They play a major role in decomposition and nutrient recycling. His research on microscopic ascidicolous copepods greatly extended biological and taxonomic knowledge, and illuminated evolutionary processes in these extremely complex parasitic crustaceans. UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS Most nematodes are ammonotelic, although some excrete increased amounts of urea when in a hypertonic environment. They are obviously empty, having everted their thread, which can be clearly seen extending away from one end of the empty capsule.

Science fiction/horror/monster movies that show an insect that sees thousands of identical images of the ENTIRE visual field are WRONG -- an insect sees only ONE picture at a time because each ommatidia sees only a small part of the entire field. You should know some facts from your dairy farm tour. In lophophorates, this condition not only prevents fecal ac- cumulation in the encasement, but generally brings the anus close to rejection currents produced by the cilia on the lophophore.

Of the 34 or so major divisions (phyla) of animal life, 33 and 2/3 are "invertebrate". The ventral anterior pair is located on the right side and the ventral posterior pair on the left as observed by Wood et al. [ 54 ] in C. elegans grown at [ 55 ]. Many molluscs gen- erate a single current for both gas exchange and feed- ing. When you think of an animal, you usually think of something like a cat, a dog, a mouse, or a tiger.

The pharynx empties into an esophagus, which in turn opens into a large intestine (midgut), where digestion and absorption take place.

Each region usually contains a coelomic cavity. But where is the information about phylum arthropoda? Varina has a keen interest in the taxonomy, ecology and management of rare and at-risk plant species, and has conducted rare plant surveys both as part of her work and in her spare time. In Chapter 12, we touched on the evolutionary relation- ships of these enigmatic animals. Several poly- chaete groups also make use of the ciliary-mucous feed- ing technique (Figure 3.14C).

Observations on the behavior and feeding mechanisms of the suc- torian Heliophyra erhardi (Reider) Matthes preying on Paramecium. Virtually all suspension-feeding in- vertebrates capture particles from the water at low Reynolds numbers. The forebrain is still small and functions primarily in olfaction. Although most of the trypanosome population is de- stroyed, a few are able to evade the immune system by changing their glycoprotein coat so that the new coat is unrecognizable to the host’s antibodies.

Together, these bacteria and protists ap- pear to have formed diverse communities in shallow marine habitats during the Proterozoic eon. About 70 known species; burrow in muddy sediments and consume microorganisms. (e.g., Chaetoderma, Falcidens, Limifossor, Psilodens, Scutopus) SUBCLASS NEOMENIOMORPHA (=SOLENOGASTRES): Cylindrical or compressed, mantle cavity rudimentary; body wall imbued with calcareous spicules or scales; without cteni- dia or with 1 pair folded (but not bipectinate) ctenidia; with or without radula; hermaphroditic; without a flattened foot, but usually with ventral furrow or “pedal groove” (thought to be homologous to the foot of other molluscs) (Figure 20.2A–F).

Although TEs have been best studied in prokaryotes, they have been found in most organisms that have been examined, in- cluding insects, mammals, flowering plants, sponges, and flatworms. The aim is to elucidate general principles applicable to many different sorts of organisms rather than to concentrate on any particular taxonomic group. In most detorted gastropods the nervous system displays a secondarily derived bilateral symmetry and more or less straight, parallel, visceral nerve cords—a condition known as eu- thyneury (Figure 20.40C).

Small, free-living, marine and fresh water. (e.g., Plagiosto- mum, Urostoma) ORDER PROPLICASTOMATA: Based upon only a few known specimens of a single species, P. jenseni, from 180 m in fortune Bay, Greenland. As in lophophorates, mesocoelic extensions are present in the arms and tentacles of pterobranchs. Includes the soft-shell clams, shipworms, and others: families Pholadidae (piddocks: e.g., Barnea, Chaceia, Martesia, Pholas), Teredinidae (shipworms: e.g., Bankia, Teredo), Corbulidae (e.g., Corbula, Mya).
