Some workers (Carle and Ruppert 1983) even sug- gest that the funiculus is homologous to a blood vessel. A field guide to western reptiles and amphibians. The nacreous layer is com- posed of calcareous lamellae layered with thin films of conchin; it has been lost in many archaeogastropods and almost all meso- and neogastropods. The phylum Annelida are the segmented worms and are abundant in all habitats. Under it you might write, “tail absorbed into body.” Use abbreviations like = means equals or is the same as and w/ means with and w/o means without. *Print out this frog lapbook (the assigned pages will be 7, 10-11, 24-27, 30-34 if you don’t want to do them all).

The mastax in trapping forms is often reduced. A few rotifers have adopted symbiotic lifestyles. Investigations on the ecology of Echiurus. Fish Fish Fish stay afloat because they have swim bladders. Macroherbivory in arthropods is best illustrated by certain insects and crustaceans. They sometimes constitute the dominant planktonic herbivores in waters over the continental shelf, reaching densities of many thousands per cubic meter. The leaf, stem, and root are three organs found in most plants.

First pair of legs large and raptor- ial; prothorax elongate and often markedly elaborat- ed; head highly mobile, with very large compound eyes, not covered by pronotum; forewings thickened, hindwings membranous; abdomen 11-segmented; with reduced ovipositor, but complex male genitalia; one pair multiarticulate cerci. Unlike lice, fleas are holometabolous, passing through egg, larval, pupal, and adult stages. These changes in the position of the nerve cords from epidermal to mesenchymal corre- spond to general increases in body complexity and ten- dencies toward specialization.

The periostracum is secreted by the mantle edges, and the inner shell layer by the general mantle surface. There are two basic groups of higher animals. The most important chemoreceptors are probably the hun- dreds of erect, hollow hairs with open tips that are pres- ent on the pedipalps and other areas around the mouth and are most abundant on the tips of limbs that contact the substratum. When it beats, this flagellum spins the cell around, effectively pushing it through the water like a screw.

The individual cells of a Volvox colony are embedded in the gelatinous surface of a hollow sphere that may reach a diameter of 0.5 to 1 mm. Their nervous system is composed of a nerve net and sometimes light-sensitive eyespots at the anterior end. Its body margins are irregular, and it changes shape like an ameba. They are grouped into three distinct categories: herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores.

The cerebral ganglion is often specialized into three regions, typically called the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain. From the hydrorhiza arise hydrocauli, bearing polyps singly or in clusters. Cephalopods don't have spinal chords or spines, so they are invertebrates. It was collected alive during METEOR-cruise 25 for the first time after having been described over 100 years ago (s. below). A distinct separation of peripheral and central nervous systems is found in invertebrates such as worms, insects, and mollusks, like the squid.

Cell lineage and cell fate in crustacean embryos: A comparative approach. A Field Guide to Caribbean Reef Invertebrates. There is strong evidence that parasitic mites have been responsible for the lateral transfer of genetic elements among Drosophila species. The body is covered with patches and tracts of bris- tle-like, cilia-derived ciliary fans, long thought to be tac- tile receptors but more recently shown to be sensors of water-borne vibrations or movements (Figure 23.2D).

To augment the shift from content to process orientation for this course and to encourage active learning, you will participate in student lead discussions on recent thinking on the evolution of the major taxa. By 1830, two names had been coined for these animals—Bryozoa (by the German zoologist Ehrenberg) and Polyzoa (by the Englishman Thomp- son). A few species in the class Demispongiae inhabit fresh waters. (Figure 6.1).

The potential for major changes in body plans due to variations in Hox and other regulatory genes and the downstream genes they affect is just beginning to be realized, but this potential is clearly enormous. Careful study of the phylogeny of the immune system has revealed the evolution of three important components, namely, the macrophage, lymphatic, and hematopoietic systems [ 3 ]. By the Middle Devonian, centipedes, millipedes, mites, amblypygids, opilionids, scorpions, pseudoscorpions, spiders, and hexapods were all well established.
