Invertebrates A Survey of the various phyla Cambrian Explosion Rapid appearance 530 million years ago years ago of most major phyla. Before about 580 million years ago, most organisms were simple, composed of individual cells or small colonies of cells. Over 70 or 80 million years the

rate of evolution accelerated and the diversity of life began to resemble todays. Charles Darwin saw it as one of the main objections that could be made against his theory of evolution by natural selection. What caused such a rapid increase in the number of species? Strange Cambrian creatures !

Opabinia an extinct arthropod from the middle Cambrian period Microdictyon fossil and presumed form when alive One of the precursors to the Arthropoda (also Onychophora and Tardigrada, is the lobodopian Diania cactiformis (walking cactus) A possible restoration of Diania Cactiformis Phylum Porifera Examples are the

Sponges. Phyla name literally means pore bearing Asymmetrical symmetry Sessile No circulatory system Heterotrophs, multicellular, lack cell walls, contain few specialized cells. Porifera body structures

Asconoid Syconoid Leuconoid Example Sponge Choanocytes Flagellated Structure Function in moving water in so the

microvilli can filter out food materials from the water. Absorbed food is passed on to the amoebocytes which carry the food to the other cells. Become sexual cells during times of reproduction. A large barrel sponge!

Glass Sponge example Lavender sponges Touch me not sponges Sponge Asexual Reproduction Sponges have 3 asexual methods of reproduction: fragmentation, budding

and producing gemmules. Fragments of sponges can settle and reorganize as a functional sponge. Gemmules are survival pods of cells that can survive harsh conditions. A very few species reproduce by budding. This picture shows

some gemmules of the freshwater sponge spongilla. Sponge Sexual reproduction Most sponges are hermaphrodites Sperm are produced by choanocytes. Eggs are formed by transformation of

amebocytes, During spawning, sperm burst out of their cysts and are expelled via the osculum. If they contact another sponge of the same species, the water flow carries them to choanocytes that engulf them. The sperm are carried to the eggs and fertilization

occurs within the sponge. A few species release fertilized eggs into the water, but most retain the eggs until they hatch. Larval Sponges There are four types of larvae, but all are balls of cells with an outer layer of cells whose flagellae or cilia enable

the larvae to move. After swimming for a few days the larvae sink and crawl until they find a place to settle. Most of the cells transform into archeocytes and then into the types appropriate for their locations in a miniature adult sponge.

Freshwater Sponges Freshwater Sponges are useful for monitoring pollution In addition they produce an antibiotic that may have important biomedical and ecological functions.

Freshwater Sponge A colony of sponges growing on branches submerged in a Wisconsin Lake. Phylum contains over 9,000 species found in mostly marine environments. Their bodies consist of mesoglea, a jelly-like substance, sandwiched

between two layers of epithelium. They have two basic body forms: swimming medusae and sessile polyps. Both forms are radially symmetrical with mouths surrounded by tentacles that bear cnidocytes. Both forms have a single opening and body cavity that are used for digestion

and respiration. Cnidarians These cells function as harpoons, the barb remains connected to their body by threads. 3 types of cnidocytes are known. Nematocysts inject venom into prey, and usually

have barbs to keep them embedded in the victims. Spirocysts entangle prey by means of small sticky hairs on the thread. Only members of the class Anthozoa (sea anemones and corals) have spirocysts. Ptychocysts threads are used for building protective tubes in which

their owners live. Cnidocysts Form and Function Symmetry is Radial There are two basic forms: polyp and medusa. Polyps are mostly sessile, medusas are free swimming. Two cell layer with a gelatinous mesoglea.

