skeleton What are the general functions of the pectoral amp pelvic girdles List the germ layer origins ofthe appendicular skeleton List the replacement endochondral bones amp membranous dermal bones that we studied in the pectoral amp pelvic limbs or girdles 2 Describe the finfold theory of the evolution of vertebrate finslimbs Describe the pattern of Hox gene expression within the fins amp limbs What other evidence supports this idea Describe the functional benefits of paired and median fins with regard to controlling or stabilizing these types of movement roll pitch ampyaw Draw arrows to show the direction of movement produced by roll pitch amp yaw for a fish 3 Compare the position amp arrangement of pterygiophores in Chondrichthyes Actinopterygians amp fossil vs living Sarcopterygians What are the advantages of the derived Actinopterygian design Describe the primitive ampthe derived position of pelvic fins within the Actinopterygii What benefits or improvements were gained in the derived position What change in Hox genes resulted in teleost fin pterygiophore reduction vs what occurs in other vertebrates 4 What evidence supports the homology of the pterygiophores in fossil Sarcopterygians with limb bones in tetrapods What was unusual about the digit number of many early labyrinthodonts We know these early tetrapods weren t on land so how could digits help their locomotion Describe the gradual changes in their front amp hind limb orientation ampjoints to adapt them for life on land More review questions 5 Draw lateral views of a stylized left pectoral girdles in a shark Chondrichthyes b fossil Sarcopterygian rhipidistian basal amniote cynodont amp therian mammal marsupial amp placental Label the location of the glenoid fossa where the humerus articulates with the pectoral girdle When ampwhy does the pectoral girdle become free of the skull How does the pectoral girdle associate with the skeleton then 6 Which vertebrates have reduced coracoid ampIor clavicles What is the benefit of this change How amp why have therian mammals modified the scapula Is the therian coracoid process homologous with the anterior or posterior amniote coracoid 7 Diagram amp label the bony elements that comprise the pelvic girdle of a fossil sarcopterygian rhipidistian amp of an early fossil tetrapod In the tetrapod label the acetabulum socket for the femur What new connection is made in the tetrapod pelvic girdle To which bone of the pelvis is this attachment made 8 Compare the changes in the orientation amp relative sizes of ilium ischium amp pubic bones in the pelvic girdles of an early amniote therapsid amp a mammal What are the benefits ofthe design changes in relation to upright posture 9 Describe the change in position amp design of the long bones from a straddleposture to an upright posture in a mammal What othertaxa have analogous changes in pelvis amp limbs Describe the unique design amp specialized actions of the tibiotarsal
