3/22 Kingdom Animalia  No cell walls  Multicellular  Oviparous – egg layers  Ovoviviparous – live birth by way of internal hatching egg (hold eggs until after hatching)  Viviparous – live bearing  Heterotrophic – ingestion  digestion  egestion  Monophyletic – contain only animal-like multicellular organisms  Sexual/asexual reproduction – gametic meiosis (diploid organisms form gametes by meiosis)  Movement—locomotory structures (arms, legs, flippers, wings, etc) o However some are sessile  Diverse! (around 40 phyla)  99% invertebrate  Evolutionary trends: o Level of organization – how developed multicellularity is depends on which animal you’re talking abot  Cellular – within one animal cells are adapted for specialized purposes and don’t function as a unit  Tissue – cells working together and function as a unit  Organ – tissues combined and functioning together for processes (respiration, excretion, reproduction, etc.)  Organ system o Symmetry  Initially, animals lacked symmetry  Related to how locomotion developed in animals  Many of the oldest animals are asymmetrical  Radial symmetry developed to allow organisms to meet the environment equally on all sides; well suited for sessile organisms or organisms with weak locomotion capacilities  Bilateral symmetry developed; associated with condition of having a head and a tail  Cephalization – development of a head  Led to capability of developing sensory structures  Secondary radial symmetry – radial animals evolved from bilateral ancestors who evolved from radial ancestors o Far more complex than the original radial ancestor o Body cavity  Acoelomate – lack a body cavity altogether  Pseudocoelomate  Polyphyletic  Eucoelomate – true coelomate  Between body wall, gut and other interal organs there is a fluid filled space lined with a membrane that holds things in place and allows for greater complexity o Embryological development  Life starts as a zygote  Zygote grows through mitosis – goes to 2 cells stage – go to 4 cell stage – eventually a huge mass of cells making a solid ball of cells called a morula  As divisions continue in the morula there is shape shifting resulting in a shaped organism with a hollow center (blastocoel) called a blastula  Blastula continues to grow into a pacman shape with a single layer of cells surrounding a hollow center (blastocoel) called a gastrula  Hole in the blastula called blastospore – when blastospore is visible the cells becomes a gastrula (gastrulation)  Through further gastrulation two layers of cells develop (germ layers) (2 germ layers = diploblastic)  Ectoderm on outside – develop into outer …. Wall of animal  Endoderm inside – develop into lining of gut of animal  (looks like a neck pillow)  more gastrulation results in a third layer of cells that fills the space between the ectoderm and the endoderm = 3 germ layers (triploblastic)  ectoderm  endoderm  mesoderm – develop into muscles  gastrulation continues = break through to other side = gut with two openings = complete gut  protostome – blastopore becomes mouth (“first mouth”)  deuterostome – second opening becomes the mouth; blastopore becomes the anus o segmentation = metamerism  tagmosis – body regions o other:  feeding structures  lophophore  larval stages  trochophore  Kingdom Animalia = Metazoa (as opposed to protozoa) o Parazoa – sponges (Porifera) o Eumetazoe – animals with true tissures  Radiata (superphylum) – radial symmetry, diploblastic  Bilateria – bilateral symmetry, triploblastic,  Protostomia – blastophore becomes the mouth o Lophotrochozoa – named for feeding structure o Ecdysozoa – named for molting  Deuterostomia – (including phylum Chordata) o Basal metazoa? – a current controversy  Phylum Porifera or phylum Ctenophora?  Ctenophora-sister (DNA evidence) vs Porifera-sister (Morphological evidence) hypotheses  An unsettled debate  Phylum Porifera o Sponges o Cellular level of organization o Lack of symmetry o Sessile adults o Matrix – mesohyl (with cells and skeleton imbedded) o Cell types:  Choanocytes: collar cells (collar of microvilli and single flagellum)  Water is pulled through side of the collar for feeding  Filter feeding and water flow for respiratory gases, excretion, and gamete dispersal  Archaeocytes: have pseudopods and can change in form  Can move around through the mesohyl from choanocaytes to other cells  Food transport from choanocytes to other cells  Secrete mesohyl  Secrete the skeleton  Porocytes – holes in sponges (cells in shape of