Invertebrates


Invertebrates1

Invertebrates

  • Major Phyla

    • Porifera = Sponges

    • Cnidarians = Jellyfish

    • Mollusks = Squids, clams, snails

    • Annelids = Earthworms, leeches

    • Arthropods = insects, crustaceans


Phylum porifera

Phylum Porifera

  • AKA: Sponges

  • Most primitive animals (>570myo)

    • Related to subgroup of animal-like protista

  • ~9000 species (most saltwater)

  • Sessile (stationary)

  • Asymmetrical


Phylum porifera1

Phylum Porifera

  • AKA: Sponges

  • Most primitive animals (>570myo)

    • Related to subgroup of animal-like protista

  • ~9000 species (most saltwater)

  • Sessile (stationary)

  • Assemtrical

  • Reproduction:

    • Sexual: egg and sperm released into water

      • Larva attaches to surface and grows into sessile adult


Phylum porifera2

Phylum Porifera

  • AKA: Sponges

  • Most primitive animals (>570myo)

    • Related to subgroup of animal-like protista

  • ~9000 species (most saltwater)

  • Sessile (stationary)

  • Assemtrical

  • Reproduction:

    • Sexual: sperm released into water

      • Larva attaches to surface and grows into adult

    • Asexual: Budding

Sponge

Sponge Structure

WATER

  • Filter feeders:

    • Water sucked in through many pores

    • Water exits through osculum

Sponge structure1

Sponge Structure

  • Filter feeders:

    • Water sucked in through many pores

    • Water exits through osculum

  • Specialization:

    • Pinacocytes (Outer layer): Flat, protective cells

    • Choanocytes (collar cells): cilia create currents to draw water inside

      • Similar to animal-like protista

    • Amoebocytes: absorb, digest, transfer nutrients to other cells

    • Spicules: skeleton
