However, variations on this theme are many, and we may view the different conditions as having been derived from a basic primitive plan that arose with the evolution of the coelo- mate metameric bauplan. What is the difference between Vertebrates and Invertebrates? • Vertebrates have a backbone with a spinal cord, whereas invertebrates do not. • The diversity is exceptionally high among the invertebrates compared to vertebrates. • Vertebrates are always bilaterally symmetrical, while invertebrates could show either bilateral or radial symmetry. • Vertebrates are usually large-bodied and move fast compared to invertebrates. • Vertebrates have a closed blood system, a well-developed brain, either gills or lungs for respiration, and a complex and sophisticated nervous system, whereas those are primitive in invertebrates.

Bilaterally symmetrical (or secondarily asymmet- rical), unsegmented, coelomate protostomes 2. These cells can include pig- mented corpuscles (yellow, orange, green, red), at least some of which contain hemoglobin, and a variety of so- called lymphocytes and leukocytes of uncertain func- tion. In many families of attached bivalves, such as mus- sels and rock scallops, the foot and anterior end are re- duced. Direct fission: An undescribed repro- ductive method in hydromedusae.

Both live in a vast array of habitats, but vertebrates are more capable of adapting to all habitats, including land, air and sea. The second method in distinguishing the two features is by an abrupt narrowing of the body from trunk to body. Studies using plants for indication or remediation of environmental pollution belong in the appropriate environmental category. I believe that the Bible is true, so I believe the scientist who says that dinosaurs lived 6,000 years ago. Together with Harvard’s Ware Collection of Glass Models of Plants, with over 3,200 specimens on display, these restored glass animals now comprise the largest Blaschka collection on display in the world.

Bivalves have no distinct head, and the radula has been lost. Not only do urns effectively cleanse the coelomic fluid, but they also participate in a clotting process when a sipunculan is injured. The larvae develop into mature adults within the human. Cephalopods are active predators that use rapid movements to dart toward their prey, which they capture with several long tentacles. The brachiopods were known, at least from fossils, in the 1600s and were allied with the molluscs.

A new stem craniate from the Ordovician of Morocco, and the search for the sister group of the Craniata. True multiple fission is known in a few groups of cil- iates and typically follows the production of a cyst by the prospective parent. Earlier, we described the construction of the familiar orb web (Figure 19.8). Submarine canyons represent some of the most striking features of the continental slope off the U. Some workers, however, have speculated that the cells of the midgut may function in the excretion of metabolic wastes, and that they may have a structure BLASTOCOELOMATES AND OTHER PHYLA 363 1.

Nematogens consume particulate and molecular nutrients from the host’s urine by phagocytotic and pinocytotic action of their so- matic cells.

Epidermal ultrastructure of Seison nebaliae and Seison annulatus, and a comparison of epidermal structures within the Gnathifera. Distal screening pigments are located in the iris cells, and proximal pigments are often located in the retinular cells and secondary pigment cells. It is thought that the amebas are forced into the nasal pas- sages when the victim dives into the water. The pul- monate slug Testacella uses its toothed radula to prey on earthworms. Peter started full-time employment at the Royal Alberta Museum in 2005 and obtained a BSc with specialization in Animal Biology from the University of Alberta the same year.
