Geometroidea, Geometridae (Part): Fascicle 18.1: Geometrinae. Figure 18.7 The ocellus of a centipede (section). troglobitic myriapods have lost their eyes completely (eyes are absent in the centipede order Geophilomorpha, and the millipede orders Siphoniulida, Siphonophorida, and Polydesmida). In addition, workers have shown that relatively un- differentiated cells from mesenchyme-like layers of the body migrate to injured areas and contribute to various (and uncertain) degrees to the regenerative process.

Parasitic adults may bore into the host plant or, more commonly, deposit eggs in plant tissues, where they undergo larval development. Aging in modular organisms: Ecology of zooid senescence in Steginoporella sp. (Bryozoa; Cheilostomata). Note the hemal channels internal to each annular ridge. Evolutionary biologists rely on the principle of logical parsimony for the same reason other scientific disciplines rely on it: doing so presumes the fewest ad hoc assumptions and produces the most testable (i.e., the most easily falsified) hypotheses.

For example, mammals generally have a higher metabolism than reptiles and can thus sustain higher levels of activity for longer periods of time. microstructure -- n. Here the circulatory sys- tem has been completely replaced by coelomic channels. the nephridium back into the body, either directly into the surrounding coelomic fluid, or into the blood in cases where extensive nephridial blood vessels are pres- ent (e.g., in some nereids and in aphroditids).

Grassé (ed.), Traite de Zoologie 3(1): 462–576. The first trait is based on evidence suggesting that somatic growth—as during regeneration—is provided by totipotent, undifferentiated “stem” cells rather than by proliferation of previously differentiated ones. Many invertebrates with closed sys- tems rely on body movements and the exertion of coelomic pressure on vessels (often containing one-way valves) to move their blood. It seems to be common that web reports of tanks affected by sea cucumbers also include the sea cucumber itself among the casualties, and therefore, at least some of these “cuke nukes” reported on the web are likely to be the result of insufficient attention to a decaying animal in the aquarium.

The 4d1 gives rise to entoderm and thus to the intestine; the 4d2 produces the entomesoderm from which the body wall and mesenchymal muscles, much of the mesenchymal mass, and most of the reproductive system are derived. These cells are re- leased into the blood, where they mature and differenti- ate. The comparative early embryology of the Oligochaeta, Hirudinea and Onychophora.

In fact, Scheltema (1993) provided evidence that the molluscs and sipun- culans are sister groups (see Chapter 24). While thought to be mainly a cooling device, this behavior, by lowering the body temperature, probably also slows the rate of evap- orative desiccation. Trypanosomes have two kinetosomes, but only one has a flagellum. Enter a value or choose one from the dropdown lists.

However, we now know that onychophorans were part of the explosive marine diversification in the Early Cambrian (see Chapter 1). Then to refresh the objects to give life to the work over the year. Cnidarians are either sessile, sedentary, or pelagic, and do not engage in the active unidirectional movement seen in bilateral, cephalized creatures. Exactly where these groups arose along the proto- stome lineage is gradually becoming clearer. Spicules, tissue toughness, and nutritional quality.

Activity and Sensitivity Many protists display remarkable degrees of sensitivity to environmental stimuli and are capable of some fairly complex behaviors. Certainly other characters exist that can be used to describe the genealogy and evolution of the cnidarian classes. Symphylans and pauropodans also lack eyes. On the evolution of photoreceptors and eyes.
