BIOS 1000 The Animal Kingdom Animal Diversity Exam 1 • Level of Organization ◦ Cell ‣ must do everything an organism does: acquire food, move it through the call, turn it into energy, build new material, reproduce, move, communicate ◦ Tissue ‣ muscle tissue- can contract to provide movement ‣ epithelial tissue- faces the environment ‣ nerve tissue- transmits signals ‣ connective tissue- holds things together ◦ Organ ‣ An organism gets larger, these processes become more challenging. ‣ Organs and Organ Systems take on roles that used to be done within the cell. ◦ Organ System ‣ Organs and Organ Systems take on roles that used to be done within the cell. ◦ Individual Vs Colony ‣ What makes individual colony member (coral) different from a unitary individual (humans) • Produced by cloning of 'founder' individual creates genetically identical colony members which may develop different functions as colony grows. • Animal Symmetry ◦ Radial Symmetry ‣ Can be divided into similar halves by multiple planes through an axis ◦ Bilateral Symmetry ‣ Can be divided into similar halves by only one plane ‣ Only one plane produces a mirror image • Classifying Animal Species ◦ Figure 2-12: Page 20: Evolution of life in relation to earth history and oxygen availability ◦ First pre-Cambrian Animals ‣ Earliest fossils • Springgina • Kyclomedusae • Dickinsonia ◦ The Cambrian Explosion ‣ Burgess Shale Fauna (Canada) ‣ Fossils ‣ Burgess Shale Seascape ◦ Classification ‣ A goal of classification is to provide order to the enormous diversity of animals forms. Science of Systematics. ‣ Attempts to classify go back at least to Aristotle ◦ Carolas Linnaeus ‣ Devised hierarchical system of naming species, referring to as Binomial Nomenclature: Genus and Species ‣ Genus name is unique to group ‣ Species name may be used with other unrelated genera (often refers to a person or place) ◦ System of classification ‣ Species, Genus, Family, Order ‣ Kingdom • animal, plant, bacteria ‣ Phylum • defined by distinctive overall body plan such as Chordates or Mollusks ‣ Class • major subdivision of Phylum ‣ Each division can be further subdivided if needed, depending if the number of species in a group ‣ The Phylum Loriciferan, with 8 species, does not need much subdivision compared to the insects, with 1,000,000 species ◦ Relationships Among Animals ‣ Evolutionary Tree (phylogeny) • Can be found for all types of animal species ‣ The tree of life • Bacteria, Archaea, Eukaryotes, Protista ‣ All Organisms started from the same point ◦ Sources of information come from comparative biology ‣ Comparative Anatomy ‣ Comparative Physiology ‣ Comparative Biochemistry • Molecular Biology (molecular Genetics) ◦ Major subdivisions of the animal Kingdom ‣ Parazoa ('Near' Animals, include sponges) ‣ Eumetazoa ('True' Animals) • Radial symmetry • Bilateral symmetry (most animals • Ecology basics ◦ Ecology can be studied at many different levels ‣ Organism ‣ Population ‣ Community ‣ Ecosystem ‣ Biosphere • Populations ◦ Population- A reproductively interactive group of animals of a single species ◦ population and evolution ‣ Two populations must be reproductively isolated from one another for a new species to be created. ‣ Example: Arizona "Sky Islands" • Very tall mountains separated by desert • Cool neat mountain top, hot at base • During ice age, region as cool. As ice retreated, region warmed, and many species distribution moved higher up the mountain • Eventually, different populations became isolated by hot desert between mountains ◦ Animal Organization ‣ Unitary- Genetically distinct individuals, its sexual reproduction ‣ Colonial- Colonies of genetically identical individuals. Reproduce primarily by cloning, but have sexual stage at some point in life cycle. ‣ A clone is an exact genetic duplicate ◦ Why sexual reproduction? ‣ Promotes genetic variation • Great in the long run ‣ Without genetic variation, the chances of adapting to environmental change is reduced ‣ Thus, species that reproduce asexually still have a sexual phase ◦ There at many variations on these two basic