Kingdom Animalia In the following section we are going to examine five types of animal form out of the many that exist. The purpose being to compare the various major structural features of these five selected models of animals. These will be hydra, earthworm, grasshopper, bony fish, and mammal. You should learn the major features of each of these five examples. Then in the remainder of the course we will examine functional requirements of animals in context of their ecology and compare the structure of these five groups in relation to these functional requirements.
In species diversity, insects (class Insecta) outnumber all other forms of life combined. They live in almost every terrestrial habitat and in fresh water, and flying insects fill the air. They are rare, but not absent, from the sea. The study of insect, entomology is a vast field with many subspecialties, including physiology, ecology, and taxonomy. Class Insecta is divided into about 26 orders. Phylum Arthropoda Class Insecta