Gastroderm helps in digestion. Prey is caught, placed in gastrovascular cavity and digested. There is no respiratory, circulatory or excretory systems. The skeleton is hydrostaticwater pressure maintains animals shape. A Nerve net consist is a

series of connected neurons lacking a brain This nervous system allows cnidarians to respond to physical contact. They may then detect food and other chemicals. Although the nerve net allows the animal to respond to its environment, it has trouble telling the animal the

direction of the stimulus. Simple animals with nerve nets, such as hydra, typically respond in the same way to contact with an object, regardless of where the contact occurs Nerve Net Sexual reproduction involves a complex life

cycle with both polyp and medusa stages. In Scyphozoa (jellyfish) and Cubozoa (box jellies) a larva swims until it finds a good site, and then becomes a polyp. This grows normally but then absorbs its tentacles and splits horizontally into a series of disks that become juvenile medusae, a process

called strobilation. The juveniles swim off and slowly grow to maturity. The adults have gonads in the gastroderm, and these release ova and sperm into the water in the breeding season Reproduction Class Anthozoa

This class of Cnidarians includes the sea anemones, sea pens and corals. The corals are the base for the tremendous diversity amount of life on the coral reef. There are two types of Coral, Soft and Hard. This is a picture of a type of soft coral. It lacks the hard calcium carbonate outer covering.

Different types of Coral Coral Polyp Anatomy Many species of coral have symbiotic relationship with algae. The algae is incorporated within the polyps bodies. The algae get protection and the coral get some food. Cnidarians importance Coral Reefs provide food and shelter for

thousands of species. The diversity of the Coral reef is second only to the rain forest. The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia is the largest structure made by animals and can be viewed from space. A Part of the Great Barrier Reef from Space

The Great Maya Reef This reef is the 2nd longest barrier reef in the world. It lies of the the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula Coral Reef areas of the World Class Scyphozoa Jellyfish can reproduce sexually. The fertilized egg becomes a free swimming larva (planula)

that plants on the ocean floor and forms a polyp. Stacks of medusas develop on this polyp and break off to become free swimming jellyfish Jellyfish Anatomy. They lack a brain but can detect light. The digestive system is incomplete. Jellyfish tank at Monterey Bay Aquarium

Box Jellyfish Very poisonous jellyfish found in the South Pacific. Symptoms include stinging, redness, burning, swelling of lymph nodes and in severe cases may result in difficulty in breathing and cardiac arrest.

Two Box Jellyfish safely held by their bells. Sting scars from Box Jellyfish. Class Hydrozoa Reproduce asexually by budding. At low temperatures reproduce sexually. Eggs and Sperm produced from

swellings on each animal. Fertilized egg grows into a hardened cyst and can survive the winter. They can move in a cartwheel like fashion to reattach at some other place. Hydra Anatomy Three layer body plan. Simple diffusion transports food, oxygen and wastes.

Coordination is accomplished via a nerve net. Hydra Nerve net A net like system of connected nerve cells. This allows for coordinated movements. This nerve net can repair itself. There is no central area

where nerve impulses travel to be interpreted. Freshwater Jellyfish (these are about 9 mm in dia.) Freshwater Jellyfish caught in Minnesota (Loon Lake) Pourtugese Man of War Portuguese Man of War.

Platyhelminthes The Flatworms This phyla includes tapeworms, flukes and planaria These creatures have bilateral symmetry. They have a definite head where sense organs and a brain are located. They have one body opening.

Flame cells function as primitive kidneys. Being thin and flat allows for oxygen to easily diffuse to the cells within. Planaria Anatomy. Note the presence of a nerve cord. Planaria Note the Nervous system

with a definite swelling at the anterior end of the animal. Reaction to stimulus will show direction. Respiration is through the skin no system! No cirulatory system. One body opening. Note the presence of an excretory system. Planarians are

hermaphroditic. Planaria body cross section Planaria regeneration Various regeneration experimental results Class Trematoda Blood flukes and liver flukes are flatworm parasites of other animals including

human. Blood flukes are the 2nd most important tropical disease after malaria. (Schistosomiasis) Parasitic organisms usually have a very simple digestive system since the food is coming to them predigested. Parasitic organisms often have a complex life cycle with at least one intermediate host

for the young. Blood Fluke life cycle Blood Fluke taken from circulatory system Class Cestoda Commonly called tapeworms. Composed of a head (scolex) and many body sections (proglottids).

At least two hosts for life cycle. Human tapeworm involves infected cow muscles. This phyla is called the round worms and includes trichina, hookworms, heart worms and nematodes.

