Introduction to Animal Form and Function Levels of Organization: • Cellular - Phylum Porifera (sponges - simplest in terms of animal organization) • Tissue - Cnidoris and Ctenophora • Organ - increase form and function • Organ System - 10 systems ◦ Integumentary ‣ Associated with external protection against injury and water loss ◦ Digestive ‣ Breakdown of molecules, absorption, waste elimination ◦ Nervous ‣ Regulation and coordination of body activities ◦ Muscular/Skeletal ‣ Locomotion, protection, movement of materials through the body ◦ Circulatory ‣ Transport of solutes through the body ◦ Respiratory ‣ Gas exchange ◦ Excretory (Urinary) ‣ Regulation of body fluids and elimination of soluble waste ◦ Endocrine ‣ Hormonal control and activity ◦ Reproductive ‣ Ultimate goal of the reproductive system is production of eggs, gametes, sperm ◦ Immune/Lymphatic ‣ Defense against pathogens Organism Level - structure and function • 4 Basic Tissue Types: ◦ Epithelial Tissue ◦ Connective Tissue ◦ Muscle Tissue ◦ Nervous Tissue Tissues - 4 Major Groups • Epithelial ◦ Sheets of continuous cell that cover or line a surface or cavity ◦ Cells are tightly packed together ◦ Is separated from underlying connective tissue by basal lamina (basement membrane) ◦ Classification: ‣ Number of cell layers • Simple epithelial (1 layer) • Stratified epithelial (2 layers) ‣ Morphology - cells • Squamous cells - sort of flat cells, a little oval shaped, nucleus in the middle; simple or stratified • Cuboidal - nucleus is centered; simple or stratified • Columnar - rectangular cell, nucleus is lower; simple or stratified ◦ Types of Epithelium ‣ Simple squamous epithelium • Single layer of flat cells • Functions: ◦ Exchange of materials ◦ Secretion - where materials are being moved from the out to the inside of the vessel ◦ Absorption - taking something from the inside and moving it to the outside ‣ Simple Cuboidal Epithelium • Single layer of cube shaped cells • Functions: ◦ Absorption ◦ Secretion ‣ Simple Columnar Epithelium • Single layer of rectangular cells • Functions: ◦ Secretion ◦ Absorption ◦ Protection ‣ Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium • "Simple" • Falsely stratified ◦ All of the cells touch the base of a membrane ‣ All cells contact with basal lamina ◦ Cells vary in height 1 cell thickness • Functions: ◦ Secretion ◦ Absorption ◦ Protection ‣ Stratified Squamous Epithelium - multi layered • Outer cells are dead; cytoplasm is replaced by keratin • Functions: ◦ Protection ‣ Stratified Cuboidal/Stratified Columnar • 2-3 layers of cells (thick) • Function ◦ Transport ◦ Barrier ‣ Transitional Epithelium • Stretchable epithelial cells • Connective Tissue ◦ Connect or bind or anchor or support structures ◦ Groups ‣ Loose (areolar) Tissues • Helps hold internal organs in place • Lines the body cavity • Loose fibers arranged together • Very common • It's not dense ‣ Dense Connective Tissue • Fibers are tightly packed together to strength and support body parts • Examples ◦ Tendons ◦ Ligaments ‣ Cartilage • Helps bind structures together to support and for flexibility • Provides cushion so the bones don't rub together • Thick fibers packed tightly together ‣ Bone Tissue • Support and protection ‣ Adipose (fat) • Support, protection, energy storage, insulation ‣ Blood • Transport mechanism, connecting one organ to another by carrying things through, also used for protection because it carries protective cells • Muscle Tissue ◦ Skeletal - "voluntary" ‣ Attached to bone ‣ Movement of the body ‣ Composed of a lot of tightly packed tubules ‣ Consciously controlled ‣ Automatic relaxes ◦ Smooth Muscle - "involuntary" ‣ Consists of layers of tightly packed oval cells • Can be a huge sheet ‣ Found in the walls of cavities, tubes, and orbitals ◦ Cardiac Muscle - pumping of blood ‣ Heart ‣ "Involuntary" ‣ Consists of tubules • Nervous Tissue ◦ Initiates and conducts signals within the body ‣ Smooth muscle is controlled by nervous tissue ◦ Central nervous system = brain + spinal cord ◦ Neurons = nerve cells ‣ Carry signals ‣ Outnumber by neruroglial cells ◦ Neuroglial Cells ‣ Produce maintains, ion balance, and metabolic support in the tissues ‣ Keep the nervous tissue clean ‣ Provide nutrition to neurons • Organs : ◦ Example - stomach ◦ Connective tissue ◦ Smooth Muscle Tissue - ◦ Nervous Tissue - ◦ Epithelial • Organ System - ◦ Structure/Function ‣ Predict or determine Integumentary System • Skin and all the accessory structures • Vertebrates ◦ Skin is the largest organ ◦ Functions ‣ Protection from damage and water loss ‣ Barrier to pathogens ‣ Protection from UV light ‣ Temperature regulation ‣ Sensory receptors • Sense of touch ‣ Limited ion release • Skin - 2 layers ◦ Epidermis - outer; thinner ‣ Stratified and squamous epithelium ‣ Langerhans Cells • Defense cells associated with immunity ‣ Melanocytes • Pigment cells; assist with UV protection ‣ Merkel Cells • Special tactile or touch sensory receptors ‣ Keratinocytes • Produce keratin (causes the cells to harden up) ◦ Dermis - inner, thicker ‣ Highly vascularized • A lot of vessels ‣ Vessels, sensory structures, glands, nerves ‣ Hair (feathers, scales) originates in the dermis ‣ Meisssneris Corpuscles • Associated with the sense of light touch ‣ Pacinian Corpuscles • Associated with deep pressure vibrations ‣ Sweat Glands • Ducts on the outside • Affiliated with temperature regulation by the process of evaporative cooling • 2.5 million • Ion secretion • H2 O secretion ‣ Sebaceous Glands - Sebum • Sebum- softens and lubricates hair and skin • Entire body except llamas and soles • Most enhanced on face, neck, and chest • Secrete sebum ◦ Hypodermis - not part of skin ‣ Under skin ‣ Support for skin ‣ Stores fat adipose tissue) ‣ Insulation ---> holding in heat ‣ Typically females have thicker hypodermis compared to men • Why women's skin is softer Digestive System
