I've been able to sex lab-reared Clibanarius vitattus juveniles as early as 3 molts after metamorphosis using gonopores. These rela- tionships are poorly understood, but in some cases they appear to be parasitic or commensalistic. May be strictly asexual—neither meiosis nor sexu- al reproduction has been confirmed 8. Hedgpeth, Introduction to Seashore Life, 1962 10 T UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS Within the mesenchyme of most flatworms are discrete excretory/osmoregulatory structures.

The first signs of torsion and coil- ing occur at about the same time during gastropod de- velopment. Distribute flash cards with pictures of animals to small groups of children and have each team race to sort out the invertebrates from the vertebrates. Answering this correctly will earn you some extra points. The body of a beard worm is divided into four regions (Figure 13.38A). In sea pens the rachis is elongated and cylindrical; in sea pan- sies it is flattened and shaped like a large leaf (Figure 8.1K).

Tunicate muscle actin genes: Structure and organization as a gene cluster. Mosquitoes are often a harmless, but annoying faunal group, ruining family outings and lazy afternoons. In the latter phenomenon, the pedal disc spreads, and the anemone simply moves away, leav- ing behind small fragments from the disc, each of which develops into a young sea anemone. Dana from material collected by the United States Exploring Expedition (1836–1842).

These cards will teach your child about classifying all kinds of vertebrates and invertebrates in a fun and exciting way! The posteriorly directed last pair(s) of ab- dominal appendages are usually different from the other pleopods, and are called uropods. One of the most sophisticated communication behav- iors among insects may be the famous honey bee “wag- gle dance.” Each day forager bees leave their colony to locate new food sources (e.g., fresh flower blooms).

The protonephridia lie on each side of the gut as single cells or clusters of cells that lead to long, coiled nephridioducts (Figure 12.10). Star-shaped feeding traces produced by echiuran worms on the deep-sea floor of the Bay of Bengal.

The freshwater snails of eastern North America are well represented in the collection, providing an excellent resource for systematic and ecological studies.

Presum- ably, the sponge matrix provides a rich medium for bac- terial growth, and the host benefits by being able to con- veniently phagocytize the bacteria for food.

Families Micro- cionidae, Raspailiidae and Axinellidae, and their relationships with other families in the orders Poecilosclerida and Axinellida (Porifera: Demospongiae). Reproductive behavior became increasingly complex, and in many cases highly evolved social sys- tems developed. The first dichotomy separates the main echinoderm clade from a now extinct group called the carpoids (Figure 22.19A). Harpacticoids occur in all aquatic environ- ments; encystment is known to occur in at least a few freshwater and marine species.

Such arrangements facilitate the transport from one body area to another of materials that might otherwise be isolated by the mesenteries or peritoneum of the body cavity. There are three principal groups of suspension-feed- ing gastropods: pteropods, certain errant prosobranch snails, and vermetids. Some evidence from Hox genes and mitochrondrial gene order also supports this grouping. Cladistics 9(1): 1-39. [A critical phy- logenetic analyses of protostomes.] Wingstrand, K.

Oysters and mussels cement themselves to surfaces and stay put. Ciliatologists have developed a detailed and complicated terminology for talking about their fa- vorite creatures. Underground, or hypogean, habitats are often aquatic, and these habitats are quickly being destroyed by pollution and groundwater overdraft. Bivalve ctenidia are not cov- ered with a continuous sheet of mucus, as occurs in many other suspension-feeding invertebrates (e.g., gas- tropods, tunicates, amphioxus).

To date he has published over 50 papers on the development and metamorphosis of marine invertebrate animals, including snails, blue mussels, crabs, barnacles, polychaetes, bryozoans, and parasitic flatworms. Growth Rates Little is known regarding growth rates in sponges, but available data suggest that rates vary widely among species. Just posterior to the pharynx, these vessels merge into a single median dor- sal aorta that extends into the region of the caudal fin (Figure 23.18D).