forms of reproduction ◦ Parthenogenesis ‣ Asexual (clonal) reproduction by females in absence of males ‣ Allows for rapid population growth - no need to find a mate ◦ Hermaphrodite ‣ Both male and female organs in one individual ‣ Seen in jellyfish, flatworms, snails, fish, and many other ◦ Simultaneous ‣ Animal has both male and female organs ‣ Flatworms, earthworms, many snails ◦ Sequential • Animal alternate between male and female • common in wrasses (type of saltwater fish) ◦ Sexual Parasites ‣ Male becomes parasitic on female ‣ Example: Anglerfish • Tiny male bites, then fuses with female ◦ Population Growth ‣ Two basic strategies • (with many variations) ‣ Exponential growth- numbers increase more rapidly ‣ K- and r- selection • Describes two basic strategies for population growth • K- selection- Species tend to maintain maximum stable population level • r- selection- Species tend to maintain maximum growth rate • There are tradeoffs with either strategy (you can't design a perfect animal) • Community ◦ Communities ‣ Consists of the organisms that interact with each other within a defined area ‣ Members of communities are determined mainly by competition and predation • Competition ◦ For space among barnacles • Predation ◦ Drives the design of the animals ◦ Food Web ‣ The terms "food web" and "food chain" describes 'who eats who' in a community ‣ Example: • Krill-simple for web • Phytoplankton --> krill --> whales/seals ‣ Energy is loss • At each step in a food chain engird is lost (feeding isn't 100% efficient). So, short food chains tend to have much greater production at the top, the krill chain being a prime example. • Protozoa ‣ Plantae- multicellular, eukaryotic ‣ Animalia- multicellular, eukaryotic ‣ Fungi- multicellular, eukaryotic ‣ Protista- eukaryotic, unicellular, and multicellular ‣ Eubacteria- unicellular, prokaryotic ‣ Archaebacteria- unicellular, prokaryotic ◦ Kingdom Protista ‣ Protozoans • (amebas, ciliates) • Similar to animals, but unicellular ‣ Algae • (diatoms, red algae) • Similar to plants (photosynthesis) ‣ Differ from animals/plants/fungi most importantly in how they reproduce ◦ Algae: Diatoms • silica shell, photosynthetic ‣ Surf-zone diatoms • specialized algal community inhabits thin layer on surface of waves • foam provides surface for diatoms to grow ‣ Diatoms • can form long chains ◦ Brown Algae (kelp) ‣ Move by flowing extensions of the cytoplasm ‣ Amebas ◦ Ciliates ‣ Move by coordinated motion of many short hair-like structures ◦ Dinoflagellates ‣ Move by beating of one or two hair-like flagella ◦ Expansion of HAB problems in the US ‣ Mainly around the coasts • most people around the coasts ‣ Pollution and human waste is fertilizing the problem ◦ Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning Toxins ‣ Saxitoxin is one of about 12 different toxins in Alexandrium ‣ Toxins act on nervous system, are water-soluble so will be flushed out of the body ‣ Diary of Alaskan settler from 1900 recorded the frequent "tingly" sensation of the tongue after eating mussels ◦ Bioaccumulation ‣ Occurs when consumers is either unaffected by toxin, or impaired and preyed upon • Ex: Toxic algae ---> mussels (unaffected) ---> human • Ex: Toxic algae ---> copepods (unaffected) ---> small fish (impaired) ---> larger fish (killed) ◦ Ciguatera ‣ Found in tropical waters ‣ Caused by dinoflagellate ‣ Toxins accumulate in top predators (such as barracuda) ◦ Cyanobacteria blooms also can produce PSP toxins ‣ Occur when nitrogen in limiting • Cyanobacteria use nitrogen gas ‣ More common in freshwater ‣ Blooms occur in western, shallow parts of Lake Erie ◦ Amnesiac Shellfish Poisoning ASP ‣ Can produce lesions in brain and cause permanent short term memory loss ◦ Brown Tide ‣ First appeared in 1985 in Long Island, NY ‣ Caused by small, open ocean species ‣ Not harmful to humans, but destroys selfish populations • The path to animals ◦ Key its that some protozoan can form colonies, groups of individuals that remain connected ◦ Some individuals become specialized depending on where they are in the colony • Choanoflagellates ◦ Stalked colony ◦ Individuals embedded in gentinous mass ◦ (Note body) • Angel Chains ◦ Algal cells can remain attached and form long chains ◦ Feature that distinguished colony from simple chain of cells is specialization ◦ Some cells in colony can specialize for particular task • Hypothetical metazoan • Trichoplax ◦ Discovered in 1880's on the glass walls of an aquarium, little is know about them ◦ They are early seen in their natural habitat ◦ Contain only a few thousand cells, and only four types of cells ◦ The lease DNA of any animal ◦ Simple or Simplified? ‣ Is Trichoplax a simple animal ancestral to multi-celled animals or has it lost complexity? ‣ Many of the simplest animals are parasitic, and are related to more complex animals like flatworms • Major Subdivisions of the Animal Kingdom ◦ 'Near' animals ‣ Protozoans ‣ Include sponges, as well as Tricoplax ◦ 'True' Animals ‣ Eumetazoans • The Animal Kingdom: Metazoan • Sponges ◦ Same species, different shape ◦ No symmetry is present ◦ A sponge is a loose association of cells ◦ Body form affected by environmental conditions: current speed and direction, temperature and food (affect growth rate), adjacent structures • How do sponges work ◦ By pumping water through their body ◦ Flagellated cells inside the sponges create currents ◦ Those cells and others capture small particles of food from the water • Smallest Sponges ◦ A simple tube design ◦ Design does work when the sponges get larger ◦ A simple wall with large size would create stagnant zone in the middle, so the design only reaches about 1mm in size • Largest Sponges ◦ Laced with canals ◦ Chambers with flagellated cells • Spicules ◦ Skeletal elements of a sponge • Spongin ◦ Skeletal material ◦ (Bath sponge) • Why sponges are important ◦ Water clarity ‣ Sponges filter an enormous amount of water ◦ Pharmaceuticals- sponges produce chemicals that deter predators and organisms that might try to grow over them ‣ The chemicals are also used to stop predators from eating them ◦ These chemicals are being investigated for their value as drugs • Sponges as bioremediation tools ◦ A simple sponge can filter 100's of gallons of water per day ◦ Can remove about 75% of bacteria in that water ◦ May be useful in bioremediation of sewage effluent, runoff, aquaculture systems • Glass Sponges ◦ Often found on coral reefs and in the deep ocean • Giant Barrel Sponge ◦ Can grow to 6' in diameter and live 1000's of years • Predatory Sponges ◦ A few predatory species have been found ◦ Capture tiny prey with hooked spicules, then grow over it • Boring Sponges ◦ Bioerosion by boring demosponges ◦ Have chambers inside • Microciona Prolifera ◦ Redbeard Sponge (example) ◦ Microciona cell reaggregation ◦ Sponge faced though cheesecloth ◦ Sponge cells group back together • Communication ◦ Key feature of the evolution of early animals is cell to cell communication ◦ A sponge cell can recognize that another cell is the same species • Phylum Cnidaria ‣ Stinging Animals ‣ First "true" animals ◦ Cnidarian Novelties ‣ New to the animal kingdom ‣ Radial symmetry- defined form ‣ Nerves- behavior ‣ Muscles- movement ‣ Two tissue layers: Epidermis and Gastrodermis ◦ Body Forms ‣ Polyp • Typically attaches to a surface ‣ Medusae ◦ Muscles ‣ Muscles are extensions of epithelial (skin) cells ◦ Nerve Net ‣ A net of nerves that cover the body ‣ Thick around the mouth ‣ Very useful b/c they don't have a brain ◦ Cnidocytes ‣ On stimulation cnidocyte swells, forcing lid to open, releasing barbed tread ‣ Discharge= 3ms, an acceleration of 40,000 g ‣ The image is a sequence showing cnidocyte contacting and penetrating skin of prey ◦ Reproduction ‣ May be clonal by budding of polyp stage • Genetically identical to parent ‣ Also have sexual phase with egg and sperm producing larvae that grows into polyp • Three main groups of Cnidarians ◦ Hydrozoans • Exhibit both polyp and medusa forms • Budding of polyp leads to asexual reproduction (cloning) • Budding of medusa leads to sexual reproduction • Budding polyps and medusa remain attached to form colonies • Note that digestive systems of colony members are interconnected ‣ Zooids • Are individual colony members with specialized role ◦ Feeding Zooids- more common type ◦ Defensive Zooid- tentacle armed with cnidocytes, no mouth ◦ Reproductive Zooid- No mouth ◦ Swimming bells and floats ‣ Hydroid Colony • Siphonophores- colonial hydrozoans • Colonies are made up of highly specialized Zooids • Some species can grow over 100' long (deep sea) • Portuguese Man-O-War ◦ Jelly Fish • Food captured with tentacles and oral arms, carried to mouth • Digested in stomach, then carried to rest of body by narrow canals • Have both medusae and polyp stages ‣ Box Jellies • Jellyfish with four sides • Rapid swimmers, active at night • Includes potentially lethal Sea Wasps • Have numerous eyes, some capable of forming image ‣ Jellyfish in the news • Jellyfish populations have been exploding in recent years • Japan has been plagued by giant Nomura jellyfish that can weigh over 400 pounds • Population explosions ◦ Crowding fishing nets in Japan • Jelly fish stop he beaches ‣ Why the population explosions? • Do warmer water promote fast growth? • Loss of predators? • Loss of competitors for the plankton they feed on? • Uncertain at this point ◦ Anthozoans • Anemone and corals • Anemones are polyps ‣ Reaction/ Expansion • Retractor muscles can retract tentacles and compress body • Pumping by cilia that line throat reinflates polyp ‣ Corals and relatives • Stony Corals- Are the familiar corals that build coral reefs • Sea Fans- Have hard, branch-like structure • Soft Coals- Have no hard part, fibrous structure • Sea Pens- Are colonial form that anchors in sand ‣ Coral Symbiosis • Many tropical stony corals rely on symbiotic dinoflagellates for food • Symbiosis refers to organisms that are dependent upon one another to survive ‣ Symbiotic dinoflagellates • Live within the tissue of coral polyps • They can be seen by the color they give to the coral ‣ Symbiotic relationship: Benefits • To Dinoflagellates: ◦ Protection from predators ◦ Kept close to sunlight ◦ Receive nitrogen from coral in the form of excretion products • To Coral: ◦ Provides carbohydrates for coral (Many algae exclude excess sugars that they produce from photosynthesis but cannot use do to lack of other nutrients ‣ Coral forms • Corals can be roughly grouped in two categories based on shape ◦ Massive corals ◦ Branching corals ‣ Tradeoffs • Massive corals ◦ Example: Brain corals ◦ Resistant to storm damage, but slow growing. Ca be overgrown by fast- growing species and can be covered by sediment • Branching coral ◦ Example: Staghorn and plate coral ◦ Can grow quickly (r-selected) to outgrow competitors but are easily damaged by storms (although fragments may also start new colonies) ‣ Coral Reefs ◦ Coral reef distribution dependent on temperature due to symbionts and calcium carbonate chemistry ◦ Familiar coral reefs are found in warm, shallow water • Cold-water Reefs ◦ Also form in cold, often very deep water ◦ No symbionts, so slow growing • Warm-water Reefs ◦ Coral islands enclosing a lagoon are referred to as atolls ◦ The way atolls form as the first proposed by Charles Darwin • Atoll Development ◦ Active Volcano ◦ Fringing Reef ◦ Barrier Reef ◦ Atoll ◦ Weight of volcano causes it to sink in ◦ As volcano sinks, the coral reef separates from the volcano ◦ As volcano sinks, reef moves higher ◦ Barrier reef forms as island continues to sink ◦ Reef continues to grow ◦ Barrier Reef ‣ Fringing feel along continents can also become barrier reefs as sea level rose following the ice age\ ◦ Sinking of island forms atoll lagoon ‣ Island below sea level • Coral Treats ◦ 1. Sediment ‣ Land use practices (deforestation, agriculture, coastal development) can increase sediment load ‣ Destruction mangrove swamps loses their filtering role ‣ Coral defense • Surface of corals covered with layer of mucous • Mucous traps sediment • Cilia moves mucous, and sediment, off coral head • Much of the symbiont food goes into producing this mucus ◦ 2. Nutrient Runoff ‣ Excess nutrients can fuel algae growth, overgrowing