Phylum: Platyhelminthes (Flatworms): 

Phylum: Platyhelminthes (Flatworms) Characteristics: 1. Lack respiratory system 2. Lack circulatory system 3. Bilaterally symmetrical Tapeworm

Class: Trematoda Common Name: flukes: 

Class: Trematoda Common Name: flukes Characteristics: Parasitic Leaf shaped Endo or ectoparasitic Tegument = tough outer coating Fluke egg in stool.

Ex. Blood Fluke: 

Ex. Blood Fluke Causes Shistosomiasis (tropics) 800,000 people/yr die Adult fluke lives in the human bloodstream.

Contraction of Blood Fluke: 

Contraction of Blood Fluke Larvae bore into foot  Matures in blood  lays eggs  eggs in human feces  eggs hatch in water  larvae bore into foot

Class: Cestoda (Common Name: Tapeworm): 

Class: Cestoda (Common Name: Tapeworm) Characteristics: Parasitic Tegument Scolex – head with hooks and suckers for attachment No mouth, sense organs or digestive tract (absorb nutrients through skin)

Life Cycle of a Tapeworm:: 

Life Cycle of a Tapeworm: Cow eats grass infected w/tapeworm eggs  larvae hatch & bore into muscles & form cysts  human eats undercooked meat  cyst matures into adult worm & lives in human intestine cyst

Phylum: Nematoda Common Name: Roundworm: 

Phylum: Nematoda Common Name: Roundworm Characteristics: Cuticle – protective outer covering Free-living or parasitic Terrestrial, marine or aquatic

3 Parasitic Nematodes of Humans: 

3 Parasitic Nematodes of Humans 1. Ascaris Death caused by blocked intestine or clogged lungs Contracted by consuming contaminated food or water


2. Hookworm Causes anemia by feeding on blood Mate in human intestine Contracted through bare feet Hookworm embedded in human intestine.


Hookworm in human.


3. Trichinella Causes trichinosis – sore stiff muscles Contracted when humans eat undercooked pork Trichinella larvae.

Phylum: Annelida: 

Phylum: Annelida Annelida originates from a Latin word meaning ‘little rings’.

“In addition, they may ingest and excrete large quantities of sediments or soils. Robison (1987) notes that some sandy beaches may harbor 32,000 burrowing annelids per square meter, which collectively may ingest and excrete 3 metric tons of sand per year. The tubes sticking up from the sand in this picture, taken on a beach at Bahia de las Animas, Baja California, give some idea of how common polychaetes can be in such environments. “:

Class: Oligochaeta Common Name: Earthworm: 

Class: Oligochaeta Common Name: Earthworm


Characteristics Body cavity separated by septa Septa


2. Digestion Feed on soil Absorb nutrients directly from soil Pathway: Mouth  pharynx esophagus  crop (temporary storage)  gizzard (grinds soil to release nutrients)  intestine (absorbs nutrients)  anus gizzard intestine


3. Circulation Closed circulatory system Blood flow: anterior to posterior through ventral blood vessel then posterior to anterior through dorsal blood vessel


Aortic arches – contract to pump blood (primitive heart) Aortic arches Seminal vesicles


4. Nervous System Sensitive to light, touch, moisture, chemicals, temperature, vibrations Direction sensed by light receptors in tail & head Nerve ganglion pharynx


Nerve Ganglion


5. Movement Peristaltic contraction of muscles (wave-like) Circular & longitudinal muscles cuticle Longitudinal muscle Circular muscle


Peristaltic Motion


6. Respiration O2 & CO2 diffuse across the skin Skin must be moist


7. Excretion Wastes are eliminated through nephridia in each segment Nephridia between septa walls Nephros(greek)=kidney


8. Reproduction Hermaphrodites – possess both male & female sex organs *(but DO NOT fertilize self) Seminal vesicles ovary Seminal receptical testes


Clitellums secrete mucus around worms Both worms eject sperm into the mucus Sperm swims to the seminal receptacle of the other Eggs are fertilized by sperm inside the oviducts Worm wiggles out of mucus


Ventral nerve cord Ventral blood vessel gut

Phylum: Arthropoda: 

Phylum: Arthropoda “Jointed Foot”

