Close inspection of the proximal parts of the pereopods usually reveals an- other decapod feature: In most forms, the basis and is- chium are fused (as a basi-ischium), with the point of fu- sion often indicated by a suture line. The first record of cyclomorphosis in Tardigra- da, based on a new genus and species from Arctic meiobenthos. The events of the dicyemid life cycle that occur out- side the cephalopod host remain a mystery. Adobe Reader is required to open and print this pdf file (it's a free download at www.adobe.com).

Surface sense organs (the “arthropod setae”) dif- ferentiated, becoming numerous and specialized and acquiring various devices for transmitting sensory im- pulses to the nervous system in spite of the hard ex- oskeleton. Squids and octopuses use beak-like jaws to bite their prey and then inject poison to immobilize the victim. Collagen is the major structural protein in inverte- brates; it is found in virtually all metazoan connective tissues. It publishes research papers in the fields of ecology, evolution and behaviour.

Terrestrial arthropods like insects, millipedes, & centipedes have a system of hollow air tubes called tracheae as their respiratory system. A synopsis of the monogenetic trematodes. The evolution of downstream larval-feeding in animals. The problem is determining whether the organism is simply responding to the effects of temperature at a general physiological level, or whether discrete ther- moreceptor organs are also involved.

They are acquired by eating undercooked meat that has juvenile worms encysted in the muscle tissue. The oldest arthropods and the origin of the Crus- tacea. Blood is moved through the circulatory system largely by muscular action of the blood vessel walls. The Filaria worm attacks the lymphatic system causing great swelling.

The heart is a rather weak pumping organ, and blood is moved primarily by routine muscular activity of the body and appendages. Nimmo, 1890 A cryptozoological classic by John Ashton. The mouth leads inward to a short, mus- cular stomodeal pharynx, which is followed by an eso- phagus that extends through the introvert and into the trunk. Net primary productivity in coral reef sponges. A few possess an elongate “tail” (e.g., Uro- dasys; Figure 12.9). In addition to the lophophore, these three phyla share a U-shaped digestive tract and the absence of a head.

Thus millipedes tend to have shorter legs and slower, but more powerful gaits. Circulation and gas exchange are pre- sumably accomplished by simple diffusion in these tiny animals. In some acoels, temporary spaces form within the gastrodermal mass. They drew pictures, glued animal pictures on the cover, and/or put animal stickers on the front. The trunk bears middorsal and midventral, external, longitudinal ridges, which corre- spond to the location of certain longitudinal nerves and blood vessels.

Subsequent to copulation the males promptly die, and males are not seen again until the next swarming event. Nearly 2 million species have been identified to date. In arthropods, the chemoreceptors are usually in the form of hollow “hairs” or other projections, within which are chemo- sensory neurons.

This gland secretes a protective membrane around each egg. ORDER OPHIURIDA: Bursae present; dorsal and ventral arm shields present and usually well devel- oped; unbranched arms incapable of coiling verti- cally; madreporite on oral surface; digestive glands wholly within central disc. Most species produce very yolky eggs, providing the embryos with nourishment through much of their development. At one end of the gemmules an opening called micropyle is present.
