1 introduction since charles darwin proposed the evolution of animals by means of natural selection , the origin and evolution of chordates from common ancestor(s) of deuterostomes have been investigated and discussed for more than 150 years [2–20]chordates consist of three distinct animal groups: cephalochordates, urochordates (tunicates) and vertebrates. Dec 7, 2006 evolution of the nervous system through nine animal phylum the brain and notochord pertain to the nervous systems two main divisions animal collective laughy duck when you understand the meanings of the animal phyla names, you will find it easier to decide classify an organism. Using the dichotomous key the nine different animal phyla are placed in class categories the different steps are used to identify each class are submitted as well as the phyla name for each animal in part two, several questions relating to the animal phyla are answered. The nervous system of annelids and arthropods are constructed on the same basic plan (ventral nerve cord proceeded by a dorsal anterior brain) 3 few arthropod’s embryonic development displays some degree of spiral determinate cleavage (like that of annelids. The alternative scenario would be a single origin of the nervous system and thus the reduction of the nervous system in sponges and placozoans ryan et al, 2013 ryan jf.
In the animal kingdom, the term phylum is used, and it is the second largest group classes have more characteristics in common than animals in a division or phylum for example, amphibians, reptiles, and birds belong to the phylum chordata. The nervous system consists of dorsal cerebral ganglia and ventral nerve chord, with nerve cells along the length of the chord not necessarily confined within ganglia and with peripheral nerves from each segment. Tk-type peptides act as neurotransmitters, neuromodulators and neurohormones in both the central and peripheral nervous system of mammals, with roles in regulation of, for example, intestinal motility , smooth muscle contraction and cardiovascular function.
Comparative anatomy systems within the kingdom animalia the following presentation is a collaborative representation of information regarding the body systems used by the nine major phyla within the animal kingdom sensory/nervous system phylum chordata. The processes of evolution have altered the generalized the central nervous system mesoderm tissue may produce muscle and the remaining tissues and organs nine phyla phylum name examples animal type of symmetry sponge flatworm insect jellyfish human 8. Benjamin j liebeskind, 1,2,3 hans a hofmann, 2,3,4,6 david m hillis, 2,3,4 and harold h zakon 2,3,4,5,6,7 1 center for systems and synthetic biology, university. Blood travels posteriorly through a ventral vessel below the gut, passing through extensive sinuses to the gut and body wall nervous and sensory systems: the nervous system consists mostly of a subepithelial network, or plexus, of nerve cells and fibers to which processes of epithelial cells are attached. The animals, phylum level gallery index the animal kingdom with over 16 million known species 1 is divided into about forty groups, called phylum of which almost all fall into nine major phyla.
Evolution of the nervous system through nine animal phylum an overview of body systems and function the pancreatic islets are regulated by blood glucose concentrations (saladin, 2007. Chapter 23 the animal kingdom general features of animals all animals are multicellular heterotrophs they are diverse in form invertebrates are animal species that lack a backbone vertebrates have a backbone (about 1% of kingdom animalia) no cell walls active movement sexual reproduction embryonic development evolution the first multicellular animals evolved about 600 million years ago. Remaining on the right side of the law_临床医学_医药卫生_专业资料。chapter 23 the animal kingdom general features of animals all animals are multicellular heterotr.
Nervous system: the cnidarian nerve cells are the most primitive nervous elements tn the animal kingdom the zoologists are studying the evolution of animal nervous systems by the study of these cells. An arthropod (/ ˈ ɑːr θ r ə p ɒ d /, from greek ἄρθρον arthron, joint and πούς pous, foot) is an invertebrate animal having an exoskeleton (external skeleton), a segmented body, and paired jointed appendages. Soft-bodied animals had dominated early animal evolution during an earlier time just prior to the cambrian, the vendian (cambrian) in canada of the animal phyla, scientists consider nine major invertebrate phyla and the chordates to be of major importance in terms of biological diversity flatworms have a ladder-style nervous system.

Classify animals by phylum based on physical appearance earthworms have a head and a central nervous system earthworms respire through their moist skin as they dig through the soil and help loosen it they have a closed circulatory system in which blood is pumped by five pairs of hearts select one of the nine animal phyla and think. The nerve net of cnidarians is one of the best examples of a diffuse nervous system in the animal kingdom this plexus of nerve cells is found both at the base of the epidermis and at the base of the gastrodermis, forming two interconnected nerve nets. Because they are grouped in the same kingdom, the nine animal phyla share the same fundamental characteristics- they are multicellular, heterotrophic eukaryotes that obtain nutrients through ingestion, they lack cell walls, they have nervous tissue and muscle tissue, and they reproduce sexually and have a unique embryonic life cycle.