Bilateral symmetry 2 body openings (a mouth and an anus) Hydrostatic skeleton system A pseudocoelom or a body cavity incompletely lined with mesoderm is present. Nematodes

Nematodes cont. Have a digestive system with a mouth and an anus. Respiration, circulation and excretion is through the skin. 4 nerves run the length of the body with an anterior ring that serves as a brain. Bilateral symmetry of the body. They reproduce sexually with

male and female worms. C. elegens, a free living nematode is important in research because it is transparent, easy to breed and easy to use in genetic research. Trichina This photo shows trichina worms which have formed cysts in

muscle tissue A human eating undercooked meat with these cysts would most likely catch this disease. Filarial worms and their larvae are parasitic thread-like round nematodes that cause a group of tropical

infectious diseases called Filariasis. The larvae are transmitted to humans through a mosquito bite. Filariasis is characterized by fever, chills, headache, and skin lesions in the early stages. If untreated, one type can progress to include gross enlargement of the limbs

and genitalia in a condition called elephantiasis. Filarial Worms A person suffering from elephantiasis. Dracunculus medinensis

Another filarial disease is caused by the Guinea worm. It infects people through the crustacean cyclops. Larvae from the cyclops, a freshwater crustacean, are

released when this creature is unknowingly swallowed while drinking water. Larvae develop in the intestinal wall and when mature (up to 120 cm long) the female moves under the skin to the persons leg. A blister develops here as the female releases her eggs. One of the most effective treatments is to curl the worm slowly up on a stick.

Ascaris Common parasite of humans. Enters the mouth via contaminated food, water or hands. Live in the small intestine. This is a parasitic nematode that lives in the small

intestine of its host, which may be a mammal such as a dog, cat, or human. It thrives in warm earth where temperatures are over 18C. They exist primarily in sandy or loamy soil and cannot live in clay or muck. Rainfall averages must be more than 1000 mm (40 inches) a year.

Infection of the host is by the larvae, not the eggs. the usual method of infection is through the skin; this is commonly caused by walking barefoot through areas contaminated with fecal matter Hookworm Hookworm cont.

The larvae are able to penetrate the skin of the foot. Once inside the body, they migrate through the vascular system to the lungs. From there they move up the trachea, and are swallowed. They then pass down the esophagus and

enter the digestive system, finishing their journey in the intestine, where the larvae mature into adult worms.[ A world wide problem The most significant risk of hookworm infection is anemia. The worms suck blood

voraciously and damage the mucosa. However, the blood loss in the stools is not visibly apparent. Hookworm is a leading cause of maternal and child morbidity in the developing countries of the tropics and subtropics. It is estimated that

between 576-740 million individuals are infected with hookworm today. Annelids (latin little ring) Since their larva are very similar to clams and snails annelids are probably more closer related to mollusks. Annelids are worms with segmented bodies.

They have a true coelom that is lined with tissue derived from mesoderm. They have a tube within a-tube digestive tract. Three classes: Oligochaetes earthwoms Leeches Polychaetes marine annelids Form and Function

Feeding and Digestion The range from filter feeders to predators. In earthworms the pharynx pumps food and soil into a tube called the esophagus. The food then moves through the crop, where it can be stored. Next the gizzard grinds the food into smaller

pieces. The food is absorbed in the intestine. Wastes pass out the anus. Form and Function Circulation Closed circulatory system; Blood is within vessels. Two main vessels

dorsal moves blood to the head, ventral moves blood to the tail. Dorsal blood vessel functions like a heart. Oxygen is absorbed through the skin. Aquatic annelids have gills. Like other animals

annelids produce 2 kinds of waste. Digestive wastes pass out the anus. Cellular waste is eliminated by nephridia. Nephridia filter the the fluid in the coelom Form and Function

Excretion Annelids have a well developed nervous system with a brain and several nerve cords. Sense organs are best developed in free-living marine annelids.

Many of the marine worms have sensory tentacles, chemical receptors, statocysts or eyes. Form and Function Nervous system Annelids have two major groups of muscles. Longitudinal muscles

run the length of the animal and can make it shorter and fatter. Circular muscles wrap around each segment and make the worm thinner and longer. The alternating use of these muscles allows the earthworm, with the help of the setae, to move through the soil.

