Comparative AnatomyConcepts & Premises

Note Set 1

Chapters 1 & 2


Phylogeny

Phylogeny

  • Historical relationship between organisms or lineages

  • Ancestry shown by phylogenetic tree

  • Phylogenetic Systematics- shows relationships from past to present

    • Shows evolutionary relationships

Figure 2.1


Major vertebrate groups

Figure 2.2


Cladistics

Cladistics

  • Method for studying phylogeny

  • Shows ancestry of derived features

Figure 2.3

  • Advanced structures are derived, synapomorphic

  • Primitive structures are not derived, ancestral, symplesiomorphic


Comparative anatomy concepts premises

  • Convergence- organism response to similar environment

    • Similar structures yet distantly related organisms

      • Ex: limbs of fishes and marine mammals

  • Parallelism- structure similarities in closely related organisms

    • Similar morphology due to parallel evolution

      • Ex: Dog and gray wolf skull

Figure 2.4


Paedomorphosis

Paedomorphosis

  • Paedomorphosis- Ontogenetic changes where larval features of ancestor becomes morphological features of descendant

  • Juvenile character stage of ancestor is retained

Figure 2.5 - (Left) larval state salamander with external, feathery gills; (Center) adult salamander that lost gills; (Right) adult axolotl salamander retains juvenile external gills.

Paedomorphosis (cont.)

Figure 2.6: Natural selection pressures on the wolf may have lead to the formation of a new species, the domestic dog. The prehistoric adult dog skull (center) can be compared to the adult wolf skull (left) and particularly the juvenile wolf skull (right).


Paedomorphosis cont1

Paedomorphosis (cont.)

  • Neoteny- delayed rate of somatic development

  • Progenesis- precocious sexual maturation in morphological juvenile

  • Behavioral Paedomorphology- juvenile behavioral stage retained

    • Ex: wolf pup and domestic dog

  • Heterochrony- change in rates of character development during phylogeny


  • Comparative anatomy concepts premises

    • Generalized- structure with broad function

      • Ex: human hand

  • Specialized- structure with restricted function

    • Ex: single digit hand

  • Modification- change from previous state, may be preadaptive

  • Preadaptation- current trait that will be useful in future

    • Ex: binocular vision and thumb


  • Higher vs lower vertebrates

    Higher vs. Lower Vertebrates

    • Amniotes- higher vertebrates with amniotic sac

      • Ex: reptiles, birds, mammals

  • Anamniotes- lower vertebrates without amniotic sac

    • Ex: fish, amphibians

  • Amnion- membrane sac that surrounds embryo

    • Cleidoic egg- amniotic egg with shell


  • Comparative anatomy concepts premises

    • Serial homology- serial repetition of body parts in single organism

      • Ex: Somites

    Figure 2.7: Somite formation in 4 week old embryo.


    Vestigial

    Vestigial

    • Vestigial- phylogenetic remnant that was better developed in ancestor.

      (e.g., human appendix, fruit fly wings,

      python leg spurs)

    Figure 2.8: Ball python spurs.


    Rudimentary

    Rudimentary

    • Phylogenetic sense- structure is fully exploited by a descendant

      • Ex: rudimentary lagena in fish (sac of semicircular canals) develops into organ of Corti in mammals

  • Ontogenetic sense- structure is underdeveloped or not fully developed from embryo to adult

    • Ex: Muellerian tract in females develops into reproductive tract; yet in males, duct is rudimentary

    • Ex: Woffian duct in males develops into sperm duct; yet in females, duct is rudimentary


  • Comparative anatomy concepts premises

    • Adaptive Radiation- diversification of species into different lines through adaptation to new ecological niches

    Figure 2.9: Branching evolution; increased diversity.


    Sea squirt free swimming larva

    Sea Squirt Free Swimming Larva

    Figure 2.10: Larval form of sea squirt.

    Figure 2.11: Lamprey larval structures.

    • Larval stage of sea squirt resembles vertebrate tadpole

      • Developed notochord and dorsal nerve cord

      • Rudimentary brain and sense organs


    Sea squirt sessile adult

    Sea Squirt Sessile Adult

    Figure 2.12: Adult sea squirt.

    Figure 2.13: Adult sea squirt structures (see book figure 3.4).

    • Once larva attaches, notochord and nervous system disappear

      • Resembles invertebrate
