Review of the clam shrimp family Lynceidae (Stebbing, 1902) (Branchiopoda: Conchostraca) in the Americas. General organization (general morphology, mode of life adaptations life cycles and economic importance) of the following groups with special reference to the topics mentioned in each group. Restated, animals have an embryogeny because of their evolutionary histo- ry. Roundworms are cylindrical in shape, tapered at both ends, and vary in length from being microscopic to 20 inches long.

Cleavage The stimulus that initiates development in an ovum is usually provided by the penetration of a sperm cell and the subsequent fusion of the male and female nuclei to produce a fertilized egg, or zygote. Gemmule dormancy appears to be of two types, a quiescence and a true diapause. 196 CHAPTER SIX UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOFS Quiescence is imposed by generally unfavorable condi- tions, including low temperatures, and ends when suit- able conditions return.

The houses are fragile and easily damaged. Most workers today use a method known as phyloge- netic systematics, or cladistics, when construing biologi- cal dendrograms and their resultant classifications. Understanding how a single limb moves does not, of course, describe the locomotion of the whole animal. It is most dramatically illustrated when cer- tain invertebrate herbivores undergo a temporary population explosion.

An interesting offshoot of the colonial theory was presented by Otto B├╝tschli in 1883. The ptychocyst, a major new category of cnida used in tube construction by a ceri- anthid anemone. In the latter case the anus opens either me- dially or on the right side of the mantle cavity. During division, the basal bodies of the two flagella separate and a spindle forms adjacent to them or adjacent to the striated root at the base of each.

Newly hatched and young larvae feed on tender shoots and along the edges of leaves, causing them to appear scalloped. Which pathway succeeds is determined by the competing action of these early gene products and by the influence of host factors. The axoblasts of sexual vermiform adults develop into multicellular structures called infusorigens, con- sisting of an outer layer of ova and an inner mass of sperm (Figure 7.3B).

Males are unknown in some genera, but most tardi- grades that have been studied copulate and lay eggs. Macro- evolutionary processes (e.g., speciation and extinction), on the other hand, act on species and lineages, disrupt genomic continuity, and create ascending, bifurcating patterns of relationship over time (Figure 1.6). The morphology and physiology of sponges were first ade- quately understood by R. Optical design and evolutionary adaptation in crustacean compound eyes.
