Intro to Kingdom Animalia or Aero ot t By n a y 3937 0 Learning Goals 0 Understand 5 key transitions in animal evolution 0 Know what a body cavity is amp how the coelom develops 0 Become familiar with basic animal divisions amp taxonomy I General Features of Animals 0 Heterotrophic Multicellular No cell walls lack rigid cell walls amp are typically more flexible Active Movement move more rapidly amp complexly Diversity of Form Diversity of Habitat I Most occur only in the sea but many occur in freshwater amp land 0 Sexual Reproduction most animals reproduce sexually o Embryonic Development I Zygote first undergoes a series of mitotic divisions that produces a ball of cells blastula O Tissues Basic Challenges Faced 0 Find amp digest food 0 Find a mate amp reproduce 0 Maintain balance with fluids amp salts O Circulate nutrients 0 Remove waste products 0 Kingdom Animalia O Subkingdom Parazoa I Phylum Porifera sponges O Subkingdom Eumetazoa I quotRadiataquot radial symmetry I Clade Bilateria bilateral symmetry III Protostomes III Deuterostomes 0 Evolution of the Animal Body Form o 5 KEY TRANSITIONS I Symmetry D Parazoa Sponges lack definite symmetry DD Eumetazoa have a symmetry defined along an imaginary axis drawn through the animal39s body III 2 Main Types 0 Radial Symmetry 0 Body parts arranged around central axis 0 Can be bisected into 2 equal halves in any 2D plain 0 Will look the same from every angle 00000 Sept 25th Page 1 ltgt Sessile Organisms tend to have radial symmetry 0 Advantages b Awareness of food mates in all directions b No investment in limbs wings etc and how to use them 0 Disadvantages b Limited to food that floats by can39t move gt Can39t escape danger b How to reach your mates b How to disperse offspring 0 Solutions gt Capture prey b Defend yourself gt Rely on external fertilization gt Have a motile larva stage 9 Bilateral Symmetry 0 Body has right amp left halves that are mirror images bottom top etc 0 Only the sagittal plane bisects the animal into 2 equal halves 0 Advantages b Cephalization Sense of organs at one end anterior 9 For humans head is on top 9 More efficient shape for moving through environment Animals tend to become cephalized as they develop a head a brain amp a central nervous system b Evolution of a definite brain area b Motile organs tend to have bilateral symmetry Actively seek out food amp mates Run away from predators Animals in motion have a specific direction 0 Animal awareness becomes concentrated in the direction of motion sense organs are right up front 9 Fig 332 compares Bilateral amp radial I Tissues El Subkingdom Parazoa sponges 9 Lack defined tissues amp organs El Subkingdom Eumetazoa 9 Have distinct amp welldefined tissues 0 Cells have characteristic morphology I Body Cavity Sept 25th Page 2 I Only in eumetazoa El During embryonic development produce 3 Germ Layers 9 Outer ectoderm body coverings amp nervous system 9 Middle mesoderm skeleton amp muscles 9 Inner endoderm digestive organs amp intestines El Body Cavity fluid filled cavity that is isolated from external environment 9 Evolution of efficient organ systems was not possible until there was a cavity for accommodating amp supporting them I 3 Basic Kinds of Body Plans among Bilateria 9 Acoelomates No body cavity 9 Pseudocoelomates Body cavity between mesoderm amp endoderm 9 Coelomates Body cavity entirely within the mesoderm ltgt Referred to as the coelom 9 Fig 333 CI Advantages 9 The body cavity made possible the development of advanced organ systems 9 Coelomates developed a circulatory system to flow nutrients amp remove wastes 9 Closed Circulatory System Blood moves continuously through vessels that are separated from body fluids 9 Open Circulatory System Blood passes from vessels into sinuses mixes with body fluids amp reenters the vessels El Coelom An internal body cavity a fluid filled space that runs throughout the body of higher animals 9 Advantages 0 quotTube in a Tubequot 0 Allows fluid circulation within coelom ltgt Fluids are relatively incompressible so the coelom acts as a hydrostatic skeleton ltgt Digestion can be independent of movement 0 More space for internal organs 0 More space to store gametes I Patterns of Development CI The Basic Bilaterian pattern of development 9 Mitotic cell divisionsceavages of the egg form a hollow ball of cellsBlastula ltgt Blastula indents to form a 2layer thick ball with b Blastopore Opening to outside b Archenteron Primitive body cavity I Segmentation repeated parts throughout the body I The combination of bilateral symmetry and a linear quottube Sept 25th Page 3 in a tubequot body plan opens up a new evolutionary pathway segmentation El Parts of the body can become specialized to perform different functions leading ultimately to the most successful organisms arthropods amp chordates El Advantages 9 Allows redundant organ systems in adults such as occurs in the annelids 9 Allows for more efficient amp flexible movement because each segment can move independently El Segmentation appeared several times in the evolution of animals 0 Bilaterians can be divided into 2 Groups 0 Protostomes1st mouth develop the mouth first or near the blastopore I Anus if present develops either from blastopore or another region of embryo O Deutrostomes 2nd mouth develop the anus first from the blastopore I Mouth develops later from another region of the embryo This split in animal evolution occurred at least 540 million years ago They also differ in 3 other function embryological features I Cleavage pattern of embryonic cells gt El Protostomes Spiral Cleavage El Deutrostomes Radial Cleavage I Developmental fate of cells gt El Protostomes Determinate development cleavage 9 Embryonic cell has a destiny 9 Take one cell gtLoss of all cell tissues that would come from that cell El Deutrostomes Indeterminate development cleavage 9 Embryonic cells can become anything 9 Take one cell away others compensate 0 Can grow a twin from the one cell taken away I Formation of Coelom El Protostomes When the endoderm splits Schizocoely El Deutrostomes When the endoderm pinches off Enterocoely 0 Figure 334 V important 0 Traditional
