• Kingdom Fungi= Zygotic Meiosis ◦ Heterosomes ◦ exoenzymes ◦ absorptive ◦ almost no movement ◦ cell walls with chitin ◦ nonseptate/septate hyphae ◦ mycelium and single celled yeast ◦ a great variety of spores ‣ primary for dispersal ‣ while dispersing they are dormant and very adaptive against human conditions ◦ Phylum Chytridiomycota ‣ aquatic fungi with flagellated zoospores, including parasites of amphibian skin ‣ only fungi with flagellated cells- zoospores • flagella is an ancient characteristic ◦ Phylum Zygomycota ‣ bread molds, sugar molds, and pin fungi ‣ thick walled, dormant zygospores ◦ Phylum Ascomycota ‣ True sac fungi (ascus) ‣ asexual spores (conidia) ‣ sexual spores (ascospores) ◦ Phylum Giomeromycota ‣ arbuscular mycorrhizae ‣ arbuscular- microscopic tree, arms are inside of cell of higher plant ‣ grow in association with plant ◦ Phylum Basidiomycota ‣ mushrooms-edible and toadstools- poisonous ‣ no asexual spores, no gametangia ‣ sexual spores= basidiospore ‣ zygotic meiosis- plasmogamy first- grow the karyotype ◦ Lichens ‣ composite organisms ‣ photobiont= alga cyanobacteria, photosynthesis ‣ mycobiont= fungi, lichen ‣ cructoise, foliose, fructose- branches ◦ Imperfect Fungi ‣ no sexual spores stages known ‣ penicillin- on oranges ‣ black mold, athletes foot • Kingdom Animalia ◦ no cell walls, multicellular ◦ oviparous= egg laying or ovoviviparous=lay eggs after hatching or viviparous= live birth ◦ heterotrophic- process of eating food starts with ingestion and is followed by digestion, which is then follow by eegstion (getting rid of extra) ◦ all animals have risen from a single common ancestor= monophyletic ◦ sexual/asexual reproduction= all GAMETIC MEIOSIS ◦ movement use locomotory structures (appendages: arms, legs, flippers, wings) ◦ sessile animals= no movement; maybe some movement in earlier stages of life ◦ diverse= 40 different phyla ◦ 99% are invertebrate ◦ evolutionary trends ‣ level of organization= all multicellular animals • earliest stages= cellular level of organization; specialized cells don't function as a unit • tissue= cells function at a unit; see division of labor • organ system= tissues are combined ‣ symmetry • in the begining animals lacked symmetry • as animals became more locomotory they became more symmetrical • asymmetrical= no symmetry • radial= can choose any plane to bisect the animal and have equal halves ◦ suited for sessile or weak powers of locomotion • bilateral= high levels of locomotory, one plane that we can bisect the animal and get equal halves ◦ cephalization= the development of a head ◦ Secondary radial symmetry= second time to be radial in a species evolutionary history ‣ radial--->bilateral--->radial again ‣ Body Cavity • acoelomate= lack a body cavity all together • cavity that surrounds the gut or any other internal organs • psuedocoelomate= not solid tissue but fluid filling the space between the body wall and the gut ◦ seen in very small animals because they don't have room for a body cavity anymore ◦ polyphyletic= multiple ancestors • exocoelomate= space is lined with a membrane and allows for greater complexity ◦ membrane that lines body cavity is called= peritoneum ‣ embryological development • separate phyla • starts as zygote • simple gut- only mouth no anus • complete gut- 2 openings • protostome= first mouth • duderosome= second mouth, mouth comes from anus • triploblastic= 3 germ layers • diploblastic= 2 germ layers ‣ Segmentation= metamerism • body segments are fused to produce a body region ( head, thorax, abdomen) • Tagmosis= body regions ‣ Other • feeding structures ◦ lophophore= one developed once in evolutionary history • larval stages ◦ trochophore ◦ Family Tree: ‣ Metazoa (as opposed