At about the same time, bees differentiated themselves from their wasp-like ancestors. The ciliate-to-acoel hypothe- sis (discussed in Chapter 4 as part of the syncytial theory of Hadzi and others) has been abandoned by most mod- ern zoologists. Some other aspects of photoreceptor ultrastructure in turbellarians are discussed by Sopott-Ehlers (1991). While the materials may vary, muscles allow vertebrates to move around very efficiently and perform complex moves. After they hatched, they passed through at least three larval stages of several instars each (Figure 15.33C–F).

The muscles form the contour of the body of a vertebrate. The Poriferan Bauplan In Chapter 3 we discussed some of the limitations of the parazoan grade of construction, in which true tissues and organs are absent. The beat of a cil- ium is generally simpler, consisting of a power stroke and a relaxed recovery stroke (Figure 3.7D). Within palaeozoology and palaeobiology, invertebrates are often studied within the fossil discipline called invertebrate palaeontology. They are present in major eukaryotic taxa, with two SAND genes in vertebrate species.

As in other arthro- pod groups, these basic body regions have undergone various degrees of specialization and tagmosis. Usually the circulatory fluid is an internal, extracellular, aqueous medium produced by the animal. Transactions of the American Entomological Society 128(4):403-466. Here visitors can view it from below at ground level, or alongside it on a walkway through to a new cafe and the adjoining Cambridge Conservation Initiative.

The collection's primary strength is its worldwide focus (60% of specimens from Africa, 25% regional, 15% from other regions), which distinguishes the DMNS entomology collection from other large insect collections in the region with mainly regional holdings. Many encrusting forms grow on the shells or exoskeletons of other invertebrates and some bore into calcareous substrata. How- ever, satisfactory confirmation of this theory has been dif- ficult to come by.

Their great size range, especially at the smaller end of the scale, adapts arthropods for a great variety of eco- logical niches. Dahl proposed the class Maxillopoda for these taxa. Cambrian “Orsten”-type arthro- pods and the phylogeny of Crustacea. Also, the rela- tively low capacity of body fluids to carry oxygen in so- lution is greatly increased by binding oxygen with com- plex organic compounds called respiratory pigments.

The photo- synthetic pigments include: chlorophylls a and b, phy- cobilins, β-carotene, and the xanthophylls neoxanthin and diadinoanthin. With so many predators, a housefly's average lifespan is even shorter: 21 days. Other invertebrates like lobsters and insects move around their whole lives. These sand dollars nestle among pebbles, which are brought to the mouth by podia and then rotated by the peristomial membrane while the teeth scrape off at- tached diatoms and organic detritus.

The basic polypoid symmetry is radial, although as a result of subtle modifications most species possess a bi- radial or quadriradial symmetry. Although the cave-dwelling caridean shrimp Procaris is omnivorous, its predatory behavior is particularly in- teresting. Some still believe that killer whales attack people when in fact they are peace loving creatures. Cephalon composed of (anterior to posterior): presegmental (indistinguishable) acron, antennular somite, anten- nal somite, mandibular somite, maxillulary somite, and maxillary somite; one or more anterior thoracomeres may fuse with the head in members of the classes Remipedia, Maxillopoda, and Malacostraca, their appendages form- ing maxillipeds 3.
