In some groups the heart is replaced or supplemented by acces- sory pumping structures derived from muscular vessels. An esophagus extends aborally, through the center of the lantern (when present), and then joins an elongate intestine (Figure 22.11A,B,D). The nuclei have one or two dark-staining nucleoli whereas the nematocysts are translucent with a central coiled thread. Optical design and evolutionary adaptation in crustacean compound eyes. Notice the change in body to limb tip distance during the power stroke. (C,D) Ventral views of a walking limb, illustrating the range of anteri- or–posterior (promotor–remotor) and adductor–abduc- tor movements. (C) Rotational movement at coxa–body junction to swing limb forward and backward. (D) Extension and flexion of a walking limb with resultant abduction and adduction of the limb tip relative to the body. (A) (B) (C) (D) and depressors, respectively; the muscles in the proxi- mal leg joints usually serve these purposes.

This trash was especially common in the Cretean Sea which is surrounded by islands and crossed by a number of shipping routes. In Caenorhabditis elegans, they are small rounded cells with small yet discernible nuclei (Figures 3 (a), 3 (b), and 3 (g)). Reversible metamorphosis in coral planula lar- vae. Thus formed, hiber- nation of the gemmule commences, while the parent sponge usually dies and disintegrates. A clam has two shells joined together by a hinge.

Some variations of the basic ctenophoran body plan are illustrated in Figures 9.1 and 9.2. In all aplacophorans the gonads dis- charge gametes by way of short gonopericardial ducts into the pericardial chamber, from which they pass to gametoducts to the mantle cavity and surrounding sea water. Manning became Chairman of the Department, to be succeeded by David L. We will research collecting tips on how to find, catch, and preserve your insects. AU: Sentence OK?

They are spectacular, abundant and diverse. The new, glass Whale Hall, seen here on the right in the architect’s drawing, will form a spectacular two storey high entrance to the Museum and Department of Zoology. Media mail takes approximately one week once mailed, but may take longer during the holiday season or for Alaska and Hawaii. This organ consists of two rings of ciliated epithe- lial cells and may be involved in chemoreception, or per- haps sperm transfer.

Cephalopods produce large, yolky, telolecithal eggs. Most TEENs love animals, so it is natural that they may want to do a science fair project focused on them. We have learned so much and enjoyed every second of it. Nature 399: 772–776. [See criticism by M. The event that transpires depends not on the contraction of the circular muscles of the contracting end, but on the state of contraction of the longitudinal and circular muscles in other parts of the body (Figure 3.8).
