We hasten to add that divisions are frequently not synchronous; not all of the cells divide at the same rate. The primary defense mechanisms in sponges are mechanical (skeletal structures) and bio- chemical. The consequences of amphibian population declines to the structure and function of Neotropical stream ecosystems. Today, the only shelled squid we have is the modest pearly nautilus. Most spiders possess four pairs of digestive ceca in the prosoma and frequently additional branched ceca in the opisthosoma (Figure 19.17B,C).

These roots, together called the infraciliature, anchor the cilium and provide additional sup- port for the cell surface (Figure 5.14).

Some macronuclei have internal microtubules that ap- pear to push daughter nuclei apart, but there is never a clear, well organized spindle.

Sulfuric acid in the phaeophyte alga Desmarestia munda deters feeding by the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis. Porocytes are cylindrical, tubelike cells of the pinaco- derm that form the ostia (Figure 6.7C,D). Furthermore, the cone-swinging phase occurs even in the absence of recognizable stimuli and thus may be regarded as a phenomenon of “nor- mal” locomotion. During mitosis, the nucleo- lus remains distinct and no obvious microtubular orga- nizing center is evident.

In Chapter 3 we reviewed the basic mechanics of these two feeding modes. Asexual reproduction takes place by external or internal budding (formation of gemmules) or by disintegration of body into reduction bodies. Distinct bands of dorsoventral muscles are also present, as well as diagonal (oblique) muscles between the circular and longitudinal layers. The Origin of Insect Flight Like the origin of the Hexapoda, the origin of insect flight has been a subject of controversy in recent years.

Other groups possess excretory organs that may represent highly modified nephridia or secondarily derived (“new”) structures. As would be expected, the kinds of sense organs present and the degree of their develop- ment vary greatly among polychaetes with different lifestyles. The giant squid and giant clam are the two largest invertebrates. Brooks/Cole Thompson Learning, Belmont, California. Add a few more drops of alcohol on the opposite side.

Mammals Lesson - This is part 5 of a 5 part hands-on unit on zoology. The enormous variety of limb designs in arthropods has, unfortunately, also driven zoologists to create a plethora of terms to describe them. Some workers delimit the higher taxa on the basis of shell characters alone (e.g., hinge anatomy, position of muscle scars), others rely solely on internal organ anatomy (e.g., ctenidia, stomach), and still others use ecological characters (e.g., feeding meth- ods, adaptations to various habitats).

A new stem craniate from the Ordovician of Morocco, and the search for the sister group of the Craniata. S. segmented; that is, their body is made up of repeating units. The most familiar members of the Parasitiformes are the ticks (families Argasidae and Ixodidae; Figure 19.3F,H). Pearse (eds.), Reproduction of Marine Invertebrates, Vol. 2. On the plus side, Asterias amurensis (the species shown below) is a problematic invasive in Australia (as I wrote here) so maybe there is a silver lining to this?