Phylum Arthropoda: 

Phylum Arthropoda ¾ of all animal species are Arthropods Their characteristics have allowed them to adapt to nearly every environment on Earth! Composed of a diverse group of bilaterally symmetrical coelomates (body cavity formed from the mesoderm) Most likely evolved from a common ancestor with metamerism & appendages on every segment

Arthropod Characteristics: 

Arthropod Characteristics Segmented Appendages (jointed legs & antennae) Tagmata (specialized fused body segments) Compound Eyes (many individual light detectors) Open Circulatory System Cephalization Ventral Nerve Cord Exoskeleton


Exoskeleton 3 layers: Outer – waxy; repels H2O & prevents dessication Middle – chitin, protein & CaCO3; protection Inner - flexible joints to allow for movement What is a disadvantage of an exoskeleton?


Molting Periodic shedding of the exoskeleton Inner layer of exoskeleton is digested Organism swells, releasing exoskeleton New exoskeleton is secreted & will harden in a few days

Subphylum: Crustacea: 

Subphylum: Crustacea Approx. 40,000 species Examples: shrimp, lobsters, crabs, crayfish, copepods, isopods, water fleas & barnacles Characteristics: Branched antennae Mandibles


Development Nauplius free-swimming larval stage 3 pairs of appendages 1 eye Adult 16-20 segments (may be fused) 2 pairs of appendages per segment 2 compound eyes

The Crayfish: 

The Crayfish Freshwater lobster AKA “Yabbies” down under Decapod (“ten feet”; ie. five pairs of legs)

External Structure: 

External Structure (Composed of two tagmata) (5 segments) Thorax (8 segments) (7 segments) (7th segment) Uropods (propulsion)

External continued: 

External continued (large pincers used for capturing food and defense) (feelers) (touch, taste, equilibrium)

(create water currents to help with reproduction): 

(create water currents to help with reproduction) *Four Pairs of Walking Legs (first two pairs have special pincers for grasping small objects)

External Head:

Invertebrates v. Vertebrates: 

Invertebrates v. Vertebrates *There are many more differences than just the presence or absence of a backbone.*

Invertebrate Characteristics: 

Invertebrate Characteristics Symmetry radial or bilateral Segmentation = repeating similar units (some) Body Support = exoskeleton (limiting) or body cavity fluid pressure Respiratory System gas exchange or gills Circulatory System open or closed 6. Digestive & Excretory Systems = gut 7. Nervous System = range from no neurons to simple brain 8. Reproductionsome hermaphroditic 9. Development indirect (intermediate larval stage) or direct (young born as it will appear for life)

Vertebrate Characteristics: 

Vertebrate Characteristics Symmetry bilateral Body Support endoskeleton & vertebrae (segmentation) Body Coverings integument (outer covering) Respiratory Lungs or gills Circulatory closed 6. Digestive gut 7. Excretory kidneys 8. Nervous highly organized brains 9. Reproduction separate sexes 10. Development indirect or direct

Anura Characteristics: 

Anura Characteristics Habitat Aquatic Terrestrial Arboreal Red Eyed Tree Frog


Red-Eyed Tree Frog Habitat: Found in rainforests. Close to rivers. Most of Central America and parts of South America. Diet: Flies, crickets, moths and other bugs. Even smaller frogs. Enemies: Snakes, bats, and large birds. Facts: They have very sticky toes which are like suction cups. They have red eyes, are small and very delicate. Red-eyed tree frogs can grow up to 3 inches. Most of its life is spent in the rainforest canopy, but they do swim, and are excellent swimmers. Males "sing" to attract females. The Red-eyed tree frog hunts at night. They cannot survive without water and during the day they rest on the underside of huge leaves to save water loss from their bodies. They have about 60 babies a year. The eggs are usually found on a leaf over water. When they hatch the young (tadpoles) fall into the water. Red-eyed tree frogs eat many insects and are an important part of the rainforest food web chain. They have no protection against bats other than camouflage and to stay hidden. While many species of frogs are toxic to bats, the Red-eyed is not.


Reproduction = External


Larvae metamorphosizes from an aquatic tadpole into terrestrial, arboreal, or aquatic adult
