1) a. Match the following groups with its description: Metazoa  mouth develops first  Deuterostomes true tissues Bilateria multicellularity/tissues Protostomes  bilateral symmetry, triploblastic Eumetazoa anus develops first, then mouth b. Organize the above developments chronologically through evolutionary time by placing them  on the proper number on the tree: Choanoflagella tes 1 (1) 2 5 3 5 Lophotrochozoa 4 5 Ecdysozoa c. Place the phylum from the big 9 on the tree, using the following hints if needed (because it’s  sorta outrageous what they expect us to memorize)…  Sponges (have a lot of POREs) are the most basic.  Although Platyhelminthes, Annelida, and Nematoda are all “worms”, Nematoda are more closely related to Arthropoda, while Platyhelminthes and Annelida are more closely  related to the phylum of animals with a soft body and calcium carbonate shell.  We humans (think about our notochord) develop an anus before our mouth.  In lab, we studied Cnidaria in the same lesson as Porifera.  Echinodermata are deuterostomes. 2. With what group on the above tree did a coelom originate? (Hint: diploblasts cannot have a  coelom)    _______________________ 3. Which of the following is NOT a characteristic of all animals?
