Phylum porifera cellular level of organization

Phylum porifera*Cellular Level of Organization

  • Organisms in the phylum Porifera are among the simplest animals

    • Many sponges are radially symmetrical

      • Their parts are arranged around a central axis

    • Choanocytes are specialized cells that make up poriferans.

Central axis

Phylum porifera

Phylum porifera

  • Filter feeders:

    • Flagellated choanocytes filter food from the water passing through the porous body

    • Sessile: stay in one place

Phylum porifera1

Phylum porifera

  • The sponge lineage arose very early.

    • They probably evolved from multicellular choanoflagellates, the group that most likely gave rise to the animal kingdom.

Single cell


Phylum cnidaria tissue level organization

Phylum Cnidaria*Tissue level organization

  • Cnidarians are the simplest animals with tissues.

  • These animals exist in two radially symmetricalforms:

    • Polyp

    • Medusa

Phylum cnidaria

Phylum Cnidaria

  • Cnidocytes on their tentacles sting prey

    • The tentacles, controlled by nerves, then push the food through the mouth into a gastrovascularcavity.

    • In the cavity, the food is digested and then distributed.

    • Only one opening in digestive system.

Phylum platyhelminthes organ level of organization

Phylum Platyhelminthes*Organ level of Organization

  • Flatworms are the simplest bilateral animals.

  • Flatworms have organs.

  • Planarians have a simple nervous system consisting of a brain, sense organs, and branching nerves.

  • As in cnidarians, the mouth of a flatworm is the only opening for its gastrovascularcavity.

  • Tapeworms can be eaten by cattle and burrow into the intestines and muscles.

  • If meat is not properly inspected, humans can be infected by eating rare or undercooked beef.

Quick evolution checkpoint

Quick evolution checkpoint

  • Porifera, Cnidaria, and Platyhelminthes lack a body cavity.

  • Nearly all other animals have a body cavity called a coelom.

  • This cavity is a fluid-filled space between the digestive tract and the body wall.

    • The cavity aids in movement, cushions organs, and it may help in circulation.

Phylum nematoda pseudocoelom

Trichinella juvenile

Muscle tissue

Phylum nematoda*Pseudocoelom

  • AKA: Roundworms

  • Nematodes have a body cavity not completely lined by mesoderm called a psuedocoelom.

  • Like most animals, they possess a complete digestive tract.

    • This is a tube with a mouth and an anus. (One-way tract)

  • Many nematodes are free-living.

  • Others are parasites.

Phylum mollusca coelom

Phylum Mollusca*Coelom

  • Phylum Mollusca is a large and diverse phylum that includes

    • gastropods, such as snails and slugs

    • bivalves, such as clams and scallops

    • cephalopods, such as squids and octopuses

Phylum mollusca

Phylum Mollusca

  • All mollusks have a muscular foot and a mantle

    • The mantle may secrete a shell which encloses the visceral mass

  • Mollusks have a true coelom and a circulatory system

    • Many mollusks feed with a rasping radula

Quick evolution checkpoint after a body cavity evolved

Quick evolution checkpoint:After a Body cavity evolved…

  • Segmentation is the subdivision of some or most of the body into a series of repeated parts, or segments.

  • Segmentation probably evolved as an adaptation for movement

Quick evolution checkpoint protostomal larval development

Quick Evolution checkpoint:Protostomal larval development

  • Protostomal larval development:

    • Earliest type of larval development according to evolution

    • Mouth is the first opening to develop.

    • Cells of the embryo cannot be altered.

Phylum annelida body segmentation protostomes

Phylum Annelida*body segmentation & protostomes

  • Earthworms and other annelids are segmented worms whose mouths develop first in the larval stage.

  • The segmented bodies of annelids give them added mobility for swimming and burrowing.

    • An earthworm eats its way through soil.

    • Most leeches are free-living carnivores, but some suck blood.

Phylum arthropoda jointed appendages

Phylum arthropoda*jointed appendages



  • Arthropods are the most numerous and widespread of all animals.

  • They are segmented animals with exoskeletons and jointed appendages.

Mouthparts (feeding)

Phylum arthropoda

Phylum arthropoda

  • In terms of numbers, distribution, and diversity, they are the most successful phylum of animals.

  • Diversity:

    • Insects

    • Crustaceans (marine arthropods)

    • Arachnids

    • Millipedes & centipedes

  • Horseshoe crabs are ancient marine arthropods

Phylum arthropoda1

Phylum arthropoda

  • Insects are the most diverse group of organisms.

  • They have a three-part body consisting of head, thorax, and abdomen.

  • The development of many insects includes metamorphosis.









Phylum arthropoda2

Phylum arthropoda

  • Metamorphosis:

    • Larvae: specialized for eating and growing

    • Adults: specialized for dispersal and reproduction

Phylum echinodermata deuterostome endoskeleton radial symmetry

Phylum Echinodermata*deuterostome, endoskeleton, radial symmetry

  • Echinoderms have spiny skin, an endoskeleton, and a water vascular system for movement.

  • Phylum Echinodermata includes organisms such as sea stars and sea urchins

    • These organisms are radially symmetrical as adults

Phylum echinodermata

Phylum echinodermata

  • The water vascular system has suction-cup-like tube feet used for respiration and locomotion.






Phylum chordata notochord

Phylum chordata*notochord

  • Notochord: flexible, tough rod that provides support for the animal and gives muscles a place to attach

Phylum chordata notochord1

Phylum chordata*notochord

  • Organisms in this phylum (LIKE US) are segmented animals with four distinctive features:

    • Dorsal hollow nerve cord

    • Stiff notochord

    • Pharyngeal slits behind the mouth

    • Muscular post-anal tail

We’ll study this phylum
