In crystalline form, an aspirin-sized tablet of saxitoxin from G. catenella would be strong enough to kill 35 persons. In: Africanized Honey Bees and Bee Mites, ed. Chichester, England: Ellis Horwood Limited. Recent anatomical work by Edward Ruppert and colleagues supports the idea. Estuaries and other coastal wetlands are also of prime importance to both resident and migratory populations of water birds. The first hypothesis, known as the “turbellarian theory,” was 64 CHAPTER TWENTY Figure 20.55 A cladogram depicting one view of the phylogeny of the Mollusca.

The octopus also has a statocyst located next to the brain. Finally, this course should provide a foundation to the field of invertebrate zoology and any of its daughter disciplines. The male reproductive system of spiders consists of a pair of coiled tubular testes in the opisthosoma, which lead to a common sperm duct that opens into the epi- gastric furrow (Figure 19.23A). In syconoid sponges the larva produced is called stomoblastula, since it has a mouth and feeds on nurse cells within mesogloea and grows for a few days.

The nephrostomes are ciliated funnels associated with coelomic circulatory vessels, an arrangement that probably evolved with the reduction in the main body coelom and the loss of septa. Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, Vol. 152, no. 1. Earthworms have a head and a central nervous system. The cavities of the forepart and trunk are paired, with sagittally arranged mesenteries bisecting the body. (The cavities of these first three body regions were likened to the protocoel, mesocoel, and metacoel of deuterostomes until the body orientation was resolved and the opisthosoma was discovered.) The opisthosoma comprises several segments, each with cavities in a typical annelid-like metameric arrangement.

They parasitize rep- tiles, birds, and mammals. The hydrostatic or structural qualities of the body cavity, along with the well devel- oped cuticle, provide body support. The implication here is that the germ layer of the precursor of a regenerated part may not correspond to the “normal” origin of that part.

As part of the behavioral model, I'd like to specify the passive sinking velocity of the megalopae. They lack a respiratory and circulatory system, a skeleton, and an anus. On the nature of metameric segmentation and some other morphological questions. However, the details of feeding and the exact nature of their food are not known. In the case of Synaptula hydriformis, researchers found that these animals are not only simultaneous hermaphrodites, but they are also capable of self-fertilization (Frick 1998).
