For example, ectoderm always forms the nervous system and the outer skin and its derivatives; entoderm the main portion of the gut and associated structures; and mesoderm the coelomic lining, the circu- latory system, most of the internal support structures, and the musculature. In this general example, the male has spun a mating thread from an object to the female’s web. You can cut and glue the answers or write them in. Other sorts of myoepithelial cells do occur in some other animals; recall the contractile myocytes of sponges.

We eat things, whether it is plants or other animals. The following discussion describes the structure and function of compound eyes using the crustacean–hexa- pod model (Figure 15.29). The precise nature of these or- gans is not well understood, but they are probably not homologous to the Malpighian tubules of arthropods. To post to CRUST-L, send messages to CRUST-L@VIMS. It lacks anterior–posterior polarity and sym- metry.

The tubule of most types is armed with spines or barbs that aid in penetration of and anchorage in the victim’s flesh. This folding keeps most of the body cells close to the environment.

Embryonic development of the Drosophila brain: Formation of commissural and descending pathways. It lacks anterior–posterior polarity and sym- metry. Then, by hooking in at the front end, and releasing the grip at the back, when they relax back into the short-n-rounded water balloon the front end is anchored while the back end is free to be sucked forward to join it.

Orientation to vibrations in sand by the nocturnal scorpion Paruroctonus mesaensis: Mechanism of target localisation. The upper figure depicts a situation in which the mus- cle cells are well oxygenated, oxygen demand is low, and fluid accumulates in the trachioles. Some other deep-water forms con- struct highly branched burrow systems. The eye is covered by a transparent protective cornea. Each parapodium is an evagi- nation of the body wall and contains a variety of muscles.

The most common reaction to infestation with lice—a condition known as pediculosis, or being lousy—is simple irritation and itching caused by the anticoagulant injected by the par- asite during feeding. As their common name sug- gests, the tapeworms are typically elongate and ribbon- like (Figure 10.4). Background/skills required:Ability to work in both the field and lab. These relatively large (3–5 cm long) nematodes reside and mate in the human gut, and the fertilized eggs are passed with the host’s feces.

Most other molluscs have more well defined ganglia. The solutions that poriferans evolved to problems of survival created a group of animals unlike any other. Biochemical modeling of an autonomously oscillatory circadian clock in Euglena. Other specializations are found in crustacean mus- cle innervation, which differs from that typically seen in other invertebrates, and in certain insect flight muscles that are capable of contracting at frequencies far higher than can be induced by nerve impulses alone.

The surface often bears spines, tubercles, or other sculpturing, and may be developed as a thick- ened casing, or lorica (Figure 12.1E). Please enter a numeric amount greater than 0! The defining cnidarian feature is, of course, their possession of stinging cells, or cnidocytes (Fig 7-8). Some researchers place the chaetognaths near or at the extreme base of the deuterostomes (Shinn, 1994), whereas some 18S rDNA analyses have suggest- ed that the chaetognaths arose separately from deutero- stomes.

Some are herbivores, other are carnivores, and still others are omnivorous. The 4d cell, normally associated solely with endomesoderm in typi- cal protostomes, divides to produce a 4d1 and 4d2 cell in polyclads. Social communi- ties often include distinct castes of queens, haploid males, parthenogenetic females, and individuals with other sex-related specializations, as well as non-repro- ducing worker and soldier forms. Cell wonder throughout the sponge with ameboid movements-->adopt new positions--> change differentiated forms.
