For slides with questions, just click on your choice. These hy- pothetical ancestral forms are envisioned as having had a simple pharynx and a saclike gut without diverticula (Figure 10.34A,B). At least some of these vessels are thought to be homologous to coelomic cavities. Nimmo, 1890 A cryptozoological classic by John Ashton. These researchers conclude that in slow-moving boreal streams, "beaver dams appear to be major sources of these economically important biting flies."

Barophiles have been found living at all depths in the sea, and one unnamed species from the Mariana Trench has been shown to require at least 500 atmos- pheres of pressure in order to grow. †Heterotrophic organisms are those that consume other organisms or organic materials as food. The suborder Apocrita com- prises the “narrow-waisted” hymenopterans (true wasps, bees, and ants), in which the first and second ab- dominal segments are joined by a distinct and often elongate constriction.

A famous collection of anatomically perfect models of species which were hard to preserve, made by renowned 19th century Czech jewellers. The outer layer of the cuticle is shed, removing the larval fins from the settled juvenile. (Figure 23.17D). The vermiform adult of Conocyema bears a polar cap of four enlarged cells and has a trunk of somatic cells around an inner axial cell; all the cells of the body lack cilia (Figure 7.5A).

Some are filter feeders, others capture and ingest other protists or small invertebrates, many eat algal filaments or di- atoms, some graze on attached bacteria, and a few are saprophytic parasites. Marshall (1992) describes a remarkable defen- sive behavior involving hairs in the tropical burrowing tarantula, Theraphosa leblondi.

As in Lumbricus, the sperm leave the male pores and travel along paired seminal grooves to the spermathecal open- ings of the mate. (F–H) An earthworm forming and releas- ing a cocoon.

Osmoreg- ulatory structures in the form of protonephridia were instrumental in the invasion of fresh water. One or two pairs of circumenteric connectives extend from the cerebral ganglion around the foregut and unite ventrally in the subenteric ganglion. The most dramatic regenerative powers among the polychaetes occur, oddly, in a few forms with highly specialized and heteronomous bodies.

The araeolaimid Plectus parvus possesed four relatively larger coelomocytes with the two pairs located between cardia and anterior ovary (Figure 5 (c)). Some zoologists, however, view these similarities as convergent features resulting from adaptations to pelagic lifestyles.

Locomotion and coelomic pressure in Lumbricus. Bennett, Acute temperature quotient responses of fishes reflect their divergent thermal habitats in the Banda Sea, Sulawesi, Indonesia, Australian Journal of Zoology, 2009, 57, 5, 357 E. There are really only three kinds of evolutionary similarity expressed among organisms: (1) shared evolutionary novelties in- herited from an immediate common ancestor; (2) similar- ity inherited from some more remote ancestor (any num- ber of descendant taxa may retain such similarity); and (3) similarity due to evolutionary convergence.

Stoneflies, like mayflies, have experienced consider- able evolutionary radiation of the larval (nymphal) stage. The long tentacles of cydippids (and of the larvae of most other forms) have a muscular core with a colloblast-laden epidermal covering (Figure 9.5). Every fourth segment is dark- ened for reference.

Although Darwin titled his book On the Origin of Species, he dealt primarily with the mainte- nance of adaptations.