tube with hole that runs through them)  Water passes from outside of sponge to inside  Pinacocytes – flat cells that cover surfaces inside and outside of sponges  Skeleton: o Organic fibers  Collagen – protein fibers; produced by some archaeocytes; strands woven together make spongin  Spongin – unique to sponges o Inorganic spicules  Calcareous  Silicious  3 body types o aquiferous systems : trace water flow through structures o water enters through the ostia – now in spongocoel – travels back out through osculum o ascon (simple body type); very small  asconoid  single osculum  choanocytes line spongocoel  porocytes form ostia (where water enters the cell) o sycon  syconoid  single osculum  choanocytes line flagellated chambers  ostia lead to incurrent canals  prosopyles o leucon  leuconoid  multiple oscula  no spongocoel  incurrent and excurrent canals  prosopyles and apopyles 3/24  Oryctolagus cuniculus – European rabbit o O. o Leporidae o Lagomorpha o Mammalia o Chordata o Animalia o Eukarya o A vigilant herbivore o How to draw a bunny face  Pinna (-ae) – ears  Vibrissae – whiskers  Philtrum – slit in the lip  3 classes of sponges: o Calcarea  ascon, sicon, and leucon body types (only class with all three)  spicules are calcareous  all are marine  all are small o Hexactinellida – glass sponges  Hexactines – 6 rayed spicules made of silicon dioxide (silecious)  All are deep water marine  Cells and spicules become fused after formation = connected cells  Fused layer of cells = syncytium  Fused layers of spicules  Sycon/leucon intermediate  Shrimp (spongicola) living in sponge o Demospongiae  80% of diversity of sponges  all are leucon  all of the large sponges are in this group  marine + fresh H2O  silicious spicules and/or sponging  variety of shapes  bath sponges – sponging only  boring spone – Cliona celata  archaeoytes etch calcareous shells  bioerosion  fresh water sponges  gemmules – dormancy and dispersal, 3/28 Phylum Ctenophora  Basal metazoan? A new idea  Basal to the animal kingdom  Biradial symmetry  Diploblastic  Ctenes and colloblasts  Many transparent and bioluminescent  Ctenes used in locomotion and feeding  Colloblasts o Adhesive cells on tentacles o Used in prey capture  200+ species  2 classes (with and without tentacles)  Not strong swimmers – carried by tides  Most are planktonic Phylum Radiata – phylum Cnidaria (and Ctenophora?)  Radial symmetry  Diploblastic  2 developmental body forms: polyp and medusa o mouth o hypostome or manubrium o tentacles o body column or bell o attached or unattached – polyp attached, medusa not attached o pedal disc o polyp capable of asexual; sexual only for medusa o thick or thin mesoglea  epidermis, mesoglea, gastrodermis, gastrovascular cavity o epidermis develops from the ectoderm o mesoglea holds the gastrodermis and epidermis together o simple gut – only has one opening that is simultaneously the mouth and the anus o medusa has a much thicker layer of mesoglea  cnidocil – stinging cells; only cnidarians can grow these cells Phylum Cnidaria Class Hydrozoa  hydra, chlorohydra, and others  polyp only or polyp and medusa  medusa is predominant stage  Colonial polyps with polymorphism o Portuguese man-o-war o Blue button o By-the-wind sailor  Man-O-War o Axial polyp (pneumatophore) – hold all the other polyps together o Gastrozooids – feeding polyp o Gonozooids – o Dactylozooids – stinging polyps o Craspedacusta sowerbyi – freshwater jellyfish  Obelia o Colony: colonial polyp stage involves asexual reproduction; medusa buds break free, mature, and complete sexual reproduction o Gastrozooids o Gonozoids: capable of budding o Coenosarc: connects gastrozooids and gonozooids  Hydromedusae has a velum: ring-like structure extending inward from the periphery of the bell; contractile; holds the bell’s shape; aids in locomotion (medusa of class hydrozoa) Class Scyphozoa – true jellyfish  Scyphozoan life cycle: (medusa predominant stage) o Egg and sperm fuse and form zygote o Planula larval stage; develops into polyp (scyphistoma) o Scyphistoma – polyp for feeding; early polyp stage o Strobila – chain of longitudinally produced buds o Ephyra – young medusa o Medusa  Upside down jellyfish – has symbiotic algae living within the manubrium = upside down in shallow waters so light can get is  Thimble jelly  Stalked jelly Class Cubozoa – box jellyfish  Chironex fleckeri – sea wasp Class Anthozoa – anemones and corals  Polyp only (no medusa)  Large polyps with septa dividing gvc  