All with comprehensive Teacher Notes included. Until about a decade ago, it was unclear whether the main longitudinal nerve cord is dorsal or ventral. The pre- dominance of certain kinds of invertebrates today is un- questionable. Look at these two pages and then try these two activities. Euglena probably use this receptor to keep themselves in light which they use for photosynthesis. Colony form is extremely variable, soft or calcified, encrusting to arborescent; body wall lacks muscles; zooids variably modified from basic cylindrical form; zooids usually polymorphic; lophophore circular, epistome and pro- tocoel absent; zooids joined by pores through which cords of tissue extend and join with each funiculus; two orders, Ctenos- tomata and Cheilostomata.

That is, they possess two flagella, one directed anteriorly, the other usually extended posteriorly. This page was last modified on 9 August 2016, at 11:54. Some lithobiomorphs bear large num- bers of unicellular repugnatorial glands on the last four pairs of legs, which they kick in the direction of an enemy—a behavior that throws out sticky droplets of noxious secretions. Agglutinated tests are composed of materials gath- ered from the environment (e.g., sand grains, sponge spicules, diatoms, etc.) that are embedded in a layer of mucopolysaccharide secreted by the cell.

On days 5 & 6 of creation, God created each animal after its own kind. Copious perspiration signals the end of the hot stage, and the temperature drops back to normal within 2 or 3 hours; the entire paroxysm is over within 8 to 12 hours. Polygastry does not occur during this process; instead, the entire bell folds in half, severing the stomach, ring canal, and velum (Figure 8.36). The structure of the blastula dictates to some degree the nature of the process and the form of the resulting embryo, the gastrula.

A peritoneum lines the longitudinal muscles and forms the outer boundary of the coelom. Graduate student Sarah Nienhuis is studying how ocean acidification will affect the growth and feeding rates of these animals. In fact, because of their taxonomic diversity and numerical abundance, it is often said that crustaceans are the “insects of the sea.” We prefer to think of insects as “crustaceans of the land.” Despite the enormous morphological diversity seen among crustaceans (Figures 16.1 to 16.20), they display a suite of fundamental unifying features (Box 16A).

PHYLUM CHORDATEA:THE CHORDATES We are chordates. Land planarians are most abundant in spring and fall. Other specimens of ‘Polyzoa’ and corals from the Torres Strait are represented in the collection of A. Ptychocysts occur only in the ceriantharians and function in forming the unique tube in which these animals reside. The gametes arise from patches of tissue on the gastrodermis of all or only some mesenteries. Chemoreceptors may be specialized for tasks such as general water analysis, humidity detection, sensitivity to pH, prey tracking, mate location, substratum analy- sis, and food recognition.

There are several jars containing multiple specimens in the Museum, and there are a number of reasons why they might be prepared like this.
