There are, of course, many exceptions to these generalizations. Eye structure of Ophryotrocha puerilis (Polychaeta: Dorvilleidae). 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. The mouth in these trappers is lo- cated more or less in the middle of the ring of spines (rather than in the more typical anteroventral position); thus, captured prey are drawn to it by contraction of the trap elements.

The more lateral pair of nerves are the visceral cords (or lateral cords); they serve the mantle and viscera. A kind of viviparity occurs in some species where the embryos are retained within the ovary. His results did not support the Ecdysozoa or Lophotrochozoa hypotheses. The cell membrane is not simply an envelope giving mechanical strength and shape and some protection to the cell, though these functions are important. The larvae of some echinoderms contain dis- tinctive reddish pigment spots that may be involved in photochemical energy-producing reactions (Ryberg 1980).

The combined features of the platyhelminths represent a suite of attributes marking major advancements in the evolution of the Metazoa (Box 10A), al- though some recent work suggests that these animals might have had a coelo- mate ancestry (see later section on phylogeny). At still higher particle concentrations, entrapment mechanisms may become overtaxed or clogged and feeding is inhibited or simply ceases. Students love this fall holiday; take advantage of it!

Coital behavior of the African Tortoise Kinixys erosa by Kenneth Blackwell 9. The adults reside in the intestine of the definitive host and embryos are released with the feces. Rise (eds.), Settlement and Metamorphosis of Marine Invertebrate Larvae. The eggs of terrestrial species bear thick, sculptured shells that resist drying (Figure 15.14).

The many complex structures, such as gills, lungs, digestive systems, muscles, and flight structures, that had to evolve did so without a known mechanism. Some of these worms generate their own feeding currents, whereas others “fish” their tentacles in moving water. Am. and University of Kansas Press, Lawrence. The central cytoplasm branches extensively, and each branch ends in small bulbs composed of a fibrous core surrounded by a region containing most of the cell organelles.

UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS Gas exchange occurs between the environment and the blood across the walls of the gill structures, especial- ly the branchial sacs, all of which are richly supplied with blood from the ventral vessel. In addition to the 70,000 or so described living species is an impressive array of fossil forms, such as the Paleozoic giant water scorpions (eurypterids), some of which were over 2 meters long. The intestine is short and leads to the anus, which is located dorsally near the posterior end of the trunk.

Mi- tochondrial protein phylogeny joins myriapods with chelicerates. In other tardi- grades, a wonderfully curious form of indirect fertilization takes place: the male deposits sperm beneath the cuticle of the female prior to her molt, and fertilization occurs when she later deposits eggs in the shed cuticular cast. The vast majority of polychaetes, however, possess metanephridia that open to the coelom by a ciliated nephrostome. There has also been a trend over the past 30 years to- ward redefining taxa so that they are based strictly upon “positive characters,” or the possession of distinct rec- ognizable features.

In each arm, extensions of the radial nerves form nerve nets as in the jellyfish. A., unpublished manuscript, Washington D. The problem is determining whether the organism is simply responding to the effects of temperature at a general physiological level, or whether discrete ther- moreceptor organs are also involved. It is therefore permissible, although not rec- ommended, for a plant genus and an animal genus to bear the same name (e.g., the name Cannabis is used for both a plant genus and a bird genus). 2.
