Reproduction and Development Asexual processes. For example, a shrimp can be bisected vertically through its midline, head to tail, to produce right and left halves that are mirror images of one another. The majority of the free-living copepods, and those most frequently encountered, belong to the orders Calanoida, Harpacticoida, and Cyclopoida, although even some of these are parasitic. Baupläne, phylotypic stages, and constraint: Why are there so few types of animals?

Particle capture from low-speed laminar flows. An experimental investiga- tion of a direct life-cycle in Reighardia sternae (Diesing 1864), a pen- tastomid parasite of the herring gull. Senior Division projects otherwise appropriate for this category belong in Microbiology (General). 17. Practically nothing is known about the larval form of Malaysian crane flies. These direct flight muscles serve to raise and lower the wings and to tilt their plane at different angles (somewhat like altering the blade angles on a helicopter) (Figure 17.15).

Key works were his guides to “Marine Isopods of southern Africa” (1978), and “Marine Isopods Crustaceans of the Caribbean” (1989), the latter co-authored with his longtime assistant Marilyn Schotte. The tests of forams leave an excellent fossil record dating back to the Lower Cambrian. Their fossils have been found in Middle Cambrian ma- rine faunas at several localities (e.g., Aysheaia peduncula- ta from the famous Middle Cambrian Burgess Shale de- posits of British Columbia, Canada, and Aysheaia prolata from a similar deposit in Utah), in the remarkable Chengjiang Lower Cambrian (520–530 mya) deposits of China, and in the equally stunning Swedish Upper Cambrian Orsten fauna.

Moths of Borneo with special reference to Mount Kinabalu. There seems little doubt that changes in Hox, and other de- velopmental genes over time have profoundly affect- ed arthropod evolution.

These cell aggregates undergo schizocoely to become the right and left pericardial cavities, which later fuse to form a single pericardial cavity. †The Aschelminthes (or Pseudocoelomata) included the phyla Nemata,Nematomorpha, Acanthocephala, Rotifera, Gastrotricha, Kinorhyncha, and Entoprocta. ‡Rotifera, Gastrotricha, Kinorhyncha, Nemata, and Gnathostomulida.

(From Falmouth Public Library) - Martinez, A. Thus, to an embryologist, the term “mesenchymal cell” often denotes any undifferentiated cell found in the embryonic mesoderm that is capable of differentiating into such tissues.

The most sophisticated methods of feeding are those that require the active capture of live animals, or predation.* Most carnivo- rous predators will, however, consume dead or dying animal matter when live food is scarce.

Make sure to watch the ostrich, eagle and the loon. Whenever very large amounts of yolk are present (as in strongly telolecithal eggs), the cleavage planes do not pass readily through the dense yolk, so the blastomeres are not fully separated from one another by cell membranes.

Engelmann et al. [ 35 ] further demonstrated that earthworm innate immunity depended upon small and large leukocytes (coelomocytes) that synthesized and secreted humoral antimicrobial molecules (e.g., lysenin, fetidin, eiseniapore, coelomic cytolytic factor (CCF), and Lumbricin I). They are found by the millions in the digestive tracts, feeding on plant matter ingested by the host and converting it into a form that can be metabolized by the ruminant.

Since the position of head of the arachnology section was left vacant from 1969 until 2002, this collection was also managed by the staff of the invertebrate section. Willey in the ‘Loyalty Islands’ and ‘New Britain’ were also deposited here, including some of the earliest live-collected specimens of Nautilus. Many species are osmo- conformers (e.g., Arenicola), allowing the tonicity of their body fluids to fluctuate with changes in the envi- ronmental salinity.

This type of speciation may be viewed as either gradual or rapid. (C) One species remains un- changed, while an isolated peripheral population evolves into a distinct new species. Biology is often interdisciplinary in nature and may involve aspects of biochemistry, botany, genetics, microbiology, zoology, and many other natural sciences. Much work focuses on BC hummingbirds, including Anna's (shown here) and on diverse assemblages of tropical hummingbirds in Central and South America.