to protozoa) • Parazoa-sponges • Eumetazoa-animals with true tissues ◦ Radiata ◦ Bilateria ‣ Protosomia • Lophotrochozoa • Ecdysozoa ‣ Deuterostomia- including phylum chordata ◦ Basal Metazoa- a current controversy between phylum Porifera and phylum Ctenophora ‣ Ctenophora sister vs. Porifera- sister hypothesis ‣ sponges are basal vs. ctenophores are basal • evidence shows that ctenophores are the most basal metazoans ‣ Phylum Porifera- sponges • only animals to have cellular level of organization • lack of symmetry • sessile adults • matrix- mesophyll- middle, found between cells and skeletons (with cells and skeleton imbedded) • Mesophyll Cell types: ◦ choanocytes=most important cell type, unique to sponges ‣ often called collar cells- color is not a solid membrane but a folded membrane with microvilli ‣ flagellum that moves water towards the inside of the sponge ‣ filter feeding happens by choanocytes ‣ water flow helps eliminate waste, distribution of gametes, respiratory gases are exchanged (oxygen supply from water come in and carbon dixode with water going out) ◦ archaeocytes ‣ are ameboid in their overall shape ‣ have pseudopods ‣ capable of moving around inside the body of a sponge ‣ picks up food from a choanocyte and takes it to the sponge ‣ secreting the skeleton ◦ porocytes ‣ unique to sponges ‣ holes in the sponge that are individual cells with a shape of a tube ‣ water passes from outside of the sponge to the inside of the sponge ◦ pinacocytes ‣ flat cells that cover surfaces inside and outside of sponges • Mesophyll Skeleton: ◦ Organis fibers ‣ collagen ‣ spongin ◦ Inorganic spicules ‣ calcareous= calcium based ‣ silicious= silicious based, glass like ‣ remain as separate pieces providing support ‣ some fuse together • 3 body types: ◦ Aquiferous systems: trace water flow through structures ◦ Ascon ‣ asconoid ‣ single osculum ‣ choanocytes line spongocoel ‣ simple body type ‣ porocytes form ostia ‣ thin body wall ‣ limit of body size: limited number of choanocytes ‣ the simplest aquiferous systems ‣ water flow: water enters sponge through ostia and is now in the spongocoel and then travels back out again through the osculum ◦ Sycon ‣ single osculum ‣ choanocytes line flagellated chambers ‣ ostia leads to incurrent canals ‣ prosopytes ◦ Leucon ‣ multiple oscula ‣ no spongocoel ‣ incurrent and excurrent canals ‣ prosopytes and apopoytes • 3 classes of sponges ◦ Class: Calcarea ‣ ascon,sycon, leucon ‣ calcareous spicules ‣ all are marine and small ◦ Class: Hexactinellida ‣ hexactines- 6-rayed spicules are made os silicon dioxide ‣ siliceous spicules ‣ deep marine sponges ‣ most of there part become fused as they are formed ‣ have connected cells in glass form ‣ fused layer= syncytium ◦ Class: Demospongiae ‣ 80 % of all sponges are included in this class ‣ all have luecon body types ‣ marine and fresh H2O systems • only fresh water sponges ‣ silicious spicules and/or spongin fibers ‣ lots of variety of shapes in this class • bath sponges: spongin only • boring sponge- Cliona ciliata, archeanocytes each have calcareous shells ◦ bioerosion • Fresh H2O sponges ◦ gemmales- dormancy and dispersal ◦ totipotent= can specialize into other types of cells ◦ only contain archaocytes but through the use of totipotent these cells can specialize into other cell types ◦ Sclerosponges- hard sponges ‣ hard, calcareous, basal skeleton ‣ sclerospongiae (usually combined with Demospongiae) • Organism of the day: ◦ Omyctolagus caniculus- European Rabbit ‣ a vigilant herbivore ‣ how to draw a bunny face • pinna (ae)- better to hear • virbrissae- very sensory, can tell if a holes too small to fit in • philtrum- slit in lip, allows the bunny to move her upper lips like two fingers •
