Luminescence is the emission of light without heat. The crystalline cone, produced by four Semper cells, is fundamentally tetrapartite. S. phase of the canal’s construction, became a hero when his mosquito-control efforts allowed for its successful completion by U.

However, at least two recent texts still cling to Manton’s view of arthropod polyphyly (Barnes et al. 2001, The Invertebrates: A Synthesis, Blackwell Science; Margulis et al., 1999, Diversity of Life: The Illustrated Guide to the Five Kingdoms, Jones and Bartlett). 15.35 and 15.36). The lophophore is horseshoe-shaped in the phylactolaemates (except for the primitive Fredericella) and circular in the other two classes; the tentacular epi- dermis is ciliated. They are even found at hydrothermal vents.

In fact, these worms depend almost entirely on the action of the parapodia for walking; polynoids cannot swim. You don’t have to be limited to what you saw in those five minutes.

Trichinella gets into muscles and leaves calcium deposits which effect muscle contraction. Most of the chemoreceptors are specialized cells that bear a receptor process extend- ing through the cuticle (Figure 13.28). Most of the adults are ectoparasites on fishes, although some attach to tur- tles, various amphibians, and even some invertebrates. Nitsche (1869) made a valiant attempt to separate the entoprocts and ecto- procts, and in 1882 Caldwell first put forth the idea of a relationship between the brachiopods, phoronids, and bryozoans.

In the course of their evolution, nonnautiloid ceph- alopods lightened their bodies by abandoning the protec- tion of an external shell, thereby exposing their fleshy parts to predators. An array of "whiskers" and fin spines make catfish immediately recognizable, from the huge Flathead and prevalent Bullheads, to the tiny Madtoms. Internal to the epidermis is a rela- tively thick layer of obliquely striated longitudinal mus- cle arranged in four quadrants.

Giardia intestinalis is a very common intestinal parasite in humans that causes diarrhea, dehydration, and intestinal pain. It had been previously believed to be syncy- tial, and we can forgive Hadzi and company for relying in part on that widespread misconception. Again, these endosymbionts show little structural mod- ification associated with their lifestyles, other than a ten- dency for small body size and reduction in the pharyn- geal jaws.

In many molluscs the stomach wall bears a chitinous gastric shield and a ciliated, ridged sorting area (Figure 20.33). Anterior end bears variable ciliated fields as a corona 5. The body wall muscula- ture consists largely of four quadrants of well devel- oped dorsolateral and ventrolateral longitudinal bands, except for the complex head musculature (Figures 23.2E,F). Today we know that this biota (now sometimes called the “Vendobionta”) actually represents only a portion of the Edia- caran biota, and the entire fauna includes many species now viewed as primitive members of extant phyla. †The largest mass extinctions occurred at the ends of the Protero- zoic era (Ediacaran epoch) and the Ordovician, Devonian, and Permian periods, and in the Early Triassic, Late Triassic, and end- Cretaceous.

However, monoplacophorans are not the only molluscs to express serial replication, or to have repeated organs reminiscent of metamerism (or “pseudometamerism,” as some prefer to call it).

Since I compiled the information here in 1997 and moved my website to its new location, I have not done much in the way of updating the information on the schools or faculty, nor do I plan to actively research this information Since researching information is one of the skills a biologist/zoologist needs, I figure this is a good time to start for those interested in pursuing studies in this area.

Contraction of the heart causes a lowered pressure within the dorsal pericardial body chamber, and blood is thus drawn through the perfora- tions in the membrane and toward the heart. The lumen of the cirrus is continuous with that of the sperm duct, and their junction is fre- quently enlarged as a seminal vesicle. Birds and other natural enemies feed on loopers, but may not provide adequate control at certain times of the year. The outer cells are now called ectoderm, and a double-layered hollow coelogastrula has been formed.
