Predatory behavior of the zebra spider, Salticus sceni- cus. It has been said that at least half the planet’s species are symbionts and that all species have symbiotic partnerships—concepts suggesting that every individual is an ecosystem. Each subject discussed here reflects fundamental principles of animal mechan- ics, physiology, and adaptation. The nature and origin of deuterostomes: Some un- resolved issues.

Molecular phylogeny of the major arthropod groups indicates polyphyly of crustaceans and a new hypothesis of the origin of hexapods. Although modified in the appendicularians, water flows into the mouth and pharynx by way of an incurrent (oral) siphon, passes through the gill slits into a spacious water-filled atrium (cloacal water chamber), and exits through an excurrent (atrial) siphon.

Being heterotrophic is one of the main characteristics of being an animal. The early, presegmental tro- chophore (Figure 13.34A) is characterized by a locomo- tor ciliary band just anterior to the region of the mouth. It also removes their waste products, carbon dioxide to the lungs and the nitrogenous wastes to the kidneys.

Both the buccal tube and the pharynx are derived from a stomodeal in- vagination of ectoderm. This parasite has been implicated in the general collapse of the central California Dungeness crab fishery. 324 CHAPTER ELEVEN Figure 11.3 Representatives of the four orders of nemerteans (cross sections). The lower invertebrates are simple in body organisation and generally smaller in size. In fact, Smith (1971a,b) found that healthy animals were capable of complete regeneration from either the anterior or posterior end (head or tail) given sufficient nutrient reserves and appropriate conditions after injury.

This distinction, however, is sometimes blurred, for there are a number of protists that form complex colonies with some division of labor among different cell types. The class Bivalvia includes clams, oysters, mussels, and scallops. Aquatic forms in- clude planktonic as well as benthic species at all depths. The glands on each side of the body converge to a coelomic sac, from which a long, convo- luted duct arises.

The inner cellular mass is never readily divisible into entoderm and mesoderm; and, because no 4d cell is produced, no “true” entomesoderm forms. Die “Zooxanthellen” von Convoluta convoluta (Turbellaria, Acoela) entstehen aus Diatomen. They usual- ly become negatively phototactic in very strong light. Their fossil record dates back to the Silurian. The giant isopod lives in the ocean at a depth of 200 to 2000m, and scavenge on the ocean floor.

Studies of the effect of chemicals on a physiological function may belong in Toxicology. Millipedes are slow-moving detritivores that spend their time burrowing through soil and litter, consuming plant remains and converting vegetable matter into humus. To post to CRUST-L, send messages to CRUST-L@VIMS. Ciliocincta sabellariae gen. and sp. n., an orthonectid mesozoan from the polychaete Sabellaria cementarium Moore. The research presently going on in my lab considers the following major issues: To what extent do sublethal stresses (e.g., food limitation, exposure to pollutants, delayed metamorphosis, ocean acidification) experienced by larvae affect the fitness of individuals after they metamorphose?

In some crustacean groups, how- ever, the cell lineages and germ layer origins are modi- fied from those of the usual (protostome) spirally cleaving embryo. The polychaete coelom is primitively arranged as lat- erally paired (i.e., right and left) spaces, serially (seg- mentally) arranged within the trunk. He has published numerous research articles on the taxonomy, identification and systematics of different groups of Diptera and aculeate Hymenoptera.

Some alcyonaceans and gorg- onaceans (e.g., Briareum, Parerythropodium) brood their embryos in a mucous coat on the body surface; then the planula larvae escape. My MEIPN instructor suggest three passages of objects over time: large, medium and small. In terms of body construction, rhombozoans and orthonectids are similar only in their basic strategy of relegating reproductive cells to the in- side while maintaining an outer covering of somatic cells that function in nutrition, protection, and locomo- tion.

The comb rows are very sensitive to contact; when a comb row is touched, many species retract it into a groove formed in the jelly-like body. British Museum (Natural History), London. LOPHOPHORATES 13UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS (Figure 21.9A,B). Neurons relay messages by accepting inputs at the dendrite and cell body, passing waves of electrochemical activity down the axon, and releasing chemical neurotransmitters from the axon to the next neuron at the synapse.
