A few (e.g., Phagocata) reproduce by fragmentation, each part encysting until the new worm forms. Al- though these similarities may suggest a relationship be- tween ctenophores and trachyline cnidarians, cteno- phores also show certain similarities to the scyphozoans and anthozoans, such as the stomodeum and the highly cellular mesenchyme, and the four-lobed gastrovascular cavity of the cydippid larva. Once they settle down they don't move anymore.

Despite these unusual features, early naturalists recognized them as ctenophores by the presence of an apical sense organ, comb rows, and a pair of tentacles. Students will examine the ecology of invertebrates along with their structures and functions. Each autumn, lobsters queue up in single file and march in long lines for several days. However, the course makes primary use of the following materials: Requirements for Completion: In order to complete this course, you will need to work through each unit and all of its assigned materials.

Cnidarians in general have a great capacity for regen- eration, as exemplified by experiments on Hydra. Studies on the Invertebrate Fauna of New Zealand Peat Soils. Spengel based his scheme on the nervous sys- tem and divided the gastropods into the Streptoneura and Euthyneura. The notochord is a dorsal, elastic, rodlike structure, derived from a middorsal strip of embryonic (archenteric) mesoderm, that provides structural and locomotory support in the body of larval or adult chordates. 842 CHAPTER TWENTY-THREE Figure 23.1 Representative deuterostomes.

For example, they char- acteristically possess a sensory pyriform organ complex and a pouchlike adhesive sac, both of which are impor- tant in settling and metamorphosis (Figure 21.17). A short proctodeal rectum leads to the anus. As development proceeds, eight complete mesenteries de- velop in the planula, producing the so-called edwardsia stage, named after the octamesenterial genus Edwardsia.

Testes have a central pore from which sperm escape and swim to a waiting ovum in the ovary of a female. Porcelaneous tests appear shiny and white, like fired porcelain in reflected light, and are probably the most familiar to the introductory student (Figure 5.40). Because muscles cannot elongate by themselves, they must be stretched by antagonistic forces—usually other muscles, hydrostatic forces, or elastic structures.

In aquatic arthropods, it also serves a hydrostatic function when the animal molts and temporarily loses its exoskele- tal support. The outer cover- ing may be gelatinous or chitinous, as it is in the Phy- lactolaemata and Ctenostomata, or calcified, as it is in the Stenolaemata and Cheilostomata.

Protein digestion is completed intracellularly by ex- opeptidases within the food vacuoles of the midgut ep- ithelium. Evidence for a clade of ne- matodes, arthropods and other moulting animals. Museum of Natural History, University of Kansas, Lawrence. Gastropods are probably the best known molluscs (Figures 20.1C–H, 20.5, 20.6, and 20.7). The fluid nutrients are drawn in with the retracting stomach. The bell, the body of the jellyfish, can be 2m in diameter.