Form and Function Movement Most annelids reproduce sexually. Some use external fertilization and have separate sexes. Others are hermaphrodites. Earthworms are

hermaphrodites. When eggs are ready for fertilization a clitellum secrtetes a mucus ring into which the eggs and sperm are released. Fertilization takes place within this ring. Form and function Reproduction

Giatn gippsland earthworm of Australia Class Hirudinea Leeches are annelids that are ectoparasites of other animals. They have been used for hundreds of years in medicine to allow a wound to not coagulate too quickly.

Terrestrial Leeches This species feeds on earthworms. Land Leeches Live in jungle areas of Asia and Australia Will attach themselves to people as they walk through the jungle. Class polychaeta Largest and oldest class of annelids. Include fan (C) and

feather (B) worms and the birstle worm (A) seen in this slide. Touching the bristle worm causes the bristles to break off creating painful wounds. Aerate and mix the soil to a depth of 2 m or

more. Tunnels provide passageways for roots and water. Allow the growth of beneficial oxygen requiring bacteria. They pull plant material down into the soil which helps it decompose. They bring minerals up from below and their

castings are rich in nitrogen. The are an important part of the diet of many animals. Ecology of Annelids Soft body, often with an internal or external shell. Gastropods, Cephalapods and

Pelecypods (Bivalves) Octopus probably has largest and most complex brain of any invertebrate. Giant Squid (Architeuthis dux, 1878 55 ft.long - 4,400 lbs. Colossal Squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni larger but not longer and more rare.

Mollusks Largest marine phylum All have a mantle with a cavity used for breathing and excretion. The mantle in many mollusks secretes the shell. (CaCO3)

All have at least two pairs of nerve cords. Most have a muscular foot. All mollusks have the same trochophore larva Mollusks Form and Function

Zebra Mussels Originally native to Russia Introduced to the US in ballast water in large cargo ships. With no native predators has caused lots of problems by literally covering all hard structures. Poses a threat to native

mussels, intake pipes, boats and any other hard structure in the water. No known way to control the population. Foot muscular organ. In snails secretes mucus to aid movement. In clams is adapted for burrowing. In cephalopods it is used for

jet propulsion and is the origin of the tentacles. Mantle dorsal part of the body wall. Secretes shell and forms the mantle cavity. Shell secreted from mantle, composed of chitin hardened with CaCO3 Visceral mass area below the mantle that contains the digestive, nervous and

excretory organs Body Plan Feeding Clams Filter feeders with incurrent and excurrent siphons. Snails- have a chitinous radula that is used to rasp

bits of algae off of hard surfaces. Cephalopods have a chitinous parrot like beak used to tear into prey. Respiration, Circulation, Nervous, Movement Respiration is through gills except for terrestrial mollusks. Circulation

cephalopods closed, gastropods and bivalves open system. Nervous ganglion/brain with a ventral nerve cord Movement snails and clams via the foot, cephalopods incurrent and excurrent siphon.

Reproduction Gastropods hemaphroditic, but exchange sex cells Bivalves mostly separate sexes Cephalopods separate sexes All except cephalopods have a trocophore larval stage.

are enhanced by strong hooks. Suspected to grow to 50 feet or more. Colossal Squid This picture is of the animals beak which is exceptionally large and strong. 6 specimens are known excluding this

one, with five coming from sperm whale stomachs. Colossal Squid tentacles Another look at the hooked tentacles of the Colossal Squid. Hypothetical sizes (note Sperm Whale should be increased to 25 meters)

Mollusks (Squid, octopi, and nautaloids) North Pacific Octopus is the largest. 23 ft radial spread and 118 lbs. Cephalopods have separate sexes Mollusks - Gastropods Literally means stomach footed. This class includes

snails, conchs and slugs. This picture shows a conch which is a species of marine snail. They are such a popular food that in many areas they have to be protected. Mollusks Bivalves This class includes animals with two shells. (Clams,

mussels, scallops,etc.) The Giant Clam can weigh over 500 lbs. And be more than 3.5 feet long. It is grown as a food crop in the South Pacific. Ecology of Mollusks

Clams, as filter feeders, help to clean up the water. Others assist in eating and disposing of detritus. Many species are important sources of food for people. Are hosts to parasites or are parasites themselves.

