Integumentary system l.jpg


I. Two Types A. Invertebrate type - epidermis plus basement membrane - protochordatesB. Vertebrate type complex dermis + epidermis Trends -

thin in anamniotes

thick in amniotes

Basement Membrane



Ii dermal derivatives l.jpg

Leptoid Scale

Ganoid Scale

Placoid Scale

Cycloid Scale

Ctenoid Scale


II. Dermal Derivatives

A. Dermal armor 1.Dermal bone - Ostracoderms 2. Cosmoid scale of primitive fishes gave rise to dermocranium and dermal girdles

Cosmoid Scale

Fish scales l.jpg
Fish Scales

3. Placoid scale of chondrichthyes

Shark placoid scales

and teeth

Slide5 l.jpg

4. Ganoid scales of gar and sturgeons

contain the protein ganoin

5. Leptoid scale - loss of ganoinand gave rise to the cycloid

scale & ctenoid scale (with ctenii)

Cycloid scales

Ctenoid scales

Other Dermal Derivatives

6. Osteoderms - crocodilia

7. Secondary dermal armor - armadillo shell

Slide7 l.jpg

B. Scale derivatives 1. Branchiostegal rays - rods of bone

supporting the ventral pharyngeal wall in fish

2. Bony plates of sturgeons

Summary of dermal derivatives l.jpg
Summary of Dermal Derivatives

C. Dermal armor derivatives 1. Dermocranium 2. Teeth 3. Dermal girdle 4. Body scales 5. Osteoderms - crocodilians and some lizards 6. Specialized dermal boney shells (dermal bone of armadillo)

and Finally

D. Chromatophores - derived from embryonic nervous system1. Types a. melanophores - brown to black pigments

b. lipophores & xanthophores - yellowerythrophores - red c. guanophores - white d. iridocytes - contain crystalsAll controlled by hormones




Malanophores l.jpg

In most vertebrates, MSH is produced by an intermediate lobe of the pituitary gland. Its secretion causes a dramatic darkening of the skin of fishes, amphibians, and reptiles. The darkening occurs as granules of melanin spread through the branches of specialized melanocytes called melanophores.

Iii epidermal derivatives l.jpg
III. Epidermal Derivatives

A. Epidermal seal cuticle - nonliving layer in protochordates, lung fishes, and larval amphibiansmucoid coat - mucous - fish, amphibians

keratin - in all, but more pronounced in terrestrial vertebratesSquamous cytoplasm granules form keratin that is first prevalent in reptiles and shed - ecdysis

B epidermal scales reptiles birds mammals l.jpg
B. Epidermal scales - reptiles, birds, mammals

Keratin - soon to be shed

New Kertin layer

Mitotic Layer of epidermis


Reptilian scales

Unguis -

keratinized nail

Subunguis -

living tissue that

generates ungus


E hooves l.jpg
E. Hooves



Pad or cuneus


F glands l.jpg
F. Glands

1. Ancestral serous glands - precursor to the glands below

2. Poison glands – amphibians & frog licking

3. Wax glands - birds mammals

Slide16 l.jpg

4. Tubular glands - mammals

5. Sweat and

Mammary glands

6. Modern serous glands - Holocrine - cells shed and degenerate into fluidscent glands (reptiles)mucous glandssebaceous gland - oil scent glands of mammalsuroptygial gland - oil gland on tail of birds

G hair l.jpg
G. Hair

Develops from epidermis and

protrudes or grows into the dermis

Evolution of hair l.jpg





Evolution of Hair

  • No fossil evidence of origin of hair

  • Possibly arose from sensory structures of reptiles called prototrichs

Reptilian scales with

triads of prototrichs

Hairs of mammals arranged in triads


H feathers l.jpg
H. Feathers

1. Formation