Septal filaments and acontia threads with cnidocytes  Capable of both asexual and sexual reproduction  Much larger polyps than other groups  Fungi asp. o Solitary coral, mushroom coral o Calcareous skeleton – corallite  Soft corals – gorgonians  3/31  Bilateria o Protosomia  Lophotrochozoa  Platyzoa – acoelomate bilateria  Phylum Platyhelminthes – flat worms o Tripoblastic o Acoelomate – without body cavity o Protosome o Organs o Organ systems o “Acoelomate bilateria”  bilateria = bilateral symmetry o flat to minimize distance across mesodermal tissue (tissues surrounding the gut)  bigger worms are flatter o locomotion  gliding in water or mucus trail – cilia on venter and the worm “squiggle” – circular (contractile – make the worms long and thin) and longitudinal (in the body wall) muscles  alternating between these muscles gives worms the ability to squiggle o Digestive system: gastrovascular cavity (usually branched), pharynx sucks in food particles  3 major branches and little branches coming from those  branching allows for better absorption of nutrient (more surface area and less distance to cross mesodermal tissue) o Excretory system (osmoregulation):  Protonephridium (-ia) – flame cells, ducts, nephridiophores  Pump water out  Flame cell – cup shaped cell with cilia that create water movement. Connected to ducts  Ducts – move water from flame cells to nephridiopores  Nephiridiophores – where water exits o Nervous system  Ganglia – clusters of nerve cells  Cords – run down the body and connect nerve cells  Sensory structures – move around environment in response to stimuli  Ocellus – eyespot  Auricles – tiny ears that function like a nose or tongue (chemosensory = smell food and move toward it)  Regeneration – can be chopped up into pieces and pieces grow back into organisms  Totipotent cells – produce any other kind of cell  Neoblast – totipotent cells that aggregate at the wound and form blastema that grows new body parts  Reproductive System: most are monoecious  Female: ovary, oviduct (eggs passed along), genital pore  Male: testis, vas deferens, copulatory structure (penis or serus)  Lophotrochozoans o Named for two common characteristics  Lophophore – a feed structure with tentables for filter feeding  Trochophore – distinct larval stage  P. Platyhelminthes o Class Turbellaria – planarians (free-living) o Class Trematoda – flukes  All parasites  Complex life cycles  Many need 2+ hosts to accomplish transport of different larval stages  Rarely see ocelli or auricles  May not see flame cells  Diagenetic flukes – two host in life cycles  Monogenetic flukes – “fish parasites”  Schistosomes – blood flukes  Ex. Clonorichis sinensis – human liver fluke (3 hosts; 5 larval stages)  Life cycle: o Egg  Go out bile duct and gall bladder to small intestines and exit body into feces  Eggs have to go into water o Miracidium – embryo inside egg hatches to this  Miracidium eaten by aquatic cells = move into other larval stages o Sporocyst – first larval stage in snail  Capable of growing as it eats the cell body and dividing by multiple fission) o Redia – produced by multiple fission o Cercaria free swimming stage looking for host (fish)  Swim to top then drop to bottom repeatedly until fish comes by and they bore through the skin o Metacercaria – larval stage in flesh of skin of fresh water fish which are ingested by human host o Adult o Humans are primary host o Noth sexual and asexual reproduction  Cestoda – tapeworms  Scolex (attachment site for strobili) attached to a strobili (chain of asexual buds)  Microtrich – tiny hairlike foldings for surface area to absorp nutrients through their skin  Scolex has buds for asexual reproduct – produce new proglottids  Gravid proglittids – packages of eggs  All are parasites within the gut of vertebrate hosts  Ex. beef tape worm Taenia saginata ( 2 hosts [human are primary, cows are seconday]; 2 larval stages) o Life cycle: eggs in proglottid, oncosphere, cysticercus, adult (scolex +strobili) o Human with long strobili and scolex attached to gut producing proglottids o Gravid proglottids exit the bodies through feces and get into a cow pasture o Cows eat the gravid proglottids o Eggs hatch in body of cow and develop into oncospheres o Oncospheres have hooks that allow them to bore into the intestine into the bloodstream into the muscle of the cow and develop into cysticerci (can be in hamburger meat) o Cysticerus eaten by human attaches to intestine and begins to produce proglottids
