Bio Test 3

Kingdom Animal

General Characteristics

Multicalular heterotrophes

all can move under thier own power at some point in thier life cycleGametic Meiosis for Reproductin

Development post Fertilization

Zygote--->Morula--->blastula--blastopore-> Gastrula


Single Cell


Solid ball


Hollow Ball


Forms either the mouth or Anus. If the anus is first then you get a mouth, if the mouth is formed first then there is NO anus



No symmetry

no tissues or organs

Sponges only


Multicellularhave symmetrytissues and organs

During Early Development Eumetazoans have three tissue layers





Middle layer


Outer layer

4 basic body designs of Eumetazoans

1. Symmetry2. Body cavity3. Segmentation4. Developmental

1. symmetry



Body is designed around a central axis no head, front or back (Jellyfish)


Front, back, top, bottom

Head brain


This favors organs in the head region to first contact environment and the development of a brain that can react to the sensory input.Paired sensory organs - hearing vision smellProvide orientation in a 3-D world

2. Body Cavity- found in bilateral organisms

AdvantageBetter digestion- -differentiation of the system-room to hold foods so you can feed when it is safe and/or when food is abundant
Reproductionroom for large numbers of gametes (egg/sperm)Room to hold fertilized eggs until release during favorable conditions, better survival

Types of cavitys



Incomplete gut - mouth but no anus


Complete gut - mouth and anus


Pseudocoelomic (gut) forms between the Mess and Endoderm


Forms within the mesodermthis allows physical contact of all tissue layers resulting in more complex organ systems-digestion-circulation


a complex, differentiated system with areas for storage, absorption, an elimination


the first heart and circulatory systemA transport systemopen and closed

open circulation system

Blood does not return directly to heart

Closed circulation system

Blood does return directly to the heartmore efficent

3. Segmentation

All coelomic organisms except molluscs are segmented

Advantages of segmentation

a. Coordination of the segments allows efficent movement

b. redundancy of organs in each segment. if one is damaged the others can compensate

c. more complex nervous system to control a. and b.

d. Fusing of segments to form highly specialized structures for feeding, sensory, locomotion.

4. Developmental

Coelomic organisms only


Blastopore forms the mouth firstduring development each cell does not have a full set of genetic instructionsif one is damaged the organism may not survive


blastopore forms the anus first each cell has a full set of genetic instructionsif a cell is lost the others compensate


Spongesparazoansmost are marine organismssimple organisms that simply filter water nutrient from the waterhave intracellular digestion. each cell must absorb and digest its own nutrientno storage capacity for food


Jellyfish, sea anemones and coralradial symmetryhave Gastro Vascular Cavity (GVC)have extracellular digestion - food is digested in the GVCAll Cnidarians have nematocysts

Gastro Vascular Cavity GVC

a simple sac with one opening can hold food or a large organism has a large storage capacity


stinging cells that have a trigger that fires when touchedcan produce powerful toxinsallow feeding on and protection from advanced organisms like fish

Bilateral SymmetryHead brain CephalizationExcretion - Flame cell (throughout Body)Acoelmic organisms- Incomplete gut mouth but no anusGVC- a complex structure spread throughout the body

Phylum: Nematode

Round worms-All are parasites-Bilateral-Pseudocoelomic - complete gut, mouth and anus-Intestine is a simple tube-Excretion Protonephridia-Pseudocoelomic cavity is full of fluid ( the fluid does help with some transport, the fluid filled cavity is the first hydrostatic skleton

Phylum: molluscs

Snails, slugs,clams, osyters,squid,octopi, cuttlefish and nautili

External: some have a shell , others don't, may or may not have a distinct headBilateralFood- specialized structure for feeding or locomotionMantle- forms a chamber that can expell water for feeding, elimination, of waste or jet propulsion
Internal:Coelomic- complex, differentiated digestive systemHeart - open and closed circulation excretion- nephridiaunsegmented

Hole in exoskeleton

Types of arthropods

1. crusteacean2. Arachnid3. insects


Crab, shrimp, lobster, crayfish, pill bugsMandibulates- they have two pair of AntennaeBody - cephalothroax, Abdomen 10 legs 5 pairs 1st pair often forms claws


Spiders, scorpiones, ticksChelicerates - no antennaebody cephalothorax, abdomen8 legs 4 pair


Mandibulates- one pair of antennaeBody-head-thorax-abdomen-6 legs or three pair-many have wings and can fly, the only arthropod that does-demonstrate many different mouth and leg adaptations
Some show social organization - Ants, Bees, Termites

Incomplete metamorphosis

The young and adult look the same except for size

Complete Metamorphosis

Complete change from young to adult

Caterpillar to butterfly

about 90% of insects do this

Phylum Echinoderms

Starfish, Sea unrchins, Sand dollars, Sea cucumbersFiirst to show deutersome developmentfirst to have an endoskeletonDevelopment-young bilateral-adult Radial no head no brain

Phylum: Chordata

Non-vertebrate chordate- no skullVertebrate chordate-skull

General characteristics of ALL chordates

1. notochord2. dorsal hollow nreve cord3. post anal tail


Long soild flexible rod that runs the length of the bodyprovides support and surface area for muscle attachmentthis provides efficent movement

Post anal tail

structure that extends beyond the anus, for balance and locomotion

General characterictics of vertebrate chordates

1. vertebral column of the vertebrae2. distinct head witha skull that surrounds and protects the brain.3. endoskeleton 4. more advanced organsystem- complex and producing regulatory hormones 5. neural crest

Vertebral column

Hollow felxible structure that srrounds and protects the nerve cord.Also provides support and gives muscle attachment


Internal framework for support, protection of organs and muscle attachment

Neural crest

Early developmentstructure found only in vertebrates

Neural crest gives rise to (4)

a. gill arch- this develops later into the first jawb. Sensory system become more sensetive (vision, hearing , touch, smell, sence gravity magnitism, and electromagnetic aurac. schwann cellsd. adrenal gland

Schwann cells

part of the nervous system. they greatly increase the speed of thesignal sent. allow fast responce

Adrenal gland

Produces adrenaline controls the stress responce

fight/flight increase in BP, Heart rate, and respiration

Fish - both cartilage and bony

Circulation single loop system gill ---> heart---> body---> abck to gill
Respiration counter current blood flows one way water in the opposite gives a maxium exchange of gas

Skeleton of cartlage

cartilage is tough, flexible and lightweight

Skeleton of bone

Bone is very strong cartilage and calcium ( tough, flexible and Hard)

Sharks and rays

Must constantly move to respireno swim bladder must swim or they will sink


Can remain stationary to respirehave a swim bladder to give neutral bouyancy they can float
