Invertebrates are animals that do not have a vertebral column, which is otherwise known as the backbone or spinal column. Please note: the Department of Invertebrate Zoology has electronic data on less than 33% of our collections and images for even fewer. Were this shown to be true, characters (1) and (2) on the cladogram (Figure 13.40A) would drop down PHYLUM ANNELIDA 439 Clitellata 2 3 1 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 (A) Polychaeta Oligochaeta Hirudinoidea Polychaeta Oligochaeta Hirudinoidea Arthropods (and their kin) Metameric ancestor Coelomate, protostome ancestor (B) Clitellata Figure 13.40 Proposed cladogram (A) and evolutionary tree (B) depicting the evolution of annelids.

Thus the body is first pulled and then pushed forward by each limb. No. 16, Academic Press, London. [A benchmark publication with major papers by most specialists on the subject of cnidarian evolution.] Russell, F. For example, Glycera, a long, sleek worm, burrows rapidly using its large, muscular pro- boscis almost exclusively (Figure 13.14B). Class- level relationships in the phylum Cnidaria: Molecular and mor- phological evidence. Basically, gills are thin-walled process- es, well supplied with blood or other body fluids, that promote diffusion between this fluid and the environ- ment.

The coelom was lost as the main body cavity in conjunction with the formation of the large cloacal chamber through which water passes from the body after pharyngeal filtration. UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS Further specializations of the basic radial body plan can produce nearly any combination of multiradiality. Various phagocytic amebocytes are also present in the circulatory fluids of most of these worms. There is also evidence that the air-filled chambers may be a source of oxygen for the nautilus.

Freshwater Habitats Because bodies of fresh water are so much smaller than the oceans, they are much more readily and drastically influenced by extrinsic environmental factors, and thus are relatively unstable environments (Figure 1.5D). The vestimentiferans differ from other beard worms in possession of an ante- rior first body part, the obturaculum.

A sampling of industries with zoology jobs include the healthcare industry, wildlife rehabilitation centers, aquariums, nonprofits, laboratories, zoos and fisheries. Thus the protopod and the telopod of arthropod appendages are somewhat distinct, each under its own genetic control and each, presumably, free to respond to the whims and processes of evolution.

Under more stable conditions, develop- ment time is shorter and reproduction is less seasonal. A new abyssal hydrothermal verrucomorphan (cirripedia: sessilia): the most primitive living sessile barnacle. Fish are being described at a rate of about 200 per year, amphibians at the rate of about 80 species per year, and reptiles at the rate of about 60 species per year (Eschmeyer, Ferraris, and Hoang 1998; Bauer 1999; Glaw and Kohler 1998; Uetz 2000). I drew a picture of each of the below descriptions. (If you'd like a picture book that shows the classification breakdown of an animal, use one of the books from the Amazing Science series by Laura Salas such as Mammals, Reptiles, etc. which show the classification of each type of animal class.) YOU WILL NEED: Either a book from the Amazing Science series or a drawing of the below descriptions: - Order: Rodentia = has a backbone, nurses its young, and has long, sharp front teeth - Family: Scuridae = has a backbone, nurses its young, has long, sharp front teeth, and has a bushy tail - Genus: Tamiasciurus = has a backbone, nurses its young, has long, sharp front teeth, has a bushy tail, and climbs trees - Species: hudsonicus = has a backbone, nurses its young, has long, sharp front teeth, has a bushy tail, and has brown fur on its back and white fur on its underparts 17) (If you are not limited by time) Read some of "Benny's Animals and How He Put Them in Order."

Because these compounds are of low toxicity, they can be stored and excreted from the body in semisolid form, thus conserving water. Asexual reproduction by transverse binary fission (homothetogenic) 7. Even when animals are seen apparently feeding during the day, when collected the researchers found that these animals inevitably had digestive systems that were completely empty (Hammond 1982b).

These structures may form at nearly any site on the cell surface, as they do in the amebas, or at particular sites associated with some sort of “cell mouth,” or cytostome, as they do in most pro- tists with more or less fixed shapes. Expression of spatially regu- lated genes in the sea urchin embryo. One of my lifetime goals is to publish one paper on every major animal group. Exceptions include amphibians, birds, fish, mammals, marsupials, and reptiles, which are vertebrates with an internal backbone.

In some groups the heart is replaced or supplemented by acces- sory pumping structures derived from muscular vessels. The hind part of the opisthosoma bears the anus and the spinnerets (the latter are situated near the middle of the opisthosoma in the Mesothelae). These should not be confused with the class… ophiuroids which include brittle stars and basket stars. Since then, its clear explanations and ample illustrations have continued to introduce hundreds of thousands of students and general readers around the world to jellyfishes, corals, flatworms, squids, starfishes, spiders, grasshoppers, and the other invertebrates that make up ninety-seven percent of the animal kingdom.
