Invertebrates Review

Fertilized egg 2 cell stage 4 cell stage 8 cell stage Morula Blastula Gastrula
Blastula hollow ball of cells
Blastocoel forms in the process of
gastrulation where the blastula
begins to move inward.
Blastopore hollow tube opening
Archenteron the hollow opening due to

Diploblastic jellyfish and hydra have
ectoderm and endoderm. Mouth and
anus from same hole.
Triploblastic Other animals have a
mesoderm that lies between ecto and
Protostomes mouth forms first from the
Deuterostome anus forms first from the

Annelids (Worms)

Coelom - body cavities lined by a mesoderm-derived tissue that also suspends the organs contained
within. Hydrostatic Skeleton.

Phylum Cnidaria (Hydra)

Polyp form is sessile (tentacles up) and the
Medusa form is free swimming.

Cnidocytes specialized cells that
immobilize their prey or for protection.
They contain nematocysts, capsules that
discharge stinging barbed projectiles.

Gastrodermis has gland cells that secrete digestive enzymes into the body cavity coelenteron
and nutritive cells, which absorb nutrients from the cavity via endocytitic vacuoles.
Epithelomuscular cells contractile fibers run perpendicular to them that allow the animal to
constrict the vascular cavity (decrease in diameter).
Interstitial cells stem cells that can give rise to different cell types.

Inch their ways along substrates by amoeboid movement of cells of the basal disc.
Vascular cavity acts as a hydrostatic skeleton and hydras extend their bodies by contracting
muscle fibers or retract their bodies by contracting longitudinal fibers.

Diet and Acquisition
Prey comes near and tips cilium nematocyst fires tentacles engulf prey Digestion.
They receive help from unicellular algae = symbiotic relationship

Form ammonia and it diffuses from the cell layers and is carried away by water currents.
Defecation feces come out the mouth/anus (indigestible remains of the animal).

Lack both systems. Simple diffusion of dissolved oxygen and CO
between the dermal layers
and the environment. Natural water currents help.

Nervous System
Decentralized Nerve Net nerves interlaced in mesoglea and extend to sensory cells,
epitheliomuscular cells.

Asexual reproduction with good conditions by budding. Poor conditions make hydras form
gonads hermaphroditic.

Earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris)

Phylum Annelida first true coelomic cavity with related organs grouped into definite regions
(body systems) and they have the metamerism body segmentation of serially repeating parts.

Septa side walls that are composed of connective tissue that is sandwiched between two layers of
epitheliomuscular cells mesothelium
Clitellum thickened ring of glandular epithelium divides the worms anterior and posterior regions.
Metamere body segments.
Prostomium hangs over the mouth but is not considered the first segment of the worm.
Peristomium the first segment that surrounds the mouth

Epidermis columnar epithelium that contains sensory and secretory cells. The secretory cells
retard desiccation of the worm.
Circular and Longitudinal Muscle decrease diameter and increase length and the other one
increases diameter and decreases length.
Peritoneum covers the longitudinal muscles at the tips. It lines the body wall and surrounds the
coelom space cavity between the inner body wall and the gut.

Complete digestive tract.
Bilateral symmetry.
Hydrostatic Skeleton.
Closed circulatory system.
No specialized system for gas exchange (Respiratory) diffusion of dissolved gases
across epidermis

Typhlosole increases surface area to help absorb more nutrients.
Nephridium Excretion

Longitudinal and Circular Muscles. If setae of the segments posterior to the contraction are
anchored to the soil, it results in pushing the anterior segments forward.

Diet and Acquisition
Crop food storage
Gizzard muscular walls mechanically grind up the contents into small particles
increasing SA hydrolyzed by enzymes released in the Intestine.
Columnar Epithelium dissolved nutrients from intestine absorbed and then transferred to
the chloragogen tissue
Chloragogue cells process nutrients, convert Carbs into Glycogen (like Liver in animals),
proteins deaminated and the nitrogenous waste (ammonia) is converter to urea. They can also
synthesize hemoglobin.
Anus undigested material (castings) are eliminated here

Nephridia coelomic fluid is pulled into the Nephridium by the beating action of hair-like
cilia. The capillaries return valuable reabsorbed nutrients to the blood stream.
Nephridiopore urine is excreted through here.

Dorsal Blood Vessel blood travels anteriorly to the pseudo-hearts
Pseudo-hearts contractile vessels, which connect the dorsal and ventral blood vessels.
They serve as accessory pumps.
Ventral Blood Vessel blood travels posteriorly, branches off into lateral branches to enter
organs but then comes back using the lateral branches of the dorsal blood vessel.

Diffusion of CO
and O
across the moistened epithilium. No true system for gas exchange.

Nervous System
Cephalization a concentration of sensory and neural structures toward the head of
Suprapharyngeal (cerebral) and subpharyngeal ganglion are the two masses of neurons
that are connected by two nerve bundles called the circumpharyngeal connectives.
Ventral Nerve Cord extends from subpharyngeal ganglion all the way to the last body

Hermaphrodite = monoecious = contain a complete set of functional male and female
Seminal vesicles lateral extensions of reservoirs and serve as sites of maturation of sperm.
Seminal receptacles where male sperm is fertilized and where the cocoon forms.

Crayfish (Cambarus)

Bilateral Symmetry
Open Circulatory System

Walking legs can move the crayfish forward, backward or sideways.
Abdominal Flexor Muscles flew or curl the tail downward and toward the anterior, which
causes the uropods to act as fins and propel the fish backward.
Abdominal Extensor Muscles stretched the flexor muscle so it can contract again.

Diet and Acquisition
Chelipeds can be used to capture food or for self defense
3 Pairs of Maxillipeds handle and reduce the size of food particles as they are passed to
the mandibles.
Mandibular Adductor Muscles move the mandible to crush the food through contractions.
Mouth Esophagus Cardiac Stomach
Cardiac Stomach - contains ossicles with teeth gastric mill with the help of anterior
and posterior gastric muscles grind, mix and regrind food in the stomach.
Digestive Glands secrete enzymes, which catabolize the absorbed nutrients, producing
ammonia. The n-waster diffuses out of gland to the surround hemocoel.

Mostly excrete n-waste through gills, which is done by diffusion across epithelium surfaces.
Green Glands small amount of secretion mainly osmoregulation.

Circulation - brachiopericardial canals
Open circulatory system.
5 arteries that leave the anterior portion of the heart
o Ophthalmic artery blood to brain and eye stalks
o Antennal Arteries blood to organs like stomach, green glands, and antenna.
o Hepatic arteries supply the digestive glands
o Dorsal Abdominal Artery supplies blood to tissues including gonads and
abdominal muscles.
o Sternal Artery supply blood to ventral nerve and other tissues.
As blood travels through the gills, blood gases are exchanged with the surrounding water.
Blood from the gills is drawn into the brachiopericardial canals pericardial sinus
blood back to the heart via the gills.

Respiration - Gills

Nervous System
Supraesophageal Ganglion brain.
Circumesophageal Connectives pass posteriorly on either side of the esophagus to join the
subesophegeal ganglion that lies deep within the exoskeleton.
Ventral Nerve Cord travels all the way to down to the last abdominal segment.

Male releases his sperm through the gonopores and inserts its into the females seminal
The sticky fertilized eggs bind to female swimmerets/pleopods.
