Biology 2 Practical

Porifera: sponges are sessile with porous bodies and choanocytes
Parts of the sponge include •Spongocoel = Central cavity of sponge•Osculum= Larger excurrent opening of the spongocoel•Epidermis-Single layer of flattened cells which forms outer surface sponge•
Porocyte= Cells which form pores; possess a hollow channel through the center which extends from the outer surface (incurrent pore) to spongocoel.•
What is the simplest kind of invertebrate? The sponge.
Choanocyte= Collar cell, majority of cells which line the spongocoel; possess a flagellum which is ringed by a collar of fingerlike projections. Flagellar movement moves water and food particles which are trapped on the collar and later phagocytized.•
Mesohyl = The gelatinous layer located between the two layers of the sponge body wall (epidermis and choanocytes).•
Amoebocyte= Wandering, pseudopod bearing cells in the mesohyl; function in food uptake from choanocytes, food digestion, nutrient distribution to othercells, formation of skeletal fibers, gamete formation•
Spicule= Sharp, calcium carbonate or silica structures in the mesohyl which form the skeletal fibers of many sponges
What is a sponge shaped like? It is shaped like a sac with an opening at the top.
Spongin Flexible proteinaceous skeletal fibers in the mesohyl of some sponges
The first air-breathing land animals were: arthropods
How many layers is a sponge's body made of? 2 cell layers.
Where do sponges live? Sponges live in water, attached to sand or rocks.

The cnidaria contains hydras, jellyfish, sea anemones and coral animals.
Some characteristics of cnidarians include :•Radial symmetry•Diploblastic•Simple, sac-like body
There are two possible cnidarian body plans sessile polyp and motile floating medusa.
Some species of cnidarians exist only as polyps some only as medusae and others are dimorphic (both polyp and medusa stages in their life cycles).
What do sponges lack? They lack Systems so no muscles, no nerves and no organs for digestion or circulation
Polyp= Cylindrical form which adheres to the substratum by the aboral end of the body stalk and extends tentacles around the oral end to contact prey Cyanea capillataarctica→ largest, "Lion's Mane Jellyfish" or Arctic Jellyfish.
Medusa= Flattened, oral opening faces down, bell-shaped form; moves freely in water by passive drifting and weak bell contractions; tentacles
Cnidarians are carnivorous.•