Examples include crabs, shrimp, spiders, scorpions, butterflies and daphnia! 750,000 species. More than 3X the number of all the others combined! Like annelids, arthropods are composed of body segments. Evolution of arthropods

has led to fewer body segments and specialized appendages for feeding, movement and defense. Cambrian arthropods include trilobites. Arthropods jointed feet Form and Function Feeding and Feeding Mouthparts have

evolved to enable different species to eat almost any food imaginable. Include pincers, fangs, sickle shaped jaw and proboscis of various shapes. The army ant, pictured here, uses its jaws for

defense! Form and Function Respiration and Circulation Terrestrial species breathe through a net work of branching tracheal tubes. Aquatic species use gills. Spiders use book lungs

to breathe. They have an open circulatory system. A well developed heart pumps blood through arteries that branch and enter tissues. The blood recollects in a large sinus near the heart. Spider anatomy book lungs

Crayfish gills Form and Function Excretion Terrestrial arthropods use malpighian tubules to filter nitrogenous wastes from the

blood. In aquatic species diffusion moves these wastes from the body to the water. Form and Function Response/Nervous Well developed nervous system with a brain and a

ventral nerve cord. Along the nerve cord are several ganglia which help to coordinate the movements of individual legs and wings. Most have sophisticated sense organs such as compound eyes.

Form and Function movement / exoskeletons, chitin Arthropods have well developed muscle tissue that pull across the joints of the exoskeleton. The muscles are grouped in opposing pairs so one group

can undo (flex) what the other group does extend)! The exoskeleton is made up of the polysaacharide chitin. Reproduction Terrestrial species have internal fertilization.

The male either deposits the sperm in the females body or leaves it in a packet to be picked up by her. Aquatic species have internal and external fertilization.

Growth and Development Exoskeletons do not grow. As the arthropod grows it will molt (shed its skin) and manufactures a larger one to take its place. Molting is controlled by the endocrine system which uses

hormones. Skin glands digest the old exoskeleton. The new one can take several hours to develop and harden. Complete metamorphosis Process of growth and development where the larval

form looks nothing like the adult. Usually there is a resting state in a pupa, chrysalis or cocoon. Bees, moths, butterflies, ants, and beetles undergo complete

metamophosis. Incomplete metamorphosis This process proceeds from an egg to nymph to adult. Grasshoppers, crickets and boxelder bugs undergo this

process. There may be several nymph stages. Class Crustacea Two body regions, cephalothorax and abdomen. At least one pair of mandibles Swimmerets - specialized appendages used for

swimming. Includes crayfish, crabs, lobsters, shrimp, barnacles, copepods, daphnia and sow bugs Crayfish external anatomy Phylum Arthropoda subphylum - crustacea Crayfish internal anatomy this view is below the gills. 6 species of Crayfish live in Minnesota with one species, the Rusty

Crayfish, being an introduced invasive pest. The northern or Virile crayfish, listed below is common in Minnesota and attains a length up to 145 mm (14.5 cm or nearly 6 in. long) Pillbugs Pillbugs are land crustaceans with a rounder back and deeper body than sowbugs. When disturbed they can roll into a tight ball like an armadillo

They have gills which need constant moisture so they live in moist, humid areas They are nocturnal, eating decaying plant material Sowbugs Sowbugs are land crustaceans which look a lot like pillbugs. They have 7 pairs of legs and reach a length of 15

mm. They also have gills and feed on decaying plants and young plant shoots. Includes spiders, scorpions, mites and ticks. Two body segments, fangs and pedipalps, book lungs and Malphigian tubules.