the corals ◦ 3. Coral Bleaching ‣ Loss of symbiotic dinoflagellates ‣ recovery is possible if bleaching is short term ‣ Causes • In general caused by stress • Pollution has been implicated • Temperature is prime culprit of recent events such as zooxanthella they are expected from coral • In some cases zooxanthellae can rein habit bleached corals polyps ◦ 4. Carbon dioxide increase ‣ CO2 in atmosphere will diffuse into ocean, mire in cold water than warm ‣ IN Water, CO2 forms carbonic acid ‣ High levels can prevent corals from absorbing sufficient calcium carbonate • Comb Jellies ‣ Important predators of zooplankton in ocean ‣ Can grow fast and dominate plankton ‣ Have come rows, plates of fused cilia, for swimming ‣ High densities of Mnemiopsis, a species that invited black sea causing havoc to fisheries ◦ Position on the animal tree ‣ Once grouped with cnidarians because of their resemblance to jellyfish ‣ New genetic evidence indicates that comb jellies may be more ancient, and may have been one of the earliest animal groups to evolve, even before sponges • Flatworm (planaria) ◦ Appear at a critical junction in evolution ◦ Cnidarian Limitations ‣ 1. Muscles are extensions of skin cells, just one layer think ‣ 2. Central chamber has many functions • Digestion, respiration, extension, reproduction ‣ As animals move, one part of the body experiences new environments first ‣ Key consequence of movement is tendency to locate sense and feeding organs near front of animal • Statocyst is sense organ located towards front ◦ Flatworms are mainly predators ◦ Muscles ‣ Consist of longitudinal, latitudinal, and diagonal muscle fibers that gives them great control over body movement ◦ Locomotion ‣ Flatworms secrete packets of condensed mucous that forms a layer of slime ‣ epidermis is covered with cilia, which pushed against mucous to propel animal ◦ Simplest flatworms ‣ The gut is simply a mass of cells that engulfs food ◦ Complex flatworms ‣ Have a true gut with branching chambers ◦ Innovations of flatworms ‣ 1. Appearance of a head ‣ 2. Three true tissue layers • Which allows isolation of interior of the animal ‣ 3. Organ systems • Excretory, digestive, reproductive, and nervous systems ◦ Nervous system ‣ Note concentration of nerves in head ◦ Fission of Planaria ‣ One advantage of the repetition of body parts is each piece contains come organs • Nerve, digestive, reproductive ◦ Parasitic Flatworms ‣ 1. Flukes (trematodes) ‣ 2. Tapeworm (cestodes) ‣ Parasitic forms are highly specialized and often bear little resemblance to free- living forms ◦ Flukes ‣ Parasitic flatworms ‣ Have mouth and digestive tract ‣ Attach with bhooksand suckers ‣ Feed on blood and tissue ‣ Schistosomiasis (blood flukes) affects 200,000,000 people ◦ Tapeworms ‣ Very different from free-living flatworms ‣ No digestive system of mouth ‣ Absorb food directly through skin ‣ Attach with 'scolex', new segments bud off this ‣ Segments contain both male and female organs, and produce 50,000 eggs each ‣ each worm may have 2,000-4,000 segments ‣ Affects > 100,000,000 people worldwide • Roundworms (nematodes) ◦ Simple design, vast numbers of species and individuals ◦ Have cuticle, and molt their exoskeleton ‣ Cuticle is hard outer layer formed by skin ‣ Exoskeleton is external layer supporting muscles ‣ Molt is the shedding of exoskeleton in order to grow ◦ Having a fixed number of cells as adults is common ◦ Internal anatomy ‣ Cuticle is rigid and muscles are longitudinal (lengthwise) only ◦ Body is a pressurized cylinder closed off at mouth and anus by muscles ‣ This creates a hydrostatic skeleton ◦ Parasitic roundworms are common ◦ Types of Roundworms ‣ Roundworms, pinworms, trichinella (trichinosis), and dog heart worms ◦ Nematodes ‣ Important agricultural pets ‣ They can be helpful if they infect other pets ◦ Nematode Diversity ‣ "If all matter on earth except for nematode were to suddenly vanish, the outline of every form, living and non-living, would be visible as a ghostly shadow." ‣ One basic body form, yet number of species may be greater than that
