Invertebrates
Invertebrates

  • Animals without backbones

  • Most animals


Sponges
Sponges

  • Porifera ≠ clade

  • Two possible phyla:

    • Silicea (most sponges)

    • Calcarea

Characteristics of cnidarians
Characteristics of Cnidarians

  • Radial symmetry

  • Diploblastic

    • Epidermis

    • Gastrodermis

    • Mesoglea

  • Gastrovascular Cavity

  • Tentacles with cnidocytes



Exchange processes
Exchange Processes

  • Body wall  Two layers of cells

  • Cell transport occurs at both layers

    • Water Balance

    • Ion Balance

    • Waste Disposal

    • Gas Exchange


Digestion
Digestion

  • Two forms

    • Intracellular

    • Extracellular

  • Extracellular digestion  major evolutionary advance

  • Allows animals to eat things larger than their cells

  • Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3VSvyxrwXA



Transport
Transport

  • As cnidarian moves, water moves through GVC

  • GVC serves as transport system

Platyhelminthes
Platyhelminthes

  • Free-living Flatworms

    • Planarians

    • Marine Flatworms

  • Flukes

  • Tapeworms

Characteristics of platyhelminths
Characteristics of Platyhelminths

  • Bilateral Symmetry

  • Triploblastic

  • Acoelomate

  • Gastrovascular Cavity

    • Extensive branching

  • Flat body

Exchange processes1
Exchange Processes

  • Body is flat and thin  ↑ Surface Area

  • Highly branched GVC  ↑ Surface Area

  • Cell transport occurs at both places

    • Water Balance

    • Ion Balance

    • Waste Disposal

    • Gas Exchange
