To say that cells are generally small is not saying much, however, because even among microscopic cells there is a wide range in size. In marine environments, however, algal supplies may at times be very limited. The presence of mesenchymal muscle cells and gon- oducts in some species, along with certain features of early cleavage, have led some zoologists to suggest a re- lationship between the ctenophores and the flatworms (Platyhelminthes; Chapter 10). Termites (“white ants”) are strictly social insects, usu- ally with three distinct types of individuals, or castes, in a species: workers, soldiers, and reproductives.

Experimental embryology of the Turbel- laria: Present knowledge, open questions, and future trends. The commonest form of asexual reproduction in animals. eyes face forwards to give overlapping fields of view and allow distance to an object to be judged. The actions of the joints are coordinated by information supplied to the central nervous system by proprioceptors in the joints them- selves. The second is the “wandering” spiders that actively hunt or ambush prey without the direct use of silk (although many wrap their victims after capture).

Most of them reproduce sexually (not asexually). They can use their own tissues, such as reproductive tissue, for food when reserves are exhausted. We have adopted terms here that allow the easiest comparison with other taxa.

The sound leaves the cica- da’s body through the metathoracic spiracle. For example, in nematode worms the vas deferens first develops with a closed end; the cell that blocks the end of this tube helps the vas deferens link up to the cloaca. Department of Commerce focus primarily on commercially important fishes, while those from the Geological Survey of the U. As we have seen before, these sorts of characteristics typically evolve in con- cert with some mechanism of internal transport or adaptive modification in shape as solutions to the sur- face-to-volume dilemma.

Today, coastal nations annually harvest millions of tons of molluscs commer- cially for food. Hemichordates and deu- terostome evolution: robust molecular phylogenetic support for a hemichordate+echinoderm clade. These are not morpho-species, but labeled, identified species. Outlines for each unit are provided on the course webpages. Analysis by high-speed photography reveals that the movement of these structures is complex and differs among taxa, and even at different locations on the same organism.

The structure of the blastula dictates to some degree the nature of the process and the form of the resulting embryo, the gastrula. The stomach usual- ly bears one or more ducts that lead to large glandular digestive ceca. Three, six, or seven pairs of metanephridia occur in monoplacophorans, two pairs in the nautiloids, and a single pair in all other molluscs (except where one is lost in advanced gastropods) (see Figure 20.15). About 11 species of thermosbaenaceans are recog- nized in six genera.
