).

The bodies of most copepods are distinctly divided into three tagmata, the names of which vary among authors. The ventral nerve cord per- sists in the opisthosoma of xiphosurans and has five segmental ganglia; in scorpions it has seven ganglia (Figures 19.17, 19.19). Given the large number of interacting factors to be considered, these are very complex questions, and our understanding is still incomplete. Molecular developmental biology has also begun to unravel the origins of arthropod appendages them- selves.

Certain structures are visualized through the mantle skirt: ctenidium, eye, anus, and epipodial tentacles. These statocysts may be closed or open to the exterior, and the statolith may be a secreted structure or formed of extrinsic material, such as sand grains. Gregarines undergo a variety of mitoses, depending on the species. Phylogenetic methods come of age: Testing hypotheses in an evolutionary context. Male squids often seize their female partner with the tentacles, and the two swim head-to-head through the water.

By the time, the 5th and 6th coelomocytes aligned themselves closely to seam cells 6 and their progeny; some were attached with or penetrated the nurse cells at the level of the vacuole. In addition, the early ontogeny of some echinoderms has served as a model of deuterostome development against which many other developmental patterns are measured. Nonstoloniferous col- onies may be encrusting, arborescent, discoidal, and so on (Figure 21.6), but in all cases, the zooids are compact- ed and adjacent to one another, rather than arising sepa- rately and at some distance from one another. 10 CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE Figure 21.5 Ectoprocts.

At the base of the cytopharynx, food is enclosed in food vacuoles by endocytosis. Order Orthoptera. 13,000 described species. Schemes B and C are phylogenetic systematic classifications. Interestingly, hemoglobin is not restricted to the Metazoa; it is also produced by some protists, certain fungi, and in the root nodules of leguminous plants. Only the first pair of appendages, the multi- articulate antennae, was preoral in adults.
