Diversity of Animals 1: Introduction to Animals and the Animal Body  Plan    I. Evolution of the Animal Body Plan  A. What features together define all animals?  1. Multicellularity, diploidy, eukaryotic cells, heterotrophy  a) In what group do animal­like single­celled creatures belong  ­Protists  b) Are all protists unicellul​No ­ c) What else is common to all animals?  2. Extracellular matrix (ECM)  a) extra (outside) cellular (cells) matrix (substance within which  something originates, develops, or is contained)  b) made up of proteins and glycoproteins  c) give animal cells and animals structure  d) hard stuff in bond, cartilage, forms soft barriers and filters around  cells, e.g. gut linings  3. Move under their own power sometime in their life cycle  4. All but sponges have muscle cells that can change the shape of the body  by contracting  5. What other traits do you associate with animals?  a) Why do they have them?  b) Do all animals have them?  6. Lophotrochozoans ­ ​ grow incrementally by adding to their skeletal  elements  7. Ecdysozoans ­ ​ a group within the animal kingdom that includes the  arthropods and the nematodes;   a) mouth develops from the first opening to develop in the embryo.  b) Also bilaterally symmetrical  8. Deuterostomes ­ comprised of echinoderms and chordates  a) humans are deuterostomes  b) bilaterally symmetrical (echinoderms like starfish are not bilaterally  symmetrical in adult state but begin as bilaterally symmetrical  embryos)    9. First steps in evolution of animal body plan ­ The Porifera (sponges)  10. Porifera body plan (sponges)  a) Tube organization  b) cells in ECM ­ like fruit in Jello    c) Choanocytes ­​ Cells that move water and absorb food   d) The choanocytes ​regulate H2O movement with flagellum; collect  food particles at flagellum base, absorb directly into the cell.   e) Intracellular digesti­ digest foo​ithiindividual cells; cannot  eat more than a single cell.  B. Biology of the Porifera and Cnidaria  1. Reproduce ​asexually­ branches may pinch off and regenerate  2. Or sexually  most arehermaphrodites­ ​ single individual produces  both male and female gametes.   3. Sperm are produced from modified choanocytes a ​nd released into the  environment  4. Choanocytes of other sponges capture sperm in intracellular capsules,  then transform into migrating amoeboid cells, carry sperm to an egg  5. Zygote gives rise to a swimming larvawith choanocytes on outside for  movement   6. Larva eventually settles, gives rise to mature sponge   7. Cells from a sponge can be completely dissociated, strained through a  filter…  8. And they will re­form into a sponge again in a few weeks  9. What does this mean about the way they are organized?  10. If a tissue is a group of similar cells organized into a functional unit, do  sponges have tissues?   a) Sponges have a cellular organization  C. Porifera are asymmetrical   1. Tubes grow into other tubes ­ can’t bisect them and make two equal  halves.   D. Experiments in symmetry: The Cnidaria  1. Two cell layers; tentacles around mouth that closes    2. Is it symmetrical?  a) Yes!  3. Evolution of symmetry  a) asymmetrical, radial symmetry, bilateral symmetry  4. Radial Symmetry  a) A planethrough the center in any direction will bi the  organism in equal halves  5. Bilateral symmetry ­ only ​ingle plan​will bisect the organism into  equal halves.   a) Only a single plane will bisect the organism into equal halves.   6. Advantages of bilateral symmetry  a) a front and back as well as a top and a bottom ­ one end is a  head. ​ephalization​ trend towards having a head.   (1) Allows concentration of sensory apparatus on one side  (front) of one end (top!)  (2) In most organisms, associated with a central nervous  system (and a brain)  b) Why is this a good thing for mobile animals?   E. The Innovations of the Cnidaria  1. Cells work together in layeissue organization  2. If we dissociated the cells of a cnidarian and left them in a tank?  a) Dissociation causes death  3. Digestion in cavity (extracellular digest​­ what does this mean  about the size of food cnidarians can consume?  a) size of food can be bigger than itself!  4. Do cnidarians have a gut? Where do their waste product go?   a) Waste products go out the same opening; mouth but no anus  5. What are the problems with this?  a) No more food until you dispose of waste  6. The Ctenophora​ ­ the comb jellies   a) superficially like cnidarians  b) sticky tentacles (on some) capture prey  7. One way digestion!​­ mouth AND an anus  F. Cnidaria and Ctenophora  1. Review:  a) radial symmetry symmetry  b) extracellular digestion  c) cnidaria have mouth only, ctenophora have mouth and anus  d) and neither have​oelom  2. Evolution of the coelom  a) What’s the coelom?  (1) body cavity   b) Is it the same thing as a gut?  (1) No  c) Where is the coelom in humans?  (1) Thorax + abdomen  3. Evolution of the body cavity ­ coelom  a) Inhumans ​divided into two ­ thoracic and abdominal cavities   b) In​arthworms, coelom in each segment     4. We will distinguish between 2 types of animals   a) Acoelomate­ ​.g. sponges, cnidaria, flatworms   b) Coelomate­ ​.g. some protostomes and all deuterostomes.  Mesoderm surrounds cavity (coelom) and gut.       5. Why was evolution of a coelom important in animal evolution?  a) Coelom can function as​imple circulatory system.  b) Fluid in a body cavity can help make the body rigid ­ a  hydrostatic skeleton.  c) Organs can function without being deformed by surrounding  muscles   (1) Allows the development of a longer, coiled, gut  6. Groups can be distinguished by e​mbryonic development.   7. Inprotostomes ­ the blastopore gives rise to the mouth.  8. Indeuterostomes ­ blastopore gives rise ​nus​ a
