How Many Kingdoms? Multicellular Animals MyxozoansProtozoans Tracheophytes Bryophytes True Fungi Slime Molds Red algae Brown Algae Green Algae Chrysophytes Euglenoids Archezoans Archaebacteria Bacteria Original Cell Extant Extinct Long Time with Prokaryotes only
Looking Back at Bio 115 The Organism as a Unit of Life Cellular Structure (cell = unit of life)…one or many! Metabolism = Homeostasis (PSN, Resp, N 2 fix, ferment, etc.) Growth = irreversible change in size Reproduction…failure = extinction Acclimatization-short term responses = behavior Adaptation-long term responses = evolution
Animal Features Multicellular Eukaryotes Heterotrophic Ingestion Collagen Protein Connections Nerve and Muscle Tissues Diplontic (Gametic) Life History Gametes Oogamous with Flagellated Sperm Zygote to Blastula, perhaps Gastrulation Larval metamorphosis into Adult Ontogeny Recapitulating Phylogeny
Animals probably evolved from a flagellated protist similar to the choanoflagellates flagellum collar cell body One step in this evolution is to become colonial. Here are the choanocytes of one of the simplest of sponges. Basically the most primitive animals. Of course the other required step is to eliminate the chloroplasts of the choanoflagellate (Chrysophyta!).