Two general groups, wolf spiders and orb weavers. All have a poisonous bite, but few actually bite. In the US the black widow and the brown recluse are the most dangerous. Class Arachnida

Wolf Spiders Minnesota Fishing Spider or Dock Spider is the largest spider in the state with a body length of 1 inch and a leg span

of 3 inches Very active hunters patrolling rocks and docks near the waters edge. They have been seen running across the water to catch minnows, frogs and tadpoles. They will give a painful bite if handled roughly. Orb Weavers Spin a web and wait for

prey to become entangled. Poisonous bite paralyzes prey. Male usually much smaller. Black widow is most poisonous in US and will venture into garages and basements in the southern US Brown Recluse Spider

Very shy with a violin shaped marking on the back. Body 1/4 to 1/2 inch long, legs and body cover an area the size of a quarter. Most poisonous spider in MN Class Arachnida sub-class solfugae (Sun Spiders)

Sun spider chelicerae 3/4 of all known species. 3 body regions, head, thorax and abdomen. Three pairs of legs attached to the thorax. Wings are made of chitin as well as the

exoskeleton. Have mouthparts designed for their food. Can communicate with sounds or pheromones. Class Insecta Wingspan 2.0 -2.3 in. Hibernates in MN

Caterpillar feeds on Nettles, Hops and baby tears. They use a few strands of silk to draw the leaf together in a tube. Adults feed on the nectar of lilacs, butterflybush and other flowers.

Red Admiral Mosquito Adult female feeds on blood to help nourish developing eggs in her body. Males feed on flower nectar. Eggs are laid in water and larva hatch and eat algae in water, breathing through a

tube which extends to surface of water. Termites Social insects with different forms having specific jobs in the colony. Can eat wood, because of microbe in the gut.

One of the chief producers of methane gas on the planet. Hornets (Yellowjackets) These are not bees!! They can sting several times, since stinger is not barbed.

Eat nectar and decaying plant and animal material. Become aggressive and persistent towards the end of summer. Chilopoda Can have up to 100 pairs of legs. One pair of legs for each body

segment. Their spiracles do not close and their exoskeleton is not water proof. They tend to live in warm, moist areas. Claws located near the head are often poisonous.

Diplopoda the millipedes Each segment has two pairs of legs. Tend to be vegetarians. Will roll up in a ball when disturbed. Some species protect themselves by secreting unpleasant

chemicals. Harmless vegetarians for the most part.

Spiny skinned animals, internal skeleton, water vascular system and tube feet. Most have 5 part symmetry. Include Starfish, Brittle Stars, Sea Cucumbers, Sea Urchins,

Crinoids and Sand Dollars Largest phylum to not include any freshwater or terrestrial representatives. Radial symmetry Tube feet Nerve ring and chords in arms. Largest 54 inch diameter and 13 lbs. Echinoderms

Starfish Usually has 5 arms. Mouth and anus on ventral side close to each other. Pedicallaria, tiny pincerlike structures keep the arms free of algae. They are carnivorous eating sponges, bryozoans, ascidians and molluscs.

Echinoderms Form and Function Respiration through tube feet. Digestive wastes through anus. Ammonia released through tube feet. Nerve ring with nerve cords down the arms. Scattered cells that are sensitive to light, chemicals and gravity.

External Fertilization. Swimming larva settles to bottom and grows into adult. Larva have bilateral symmetry! Sea Lillys Cup shaped body with feather like arms protruding from a central disk. Mouth and anus on the

upper side of disk Usually anchored to bottom, they can crawl, swim, roll or walk to new areas. They feed on planktonic animals that they catch with their feathery arms. Sea Cucumbers

Bilateral symmetry with a mouth at one end and an anus at the other. Flexible muscular body, with numerous modified tube feet around the mouth which function in food gathering.

Most of them crawl over the bottom ingesting sand and digesting organic material from the sand. When attacked they excrete a thread like material that is part of their digestive system. This tissue is very toxic and usually discourages the attacker. A few different sea cucumbers

Crown of Thorns Starfish This starfish eats coral polyps. It has damaged extensive areas of the Great Barrier Reef. It seems as if there numbers have decreased lately. Sea Urchins Radial symmetry with a

ventral mouth containing a jaw and horny teeth. Anus is on the upper surface. Movable spines are attached to the body and some are poisonous Movement is by tube feet. They eat algae, detritus, sponges and ascidians Sand Dollars

Sand Dollars are specialized Sea urchins that bury themselves in sand and eat decaying organic material that they find there. Brittle Stars Close relatives of Starfish, they have no anus, wastes are

eliminated through the ventral mouth. They feed on small invertebrates, plankton and organic material they find on other animals.
